The Redding Pro-Am Golf Tournament is the premier golf event in Northern California to the Southern Oregon border. It started in 1973 and this year is our 50th Anniversary. Proceeds from this tournament have benefited the Shasta County Special Olympics since 1979. Without the yearly support from our continued sponsors, this event would not have been the success it is today.
This Tournament event has supplied the Shasta County Special Olympics with over half a million dollars in donations. Just this event alone provides over 70% of the SCSO entire yearly budget. There are over 400 athletes and coaches in 7 different sports and activities in Shasta County alone. All these sports activities have helped the athletes excel in self-esteem, sportsmanship, and integrity. The Athletes no longer are watching from the sidelines, or as a beginner. These athletes are developing their skills each and every year. And are smiling ear to ear.
A quote from Denise Caldwell area Director, Volunteer “We can never really find enough words to express how grateful we are to all of you for the support you have always given us. We can only try. . . and hope that our sincere appreciation comes through to all of the wonderful people who help make our program so successful! On behalf of our athletes, coaches, and volunteers: From our Heart to your Heart, THANK YOU!”
