Mayor Tom Butt’s 2nd annual golf tourney a fundraiser for youth sports


Mayor Tom Butt is inviting community members to support youth sports by participating in the 2nd Annual Mayor’s Community Fund Gold Tournament on Oct. 17.

The event will take place at the Richmond Country Club, 1 Markovich Lane, at 10 a.m.

Last year’s tournament raised more than $14,000, which was distributed among a dozen youth sports programs, including local YMCA programs, Richmond Swims, Richmond Tennis Association, the East Bay Soldiers and Richmond United Soccer Club. The money helped purchase equipment, pay for trips to tournaments and more.

This year, the mayor’s office hopes to double their haul by raising $35,000 for youth sports.

If you are interested in being an event sponsor or buying tickets, visit here or contact the Mayor’s Office at (510) 620-6527.
