Century Club of San Diego Presents
Diamond In The Rough” Gala
Saturday, January 21, 5:30pm at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel

Featuring Grammy Award Winner Trisha Yearwood

Event To Benefit Pro Kids Academy and Monarch School

The Century Club of San Diego, the organizing body for the annual Buick Invitational golf tournament, will host their inaugural Diamond In The Rough Gala/Dinner Saturday, January 21 at 5:30 p.m. at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel.

The event will feature Grammy Award winning artist Trisha Yearwood in concert and will benefit Pro Kids Academy and the Monarch School.

Established in 1994, The Pro Kids Golf Academy & Learning Center's mission is to provide a safe, healthy and positive environment where children can spend their free time learning and playing golf. The Pro Kids Golf program helps combat juvenile delinquency in providing students an opportunity to learn new lifetime skills and be initiated into the strong value system of honesty and integrity that is an important part of the game of golf. Located in the City Heights area of San Diego, California, Pro Kids utilizes the eighteen-hole par-three Colina Park Golf Course and clubhouse.

The Monarch School’s mission is to provide an environment where homeless and at-risk youth can improve their lives through education. Monarch operates through a partnership between the San Diego County Office of Education, which provides the educational component, and the Monarch School Project, a non-profit formed to raise money for the non-traditional needs of Monarch's students, such as after-school programs, visual and performing arts, field trips, mentoring, tutoring, and post-graduation support, as well as, the basics of laundry facilities, food, clothing, and personal hygiene items.

“We’re really looking forward to the Diamond In The Rough event and how it will impact our San Diego youth. Having Trisha Yearwood will be a true centerpiece to the gala and this will quickly be one of the landmark fundraising events for our community each year,” said Bill Potter, President of the Century Club of San Diego. “Both Pro Kids Golf Academy and Monarch School are certainly deserving charities and we’re looking forward to presenting their organizations a substantial check from event proceeds. With the support of all the Century Club members, we feel our event will be a huge success in our first year and will grow year after year.”

On her website, Trisha’s musical prowess is simply explained. “She has crafted a musical career that is not only timely, but timeless. Day by day, she has earned success alongside only a handful of others not content with the immediacy of trend or compromise. Fortunately for her, the rewards have duly arrived. Fortunately for music lovers, the inspiration and virtue remain intact.”
