1st Annual MAD MAC Golf Tournament
FONTANA, CA.- On Friday, April 22, 2011, a collaboration of Award Winning Non-Profits and Foundations will pull all resources together to raise funds for the youth in the Inland Empire. Strategically planned through the MAD MAC FOUNDATION, a 501(c)3, major corporate funders, small local businesses and the community at large will have an opportunity sow into the lives of so many youth from all ethnicities by supporting the 1st Annual MAD MAC Golf Tournament at Sierra Lake Golf Course.
Assortment of activities are being planned at the 1st Annual MAD MAC Golf Tournament that gives participants a day of golf, dinner, casino and just a whole lot of fun. Yet, through all the festivities, numerous nonprofit organizations will receive funds that will have an impact on the youth in our communities.
The funds received are being generated by those that share in the same belief that our kids need resources and opportunities and it’s the nonprofit sector that can fulfill those needs with the services they provide directly in the inner trenches of the streets of the Inland Empire.
Those that know the need understand the lack of funding and believe that financial support is needed in order for those organizations to survive also know that at some level, they will contribute to 1st Annual MAD MAC Golf Tournament. Whether as a team of golfers, sponsorship, vendor or just a donation.. high participation will result in achieving the financial goals sought!
The 1st Annual MAD MAC Golf Tournament will feature several top athletes and various celebrities/artist who have joined forces with the MAD MAC Foundation to assure financial success is achieved. Confirmed players include: Host Lil Jordon, 13 year old 2010 Official Ambassador of USATF Junior Olympics Track and Field with special guest Desmond Bishop, Super Bowl Champ 2011 LB Green Bay Packers and the City of Fontana Mayor- Acquanetta Warren. Additional celebrities and artist are being confirmed and will be announced at a later. All confirmed celebrities/artist are coming on their own free will and MAD MAC Foundation is not responsible for any itinerary or schedule changes.

ABOUT MAD MAC FOUNDATION is a 501(c)3, it was founded in April of 1996, with a vision to keep at risk youths away from gangs, drugs, and the many negative avenues presented to youth today. MAD MAC believes that the future lives on through the actions of our youth and we must educate our youth to be positive and productive members of society. We believe education starts at home, blossoms in schools, and flourishes in the community. While MAD MAC realizes that education is a key and essential part of youth success and subsequent career opportunities, we use a realistic approach to raising youth out of poverty, crime, and violence, by offering alternative options for high-risk youth. Our programs focus on learning through hands-on experience such as working with and learning from people in vocational industries such as music, entertainment, film, fashion, real estate, construction, and small businesses.
