According to Lois Jones, “This tournament provides much needed funds for the foster teens of San Pasqual Academy. College scholarships, athletic programs, academic enrichment programs, music programs, computers and more are made possible due to funds raised by many generous participants. Many wonderful high school memories for these foster kids are created by the efforts of Friends of San Pasqual Academy by putting on Proms, dances, graduation festivities, birthday parties and other events that would not occur without the support of many generous donors and supporters. This tournament and dinner make many things possible for these deserving teens.”
