SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

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.
