Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
The Friends of Manteca Parks & Recreation Foundation just recently conducted the “Jim Brown Swing for Youth” Benefit Golf Tournament. Proceeds from this event help the Manteca Parks & Recreation Department in supporting youth and teen program scholarships.
A successful tournament requires strong community support. This support comes in the form of player participants, major sponsors, course sponsors, donors and volunteers. This year we had an excellent blend of community support and benefactors.
