Another Successful Bregante + Company LLP Golf Tournament Supporting Agape Villages Foster Family Agency


Thank you to all our clients and friends who participated in our 15th Annual Bregante + Company LLP Fundraising Golf Tournament benefiting Agape Villages Foster Family Agency.

At the risk of rain, 55 golfers began their 27-hole round at Poppy Ridge Golf Course in Livermore, California at 8 a.m. yesterday, October 25th.  Luckily, 15 minutes of light showers turned into a beautiful and fun day of golf.  We look forward to seeing everyone again at next year’s tournament.

Agape Villages is a licensed foster family agency placing children in foster homes in communities throughout Northern California.  They provide needed services to foster families and disadvantaged youth.  We are proud to support their efforts for the fifth consecutive year.
