Thanks to all who participated in the 12th Annual Del Sol Golf Classic on Friday, September 16, held at Old Mill Golf Course in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Proceeds from the Del Sol tournament were donated to the David B. Pedersen Foundation, which began six years ago and has since awarded $125,000 in scholarships to more than 100 students. Former Del Sol CEO, Bob Pedersen, and his wife, Catherine, including Del Sol & Cariloha President & CEO, Jeff Pedersen, and his seven other siblings, created and organized this foundation in honor of their youngest son and brother, David, who passed away in September 2005. The foundation awards scholarships to outstanding students who have “bounced back” from life’s obstacles and shown resilience and achievement in scholastics and being drug free.
The David B. Pedersen Foundation works closely with Salt Lake County’s Granite Education Foundation and several other amazing teachers through¬out Utah, including Taylorsville and East High teacher, Leigh Vanden Akker, who spearheads an incredible growth and learning program, called Techniques for Tough Times, from which several applying students are selected for scholarships.
Thanks to each of you from the Del Sol family for your ongoing support and contribution to this wonderful foundation. You have made a big difference!
