The San Juan Capistrano Rotary Club raised around $23,000 from their fifth annual golf tournament at San Juan Hills Golf Club on June 13.

The money will go toward the club’s charitable projects and efforts, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley, the J.F. Shea Therapeutic Riding Center, Great Opportunities and college scholarships for local students. Last year, the tournament raised $18,000.

More than 130 golfers participated in the shotgun tournament, including 16 marines from the city’s adopted regiment, the 1st Battalion, 11th Marines at Camp Pendleton. The marines were sponsored by Rotarians.
