More Than a Fundraiser

The Love Fore San Diego Zero Waste Golf Tournament is more than a fundraiser for I Love A Clean San Diego County (501c3), it is a move by the organization to demonstrate how zero waste events can be produced without leaving a trace on the environment, while making events fun and educational. 

“People come from around the world to visit our region and play on its many outstanding golf courses, so we’re excited to create this unique opportunity for local players and those who are visiting,” said Keith Riggio, board member and tournament chairperson for I Love A Clean San Diego. “We want people to come enjoy and see that the zero waste effort supporting the tournament enhances their experience. We can all be part of the solution on and off the green.”

Inspired Nationally, Planned Locally

When planning for its event, organizers were inspired by the zero waste efforts of the PGA’s Phoenix Open. I Love A Clean San Diego’s board decided its mission would directly influence a regional golf tournament for the recreational player.

“Refuse, Reduce, and Recycle are the elements we will incorporate through our expertise to ensure nothing goes to the landfill,” said Len Hering, executive director of I Love A Clean San Diego. “In addition, the event and every participant’s carbon footprint will be offset through a certified carbon offset program.”

Sign up and Support

Online registration and corporate partnership opportunities are now available at event website. Most sponsorships include a foursome, but players can sign up now as singles, twosomes and foursomes.

In the coming years, I Love A Clean San Diego plans to host the tournament at other venues throughout the county to demonstrate the zero-waste event model can be done anywhere and showcase the region’s best championship golf courses for players of all skill levels.

Since 1954, I Love A Clean San Diego and its volunteer corps have been responsible for cleaning over 8.5 million pounds of litter from San Diego County’s streets, parks, canyons, beaches and other open spaces. Through education, it has also helped tens of thousands of people reduce their impact on the environment. Now entering its 67th year, the organization is doubling down on its commitment to zero waste engagement and education.
