AMS CEO, Ken Wiseman, has long been involved in community service, in particular Search & Rescue volunteering and support of the SCV Sheriff’s Foundation. Recently co-workers and friends of AMS, and of the Sheriff’s Foundation, joined him in a fundraising event that broke records.
On September 18th, 112 golfers took to Valencia’s Tournament Player’s Club (TPC) golf course in The SCV Sheriff’s Foundation & Search and Rescue 11th Annual Golf Tournament.
The tournament has become quite an AMS Fulfillment tradition as many of their key vendors, associates and clients participate in the event, while the AMS associates also play an important role in gathering raffle gifts, arranging the sign printing, making the gift bags and so on.
At the event, golfers were treated to a full breakfast, BBQ Lunch, and Dinner along with an Opportunity Drawing. The greens at TPC were in perfect shape on what turned out to be a beautiful day for golf. To top it off, the Laker Girls once again joined the group at the award ceremony.
But the biggest award for everyone is that a record $33,000 will now go to our local Sheriff Station for the purchase of lifesaving, law enforcement and search and rescue equipment and training.
The SCV Sheriff’s Foundation, currently chaired by AMS Fulfillment’s CEO Ken Wiseman, was formed in 1984 by local citizens. Their intention was to assist local law enforcement and station volunteers in a tangible way, purchasing equipment and crime prevention materials as well as raising funds to help community service programs at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
The Santa Clarita Valley Search & Rescue Team is a volunteer group formed to assist the Sheriff of Los Angeles County in search and rescue operations or any other governmental agency, upon request. They also promote wilderness recreation safety for the people of the community. The SCV Search & Rescue Team works under the direction of the SCV Sheriff’s Station.
Regarding the success of the tournament, Ken said, “This event goes a long way in showing our Deputies and SAR volunteers just how important they are to this community.”
Significantly, the event gave tribute to LASD Sergeant Steve Owen, who was killed in the line of duty on October 5, 2016. In his honor and memory, a $2,000 scholarship was presented to the Hart Union High School District representative, Susan Reynolds, to be shared with 4-excelling students that are pursuing a law enforcement career.
AMS joins the organizations in offering thanks to the major sponsors, listed below, the long list of support sponsors and the many, many others who have lent their support to the success of the tournament. Many of the major sponsors of the event have been supporters for all eleven years.
