Palm Springs Youth Charities held its first annual Golf and After Party on May 5th, Cinco de Majo day. The golf tournament was held at Desert Dunes Golf Course in Desert Hot Springs, the Official golf course for the Greater Palm Springs Celebrity Golf Classic with a shot gun start at 8:30 am.

The American Legion Hall in Palm Springs hosted the After Party with a Cinco De Majo Fiesta theme. A Mexican Feast in honor of Cinco De Majo was prepared by Chef Juan and his staff. The Jackson Garrett provided the entertainment and dance music for the party. Their music had a lot of people filling the dance floor in front of the band.

Awards were presented to a few servicemen as the event honored our Navy Seals. Col. Tom Nelson and Navy Seal MCPO Brad Lucas were honored on stage. Other awards went to people who had helped put this event together. Winners of the golf tournament were given trophies.

Local celebrities participated in this event. Some even performed for the guests at the Party. A silent auction was held. Founder of Palm Springs Youth Charities Tony Aguilar presented the awards. The organization is a non-profit charity.
