Hero Challenge Golf Tournament Raises $1 Million for Charities

A record $1 million was raised for charity at the 16th Annual Stater Bros. Charities Jack H. Brown Heroes Challenge over the weekend at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, CA.

The event hosted 350 sponsors and special guests, including seven Congressional Medal of Honor recipients and 11 professional golfers including honorary tournament host Chairman Dave Stockton, Lee Trevino, Gary McCord, Donna Caponi-Byrnes, Brittany Lang and others.

On Sunday night at the Heroes Challenge Awards Banquet, Stater Bros. Charities awarded a total of $310,000 to local non-profit organizations that are making a positive impact through their community
initiatives in Southern California. These organizations included the Congressional Medal of Honor Society ($50,000), Michelle’s Place Cancer Resource Center ($50,000), Children’s Fund ($50,000), FIND Food Bank ($50,000), Shoes That Fit ($50,000), C4 Foundation ($50,000) and Hunter Lopez Memorial Foundation ($10,000).

“It’s because of our generous sponsors and the time given by our Medal of Honor recipients and professional golfers that Stater Bros. Charities can fund the important work of nonprofits throughout Southern California,” said Stater Bros. Charities Chairman and President Nancy Negrette. “While our participants get an opportunity to come together to enjoy a single day of golf and each other’s company, their generosity enables us to help the people in our communities every day of the year.”

Named after Stater Bros.’ late Executive Chairman, the Jack H. Brown Heroes Challenge Golf Tournament celebrates Brown’s legacy of honoring those who served and continue to serve our country, in addition to his generous support of the communities served by Stater Bros. Markets.
