Getting back into the swing of things is never easy after the weekend we had in paradise. This past Saturday 80 First Tee of Fresno participants traveled to Pebble Beach Golf Links to watch our very own, Michael Cliff, play in the Nature Valley First Tee Open. The participants arrived at Pebble Beach in the morning, and after a quick meeting, were able to explore the course and grab lunch. After a quick lunch break, all participants and volunteers surrounded the first tee at Pebble Beach, to show support for Michael’s opening tee shot. Once Michael teed off, 150 strong followed and cheered him on for the first eight holes.
Unfortunately, they could not stay with him for the duration of his round, because the participants had an event to attend at the Chevron STEM Zone. They had a first-hand experience with STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) exhibits. Activities included shooting basketballs with glasses that blurred ones vision. At the end of the day, everybody was exhausted and climbed onto the bus with their #TeamCliffy hats signed by Michael Cliff. We can’t wait to experience Pebble Beach and cheer on our participant next year!
We’d like the thank the following volunteers for dedicating your Saturday to give our participants an unforgettable experience at Pebble Beach: Brian Whaley, Eric & Janelle Paolinelli, Carlie Gantar, Glenn Rogers, Mario Yep, Kay Hamiliton , Cecil Spurlock, Jon Moore, Danielle Cash, Garrett Bader, Greg Pena, Duane Evans, Ren Grossman, Brian Rabena, Chris Marquez, Linda Cavazos, & Randy Van Ornam.
