On Thursday, June 1, 2023, Project Access presented its annual charity golf tournament at the beautiful Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine, California. More than 114 participants, representing 31 sponsors from various sectors such as real estate, banking, construction, and family foundations, raised over $300,000 for Project Access.

Project Access Board of Directors and Advisory Board: Dan Stanger, Vice Chairman, and Chief Investment Officer-Emeritus, Bridge Investment Group; Chris Garcia, Vice President CRA Officer, Banc of California; Kristin Byrnes, CEO & President, Project Access Bill Whalen, Managing Director, Wells Fargo & Co., and Matt DeGraw, President, Bridge Property Management.

Shawn Boyd, Chief Investment Officer, Affordable Housing Access; Matt DeGraw, President, Bridge Property Management, Chairman Dan Stanger, Vice Chairman and Chief Investment Officer-Emeritus, Bridge Investment Group and, Bill Whalen, Managing Director, Wells Fargo & Co., led efforts for this year’s tournament.

In addition to some duffer antics and good fun on the links, and some occasional serious play, the tournament boasted a live auction with an array of incredible offerings such as Wrigley Field Box Seats, a Napa Valley Epicurean Adventure, a Utah Ski Adventure, and a Winner’s Choice US Getaway (the highest winning bid at $7,000)
