WIM California Raises Record $17,800 for Scholarship Program

2022’s outing drew 144 registered golfers that made corporate sponsorships to WIM California.

WIM California raised a record $17,800 from its annual charity golf tournament. The event, which is held every Spring at Spring Valley Lake Country Club in Victorville, California, is supported by mining operators and suppliers throughout the region.

For WIM California, a co-ed, non-profit organization focused on public education on aspects of the mineral resource industry, this annual golf tournament in Victorville has become the organization’s most successful one-day fundraising event. Money collected from the tournament will go to WIM California’s educational efforts inclusive of the Scholarship Program, purchasing supplies for hands-on classroom activities, field trips, and other educational initiatives.

“The generosity of our sponsors in 2022 was remarkable. We had concern about what success the tournament would have, following the pandemic, however we collected more sponsorships for this tourney than any tourney before it. We are deeply grateful for industry’s support for our mission. Our organization will benefit from this generosity and allow us to educate on the value of mineral resources in our communities.”
