Notable Moment: The fourth annual event celebrated The Londen family, who has been involved with the foundation since 2018. The Tom Londen Golf Classic was created to honor their father and give back to the community. Their last fundraising event surpassed half a million dollars donated to ACFC. In addition to hosting their yearly golf tournament, they have volunteered their time, donated essentials in times of need, sponsored other events and shown up for ACFC time and time again.
