11th Annual ATT Golf Classic Raises More Than $325,000 for Orange County Council

The company with the nation’s fastest 3G network is not only improving wireless coverage in Orange County but is also helping to provide opportunities for Orange County’s youth. ATT* announced today a donation of more than $325,000 to the Orange County Council, Boy Scouts of America, which will be presented at an Angels Baseball game in Anaheim, Calif. The money is a result of the 11th annual ATT Classic, which was recently held in Carlsbad, Calif.

“The dollars raised in this tournament help the Orange County Council continue to provide opportunities for local youth, including disadvantaged children, to participate in the Scoutreach and Learning for Life programs,” said Les Baron, scout executive, The Orange County Council, Boy Scouts of America. “Without ATT’s help and the fundraising efforts of this annual golf tournament and silent auction, these programs would be unable to sustain themselves, leaving more than 32,000 youth without the character-building and leadership opportunities that the Orange County Council provides.”

Since its inception in 1998, this tournament has raised more than $3.2 million in net proceeds. All proceeds benefit the Orange County Council, Boy Scouts of America. With five facilities and more than 65,000 youth involved in the scouting program, the Orange County Council is one of the largest in the country.

“We continually strive to find ways to positively impact our local communities,” said Andy Shibley, ATT’s Greater Los Angeles Vice President and General Manager. “ATT has a long-standing tradition of supporting charitable organizations and initiatives that strengthen the community and this is no different. All of the proceeds from this event go directly to help Orange County’s youth.”

This year’s tournament committee comprises executives from ATT and is chaired by Shibley and Matt Cave, ATT area retail sales manager of the Greater Los Angeles market.
