East County Posse Golf Tournament Raises Funds to Help Local Residents

For the 11th year, the East County Posse (ECP) hosted its Annual Golf Tournament which raises funds to help those in San Diego's East County. The sold-out event took place on Friday, June 1, 2018 at the Steele Canyon Golf Club in Jamul, CA.

"Proceeds from this golf tournament will be used to help those in our community that need it most," says the event's flyer. The East County Posse is an all-volunteer organization where no one takes a salary, and it does not use any of the funds for administrative costs.

The organization provides a hand-up to both deserving individuals and families. Last year, the ECP donated funds to help the family of a nurse who had contracted a flesh-eating bacteria while delivering her baby. The group re-furnished the bedroom of a 15-year old girl who suffers from non-hodgkins lymphoma.  Another family was helped by providing a wheelchair and installed handrail for a 12-year old boy with cancer. In addition, the ECP covered some of the family's uninsured medical expenses.

Not only does the ECP provide funding to those in need, they also provide their time, skills and expertise. Many ECP members are in the construction industry and are able to donate labor and materials for projects like wheelchair ramps, accessible bathrooms and other building projects to assist those with special needs.
