Published on

PASADENA — Golfers lined up in rows of carts await the 8 a.m. tee off, Friday, for the Southern California Black Chamber of Commerce 25th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic. High Desert chapter members competed at the Brookside Golf Club, in a day filled with networking and camaraderie.

“This is our annual Juneteenth Celebrity golf tournament. Next year, Juneteenth will be a national holiday,” said Southern California Black Chamber of Commerce President Rich Wallace. “We’ve been pushing for it and now it’s come to fruition. We’re so glad that we have a full golf course and people are coming out to celebrate the Juneteenth celebration.”


The Southern California Black Chamber of Commerce has 13 chapters, including the High Desert, with over 1,800 members. The business organization helps members network, bring business to members and help educate members so they are prepared to do business with mainstream America.

“This is our first tournament with me as President of the High Desert — Stevevonna as Vice President of the High Desert,” said High Desert Black Chamber of Commerce President Terrance Stone.

“It’s important that we come out and network with all these good brothers and sisters.”

“I’m super excited to be here and learn the game,” said Evans.

Stinson, an avid golfer, said it’s great to get around other great people from California.

“I’m just ready to have a great time and enjoy myself while I whoop everybody’s butt today.”
