Mayor’s Cup tourney raises funds for youth services

May 17, 2008|By ISABEL ADAMS

The Mayors Cup Charity Golf Tournament sponsored by the Burbank Sunrise Kiwanis on April 25 at DeBell Golf Course was a great success, organizers said.

“There is no better way to show support for our community than investing in our youth,” said Mike Caggiano, Kiwanis member and one of the organizers of the tournament. “One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the Mayors Cup will go directly into programs that have a proven track record in the area of youth services.”

In addition to supporting services and charitable organizations that benefit our community, the Mayors Cup Golf Tournament honors the past mayors of Burbank. Commemorating the “Official Mayors Day” in the city of Burbank, all past mayors are invited to participate in the tournament and the post-tournament activities. Some of the mayors attending included Lee Ayers, Dave Golonski, Marsha Ramos, Mary Lou Howard, William Rudell, Larry Stamper, Mike Hastings, Vince Stefano and Dave Laurell.
