The Lorena’s Links Invitational is always a fun day of golf and fundraising but the 2015 event will be extra special. On Monday, December 14 we are presenting the first ever Jorge Gamboa Amigo Award. This award is presented by the Lorena Ochoa Golf Foundation to an individual or organization exemplifying the meaning a true amigo. Inspired by a man who has dedicated his life to sharing happiness, helping others and providing positive experiences to everyone he touches. The Jorge Gamboa Amigo Award is an example of excellence, goodwill and a positive community impact.
Like always the golf tournament will include wonderful food, drinks (TEQUILA!), mariachis, free door prizes, auctions, DJ’s, and dancing. Plus this year participants get to play golf at the private and historic Victoria Club. In addition to all of that we are going to honor a special group of friends with the Jorge Gamboa Amigo Award. The Amigos are:
Jorge Gamboa Patron: Namesake of the award, Jorge is the Director of the Los Angeles Office of the Mexico Tourism Board and couldn’t be better suited for his job as an ambassador. He has a gift for bringing people together and spreading joy everywhere he goes, Jorge is the walking, talking and singing epitome of an amigo. He has been our amigo from the beginning and continues to help further the mission of the Lorena Ochoa Golf Foundation
Mexico Tourism Board: This group of dedicated ambassadors has supported the mission of Lorena’s Links from the start. With their support we’ve been able to grow our programs and expand our reach greater than we ever could have on our own.
Richard Cramer: Owner of Goose Creek Golf Club, home of the Lorena Ochoa Golf Academy. The support of Richard Cramer, his family and Goose Creek Golf Club have helped Lorena’s Links grow to what we are today.
SmartRiverside: Our strategic partnership has allowed us to join forces and help educated kids with the creation of Code To Careers where we inspire children with free computer coding classes. We are excited to have the Honorable Rusty Bailey, Mayor of Riverside receive this award on behalf of our partnership.
Connolly Oyler: In 2002, Connolly’s wife, Michelle, discovered her father’s extended family in Guadalajara, MX. Then an LPGA Rookie, Lorena Ochoa was part of this discovery and a special bond was formed. Connolly served as a director for the Lorena Ochoa Golf Foundation from our inception till his recent passing.
