Another great turnout for the 12th Annual SCV Sheriff’s Foundation & Search and Rescue Golf Tournament fundraiser, held on September 17th at the Oaks Club Valencia.
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 The Oaks were in perfect shape on what turned out to be a beautiful, although very hot, day for golf. Once again, the tournament was graced with the Laker Girls who mingled with the golfers, taking photos and signing autographed photos. But the biggest award for everyone is that a record $40,000 + will now go to our SCV Sheriff’s Station, and Search and Rescue Team, for the purchase of lifesaving, law enforcement equipment and volunteer training.
The SCV Sheriff’s Foundation, 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. AMS CEO, Ken Wiseman, is president of the Foundation.
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, of which Ken Wiseman is a member, 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 fallen officer, Deputy Arthur Pelino, who was killed in the line of duty on March 19, 1978. 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 four excelling students.
AMS joins the organizations in offering thanks to the major sponsors, and the many, many others who have lent their support to the success of the tournament. Many of the sponsors of the event have been supporting the Foundation and the Search and Rescue Team for all eleven years.
