The Home of Guiding Hands (HGH), an El Cajon-based non-profit organization that provides services, training and advocacy for people with developmental disabilities, reports it raised about $45,000 at its recent 31st annual Golf Classic Pro-Am Tournament. HGH said the tournament, held Sept. 27 at Sycuan Resort, featured 27 teams of amateurs playing with a PGA professional. The professionals competed for a share of a $5,000 purse donated by the Verbeck Foundation, the tournament’s presenting sponsor. This year’s winning team included PGA member Clint Higgins with teammates Cory Summers, Jim Summers, Jim Muse and Justin Muse. The winning team will represent HGH in another tournament for a chance for a trip to play at Pebble Beach and have $10,000 donated to HGH. Other Golf Classic sponsors included San Diego County Credit Union, Kerr Family Foundation, Video Fact Documentation Service, Sycuan Casino, Torrey Pines Bank, Hanken Cono Assad & Co., Inc., and California Bank & Trust.
