President's Message

Seventy-one golfers (71) joined me on October 25th for our 28th Annual Santa Ana Chamber Golf Classic. Yes it rained but not until the last 2 holes. We MADE it!!

Last year smoke and wind, several years ago 107 degrees next year SNOW? But we finished and had a great time supporting our Chamber work. GREAT thanks to all our participants , Chamber Staff, Paula Garcia-Arsenault and her Community Engagement Council team. 

Congrats to Stu Betti, Lee de Leon, Chris Harrell and Corey Leak for posting an excellent low gross score of 58 to claim the 1st place honors.

 Looking ahead to Thursday, November 18th for our final VISIONMAKER'S breakfast event with Moderator Jena Jensen (Chamber Board Chair) and guest speaker Ralph Opacic Founder of the Orange County School for the Arts.

Let's relive the day, by taking a look at some of the pictures from that event.

The campaign is running September through December and features one of the city’s many murals, “Innerself” by artist Kimberly Duran, on various sized banner ads. I’ve attached a visual.
