Lexus Day 1: Giving Is Breakfast Topic

Editor’s note: I’m at Pebble Beach for the 2012 Lexus Champions for Charity as a guest of Lexus. This is another installment in an ongoing series.

LEXUS HELPS RAISE A LOT OF MONEY for a lot of worthwhile causes.

That was the message I heard at the players breakfast this morning before heading out to The Links at Spanish Bay. And the message wasn’t delivered by the Lexus folks who invited me to participate in, and write about, this event. It came from players seated at my breakfast table.

A Santa Fe man raved about the money donated to his local JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).

Another two men from the Bay Area who have played in this event several times talked about money poured into a community center in East Oakland, where many youth face every challenge you can imagine, including just staying alive.

According to Lexus, the Lexus Champions for Charity has raised more than $245 million in about a quarter century.
