After about 5 hours of competitive golfing, the beautiful Spanish style clubhouse hosted a cocktail reception and awards ceremony following the tournament. The highlight of the evening was the silent and live auction, which raised $25,000 for the chosen charities. Items auctioned included a Master’s jacket, signed by the Masters winners, raising $6,000. A package to play in a foursome with NFL Players Eric Dickerson and Marcus Allen at Sherwood Country Club was also auctioned off.

The Kyles Family Foundation (KFF), The Boys and Girls Club of Camarillo, and The Brotherhood Crusade were each presented with a $10,000 check and US Bank made a pledge of $5,000.

Guests and celebrities in attendance enjoyed their day on the golf course, and at the clubhouse. Cedric the Entertainer inspired his guests to become great citizens of the world, affecting the lives of so many others. As Cedric would say: “Laughter is a great tool; let’s put it to work.”
