Costa Mesa, CA (December 14, 2018) – QSC recently hosted its third annual QSC Charity Golf Classic, benefiting Orange County United Way (OCUW) and their initiative to end homelessness in Southern California. The event was held at Tustin Ranch Golf Club in Tustin, CA on Monday, October 22, 2018. Through the efforts and contributions of QSC partners, guests, and employees, the event raised more than $20,000 to benefit the United to End Homelessness Initiative.
Attendees joined QSC to benefit this worthwhile cause in a variety of ways including player packages and corporate sponsorships. The schedule started with a golf show, and following the tournament, guests were invited to dinner and an awards ceremony.
“QSC is honored to support a cause such as Orange County United Way, working to solve one of the most pressing issues in our community,” says Joe Pham, QSC President and CEO. “Thank you to everyone who participated in the event; and for the generosity and support.”
United to End Homelessness was launched by Orange County United Way earlier this year in response to the historic homelessness crisis facing our community. This countywide coalition includes some of Orange County’s top business, philanthropic, government, and non-profit sector leaders. The goal is to achieve Functional Zero homelessness by March 1, 2024. OCUW plans to accomplish their goal by expanding scattered site rental housing for homeless individuals, launching public awareness campaigns, understanding the size and needs of the homeless population through data and performance metrics, and ensuring all available public and private sector funding is focused on the most critical problems and solutions proven to end homelessness.
“We are tremendously grateful for QSC’s support of our United to End Homelessness Initiative,” said Susan B. Parks, President and CEO, Orange County United Way. “We are tackling this growing crisis, and partnerships like this are critical to our ability to create change and find lasting solutions for this under-served population."
