Anaheim, California – For many people who are in recovery, discovering a new sport is a novel experience that can help them refocus their energies towards healthier pursuits. Alumni residents of the Lighthouse Treatment Center, a drug and alcohol residential treatment facility in Anaheim, CA, were given this chance when they took part in the Canyon Club Annual Golf Classic last August 10.
The annual golf tournament was held to raise funds for the maintenance of the Canyon Club, a facility located in Laguna Beach that serves as a venue to support people in recovery. Participants of the golf tourney were also treated with dinner, a silent auction, and a helicopter ball drop.
According to Bill McGowan, event chair of the Canyon Club Annual Golf Classic, the tournament was held to further support the Canyon Club’s mission. “We hope that with the funds raised at the event, the Canyon Club can continue to provide a facility for 12-step meetings for alcoholics, their families, and friends, as well as a variety of educational, recreational, social and other activities and events that support the Club’s mission.”
Alumni members and staff of the Lighthouse Treatment Center participated in the event which was held at the Tijeras Creek Golf Club in Rancho Santa Margarita. The activity was a part of the Lighthouse Alumni Program that aims to introduce clean and sober activities people in recovery could enjoy.
Jocel Bibera, alumni coordinator of the Lighthouse, stated, “The Canyon Club Golf Classic is an amazing opportunity for our Lighthouse alumni to participate in a relaxing and fun event for a good cause.”
