Century Club Golf Tournament Gets Title Sponsor

The Long Beach Century Club announced that the Molina/Rudy Family Fund will be the title sponsor of the club’s 13th Annual Long Beach Mayor’s Trophy Charity Golf Tournament, set to be held May 2 at Skylinks Golf Course.

The Molina/Rudy Family Fund, led by Heather Rudy and Josephine Molina, will have name branding at the city’s largest sports-related fundraiser. Over the last 13 years, the Mayor’s Trophy has raised more than $1 million for Long Beach charities, and under mayor Robert Garcia it’s benefitted the Century Club, a non-profit which supports amateur athletics in the city. The club has established the Mayor’s Education Scholarships, awarded to seniors of each Long Beach high school at the annual Century Club Sports Night Banquet. To date, more than $100,000 of scholarships have been given out.

“I am delighted to join with the Molina/Rudy Family Fund and local businesses in supporting the Long Beach Century Club’s mission of helping young people in our community,” said Garcia in a statement.  “Education and healthy development through sports go hand in hand in cultivating our next generation of leaders, and I look forward to welcoming everyone to Skylinks on May 2 for an exciting day of great golf, great food, and charitable giving.”

The golf tournament is already sold out, but anyone interested in sponsorhing it can contact Cindy Elliott at 562-896-1177.
