The City of Hope® and 30th Annual West Coast Golf & Tennis Tournament announced sponsorship and support are growing for one of the industry’s largest fundraising events.
This West Coast Golf & Tennis Tournament set for June 13 in Coto de Caza, Calif., faces a shorter than usual fundraising window because the 2021 event was postponed to December 2021. But the event committee said it is up to the challenge with the enthusiastic support of this year’s honoree Roy Hester.
“We’re pleased and grateful for the support we’ve received so far, and the momentum is building as our sponsors and longtime supporters help spread the word. Our industry will always show up big for City of Hope,” said Hester, senior vice president and managing director of Planned Furniture Promotions.
