The charity golf tournament is one of the area’s most impactful fundraisers
Roseville, CA – DCA Partners (“DCA”) is pleased to present the seventh annual Villara Capital Cup golf tournament, this year in a new partnership with the Sacramento Region Community Foundation (“Foundation”). DCA continues in its role as the Presenting Sponsor while the Foundation will manage and disburse donations on the tournament’s behalf.
The golf tournament will take place September 24-26 at three of the region’s most prestigious country clubs. Meanwhile, its 32 golfer-philanthropists are diligently fundraising on behalf of one of 28 local and national nonprofit organizations. Each participant is an executive leader in Sacramento government or business, with a passion for enriching the community through philanthropy and good works. The 32 participants are
split into two teams, which will compete on the golf course for a $100,000 prize fund, to be awarded to their respective nonprofit beneficiaries. The prize fund comprises player fees and a $45,000 title sponsorship from Villara Building Systems.
“What makes the Villara Capital Cup unique is that each golfer-philanthropist selects his or her favorite charity to represent, making the event widely impactful,” said Curt Rocca, Founder and Chair of the Villara Capital Cup. “Furthermore, each golfer-philanthropist pays $2,500 just to participate, which combined with sponsorships, pays for the administrative costs to host the tournament.”
Partnership Between DCA and the Foundation
The Sacramento Region Community Foundation and Villara Capital Cup share a consistent mission: to improve the quality of life in the Sacramento region, especially for those in the most need.
“The Villara Capital Cup’s affiliation with the Foundation made sense from day one,” commented Rocca. “Their upstanding reputation and ability to administer donations to multiple beneficiaries made the Foundation a natural partner.”
As part of its initiative to grow local philanthropy, the Foundation coordinates the region’s other major collaborative fundraiser, Big Day of Giving, which has helped hundreds of area charities raise millions of dollars since 2013.
“We are thrilled to partner with DCA to support the Villara Capital Cup—and, together, applaud the golfer-philanthropists who are bringing so much good to the causes they support,” said Linda Beech Cutler, Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation.
