Stellar Distributing Celebrates 24th Annual Cap/Pow Memorial Golf Tournament
MADERA, CA - There is probably nothing more beautiful than people coming together to support a worthy cause, and this can be seen industry-wide—almost as if it's in our DNA. It’s a family affair that reaches beyond the nuclear household and into an industry family that is eager to assist in making life better for everyone. This togetherness can be seen in Stellar Distributing’s 24th Annual Capp/Pow Memorial Golf Tournament, which was held on Monday, April 30th, at Madera Country Club in Madera, California.
This year’s event had a spectacular turnout, with 50 to 60 of the distributor’s customers from all corners of the world—Italy, Greece, Canada, Puerto Rico, you name it—showed up in a big way, ultimately donating around $25,000 to The Nancy Hinds Hospice. This honor was deeply felt by those within the industry and families that comprise it.
“I put my heart and soul into this tournament, and the overwhelming support from all the companies all over the world for the past 24 years means so much to me and the community. Thank you is an understatement for all the donations for Hospice we received from all our customers and vendors,” Kurt Cappelluti shares with me.
Some of the attendees included TMK Produce’s John Birch, Regatta Tropicals’ Steve Matych, and many more.
Those who participated in the fundraiser tournament paid $150 per player or $600 per team, which gave them access to a cart, lunch on the course, a golfer’s gift, two drink tickets, range balls, Sunday dinner, and green fees. Proceeds went to The Nancy Hinds Hospice.
The fundraiser’s name is in honor of Kurt’s father, Paul Cappalluti, and Stellar Distributing’s long-time and beloved Office Manager, Judi Powell, and has seen far-reaching and meaningful achievements throughout the years. With next year being the 25th annual tournament, the industry can hop onto the opportunity to support the event to keep the charity a success.
How will next year’s event top off this year’s grand success? We can’t wait to find out!
