PARAMOUNT, Calif., July 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Last week, Total-Western hosted its first annual charity golf tournament and raised more than $30,000 for local chapters of American Cancer Society (ACS) and Surfrider Foundation.
In honor of the company celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Total-Western golf tournament was disco-themed, throwing it back to 1972 as a “Funkytown Par-Tee.” Attendees were encouraged to dress the part by sporting afros, bell bottoms, platform shoes, and psychedelic shirts.
“We are so grateful to everyone who participated in this special event and their generosity. Whether it was sponsoring the tournament, donating raffle prizes, volunteering, or contributing individually, all our sponsors and participants were eager to support these two incredible non-profit organizations,” said Payman Farrokhyar, President of Total-Western. “As for the disco theme, people went all out – we were so impressed! The spirit and creativity gave the event a fun, energetic vibe which is what we were hoping to emanate.”
The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem.
“The American Cancer Society was honored to be one of the beneficiaries of the Total-Western Golf Tournament,” said Kristyn Grime, Associate Director for ACS West Region. “Funds raised from this event will benefit the Huntington Beach community through patient programs and services, life-saving research, and 24/7 support.”
Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit that has grown into one of the world’s largest and most effective conservation organizations. It provides boots on the ground to help clean and protect oceans and beaches so that coastal communities and local wildlife can thrive.
“Being honored alongside the American Cancer Society at this event was even more special and important to our chapter because we recently lost our longtime leader and mentor, Tony Soriano, to cancer,” said KC Fockler, Co-Chair of Surfrider Huntington/Seal Beach Chapter. “Tony was a pioneer, spokesperson, and active environmentalist for Surfrider whose leadership will be greatly missed. We are grateful to have been a part of this fantastic event so we could honor him and others facing cancer.”
