SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. — Agri-Turf Distributing’s 4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament raised  $78,000 for the American Cancer Society. The event was held on July 26 at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club in Tustin, Calif.  Since it began in 2015, the tournament has raised over $199,000 for the American Cancer Society.    

Kristin Strauch Executive Director of the American Cancer Society – Western Region said, “On behalf of cancer patients, and their families, I would like to thank you for your support of the American Cancer Society.  We are truly grateful for your participation and generosity as we attack cancer from every angle.”
Agri-Turf President Rich Records attributes the success of the event to the generous support from the industry and local businesses.  “We appreciate the tremendous support we received from industry, and from the local business community.  Working together we not only met our goal of raising $50,000 for the American Cancer Society, but surpassed it by $28,000,” said Records.
