Kristen Thompson, executive director of the American Cancer Society’s Desert Coastal Area, received the check with Tad Heitmann, chair of the American Cancer Society’s Orange County Community Council, and Rich Records, president of Agri-Turf.

Agri-Turf, a Santa Fe Springs, Calif.-based specialty chemical and equipment supplier, raised $44,000 for the American Cancer Society during its 3rd Annual Malcolm Stack Charity Golf Tournament at Tustin (Calif.) Ranch Golf Club.

After play, all 120 golfers joined up at the clubhouse for dinner and a silent auction. Agri-Turf CEO Lon Records opened the evening festivities by thanking the sponsors for their generous support stating, “We are here to raise funds to support ACS, but also to remind everyone that early detection is the key to improving odds against this terrible disease. When someone is diagnosed with cancer, it is imperative to get a second opinion at a center of excellence.”

Kristen Thompson, executive director for the American Cancer Society — Southern California and Nevada markets said of the event, “We are deeply indebted to Agri-Turf Distributing for three years of incredible leadership at this event.  The funds raised support our key programs of cancer research, patient services, and education.”

Don Ebarb, superintendent at Skylinks Golf Course in Long Beach, Calif., honored the memory of his friend and former colleague, Chris Freniere. Freniere, the former assistant superintendent at Shady Canyon Golf Course, Irvine, Calif., lost his battle to an extremely aggressive form of Lymphoma this spring.
