Annual Golf Tournament Raises More Than $40,000 for the Taylor Family Foundation


Goodfellow Top Grade Construction’s 2nd Annual “Little Heroes” golf tournament, held on September 30th, 2013, at Ruby Hill Golf Club in Pleasanton, Calif., generated more than $35,000 for The Taylor Family Foundation (TTFF) of Livermore, Calif., and its Camp Arroyo program.

With the money raised, TTFF will be able to continue their efforts of providing a summer/weekend camp experience for children living with life-threatening illnesses and disabilities such as heart and skin disease, brain tumors, Autism, Celiac Disease, and HIV/AIDS to name a few. The children TTFF serves come from all 39 counties of Northern California to enjoy a therapeutic respite - completely free. Each year, TTFF provides this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to more than 3,000 campers over the course of 11 weeks during the summer and nearly 10 weekends. It is the foundation’s goal that each of these wonderful kids can check their illness or disability at the door when they arrive at camp and “just be kids”, feeling welcomed and supported while having endless amounts of fun. Entering its’ 3rd decade of service, TTFF has helped more than 40,000 children attend camps and has provided respite for nearly 70,000 parents.

 “What a gift Top Grade has been to The Taylor Family Foundation. They are an organization of people who really care,” stated Elaine Taylor, Co-Founder of The Taylor Family Foundation. “Their compassion starts at the top and goes right on down through employees, customers, vendors and friends. We are forever grateful for their gifts of labor, funding, time and hearts of gold.”

“We recognize that the long-term health and success of our company stems from forward-thinking business practices, including our ongoing commitment to social responsibility”, said Lee Myhre, Director of Marketing and Tournament Chairperson.
