With the goal of surpassing previous annual fundraising efforts, the 20th Annual Cinco de Mayo Golf Classic will be held Friday, May 4, at the Silverado Resort & Spa in Napa.

For 20 years, the Cinco de Mayo Golf Classic has been the only fundraising event in Napa Valley exclusively dedicated to the needs of migrant farmworkers.

“Golf Classic funds are used chiefly for housing repairs, maintenance and improvements at Napa Valley’s three farmworker centers. We fill gaps not covered by Napa County or the state,” said Pat Garvey, president of Cinco de Mayo Golf, Inc., the non-profit organization that oversees fundraising for the farmworker centers. “We’re grateful for the Napa Valley community’s past support, and hope that in our 20th year we can surpass our previous annual fundraising efforts as this generous community steps up again.”

The event will feature a full day of entertainment including golf at the Silverado Resort & Spa, continental breakfast, mid-morning margaritas and taquitos, a raffle, golf prizes, souvenirs and a Cinco de Mayo-themed luncheon featuring Seve & Fifi’s Mexican cuisine. An auction will feature a special lot donated by 49ers legend Ronnie Lott, including lunch with him and memorabilia.

Businesses wishing to be underwriters, sponsors, golfers and other supporters can register for and donate to the Golf Classic online by typing in 2018 Cinco de Mayo Golf Classic at eventbrite.com. Space is limited to 144 golfers.

Alternatively, send checks payable to Cinco de Mayo Golf, Inc. to Cinco de Mayo Golf, Inc., 1889 W. Zinfandel Lane, St. Helena, CA 94574 or email to Nickie DeLuna at cincodemayogolfclassic@gmail.com. For more information call 963-1688.
