Pro-Am Raises Over $400,000 to Support Foundation Programs

The Cameron Champ Foundation Pro-Am at the 2022 Fortinet Championship was a tremendous success, with 108 players coming together to raise more than $400,000.

That money will support our foundation’s programs for young people from diverse backgrounds, including college scholarships, the Mack Champ Invitational, STEM education initiatives and more.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Fortinet for hosting our outing for the second consecutive year at the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, where Cameron earned his second PGA Tour victory in 2019. And it was great to see so many of our generous supporters come together for such a fun-filled day. Marlon Jones and Jayden Lizama, local junior players and Mack Champ Invitational veterans, were also on the course.
