A fundraising golf tournament featuring former USC football players has raised more than $75,000 for an organization that works to prevent child abuse in Riverside County.
The annual Olive Crest Golf Invitational in Palm Desert drew more than 100 guests on Monday, Feb. 7, according to a press release. Former USC football player and Olive Crest administrator Darnell Bing chaired the fundraiser and was joined by many former USC football teammates.
Proceeds from the event will help expand services, Tracy Fitzsimmons, executive director of Olive Crest Inland and Desert Communities, said in the release.
“We have an obligation to expand services wherever needed and to ensure safe and loving homes for every child,” she said in the statement. “It is both our responsibility and a moral obligation.”
