James Caan Golf Classic
Rogen Studio’s donation to the “James Caan Golf Classic” for the Impact Program was over $5000.00 in apparel merchandise. Rogen Studio has and will continue to strive in its social /corporate responsibility towards causes that benefit others. Appearing with Rogen Studio executives Derek Ro and Ardy Tjahjono with some of our favorite friends!”
How it started: Ronnie Caan, our Director of Public Relations, and a graduate of Impact, may have produced some mighty fine films in his lifetime, but I argue that his greatest contribution will be the work he has done here at Impact. Since he first arrived at Impact about ten years ago, this amazingly charismatic man has contributed much to our lives both personally and professionally. He has brought us to tears in laughter, he has introduced us to people and ideas we would never in a million years have had without him, and he has been responsible for producing our largest annual fundraiser, the James Caan Golf Classic.
About two years after Ronnie started working at Impact, he and Jim Stillwell, our Executive Director, were talking (they actually never stop) and they came up with the idea of a James Caan Golf tournament. It was a no-brainer idea. All they really had to do was convince Ronnie’s brother Jimmy to do it, no biggie. Well, Ronnie asked, and Jimmy (an Impact grad in 1996 and he’s doing fab, thank you) said yes, of course. Ronnie tested the waters by asking a few old friends to sponsor, they said yes, of course, and the rest is history.
Always held on the last Monday of April, this year will be our sixth annual. And gratifyingly, and most amazingly, in spite of the economic turmoil of the day, every one of our sponsors of the past years will be returning this year to support us. We are so grateful both for their support and for the good fortune that continues to follow them as well.
This is a good day for everyone. It gives Jimmy and Ronnie a chance to spend time with good friends, Impact the opportunity to tell our supporters who we are, and the clients come with us to help put on a quality tournament, have lots of fun and see what life can be without drugs and alcohol. What could be better that that?
There is an argument against spending money to raise money and I get it. We do our share of pure fund raising here, believe me. But the resultant public relations of this event, the numbers of men and women who subsequently find treatment as the result of someone who hears about Impact through this event, is priceless. I can’t argue with that. (Impact Program)
