The following day, participants will have a 12 noon shotgun time as they make their way around the South Course which will include a post-tournament reception and awards ceremony. Proceeds for the event will support Camp Erin® and Camp Mariposa®. Camp Erin works with children ages 6-17 who’ve experienced the death of someone close to them and is held annually through a partnership with The Elizabeth Hospice. Camp Mariposa, in partnership with San Diego Youth Services, works with teens 9-12 whose families have been affected by addiction. It is held six times a year.
