5th annual Mason-McDuffie Mortgage Charity Golf Tournament

April 25, 2011 - Registrations and sponsorships are now being accepted for the 5th annual Mason-McDuffie Mortgage Charity Golf Tournament that will be held Monday, June 27 at the Diablo Country Club.

            The tournament benefits the Huntington’s Disease Society and the Contra Costa Board of REALTORS Scholarship Foundation. The previous Mason-McDuffie golf events have raised more than $40,000 charities.

            Kaveh Sartipi, tournament chairman, said, “This tournament allows our company to give back to charitable organizations that make a big difference to the people they serve. It aligns with our core values.”

            Sartipi, manager of the Danville branch and company vice-president, is chairing the event for the third year.

Huntington’s disease is a genetic disease passed from a parent to a child in which certain nerves in the brain degenerate. There is no known cure, but the society is funding research seeking both better treatments and an eventual cure.

Mason-McDuffie chose the Huntington’s society after some of their associates told them about a friend who had the disease.

The Contra Costa REALTORS’ scholarship is designed for a college student who has been enrolled a major in college that could lead to a career in real estate. A grade-point-average of 3.0 is required to apply for the scholarship.

            The tournament will be a scramble format with a noon shotgun start. The beautiful Diablo Country Club features a traditional layout with small greens and huge old oak trees.

            Entry fees include golf with a cart, lunch, tee prizes and dinner. Participants who enter before May 15 qualify for the early bird special of $195. Entries after that date are $225.
