At this year’s 5th Annual Sacramento Capital Cup, 32 golfers helped to raise a whopping $1.97 million, making it the region’s most impactful fundraiser, second only to the Big Day of Giving. Founded by DCA Partners’ Curt Rocca, the Capital Cup adapts the historic Ryder Cup format to promote community pride, healthy competition, and raise money for the Sacramento region’s many deserving charities. Divided into two teams, Sacramento business leaders played in an exciting 3-day golf tournament to raise money for their favorite charitable organization. The 2019 tournament took place at three of the area’s most prestigious golf courses: El Macero Country Club, Serrano Country Club, and Granite Bay Golf Club.
“What makes the Capital Cup unique is that participants select their own charity,” said Rocca. “They fundraise for a cause close to their heart and hit the phones, asking their peers and friends for donations.”
For the fifth year in a row, River City Bank’s President & CEO, Steve Fleming played on behalf of Easter Seals of Superior California. Through generous donations, Steve raised over $38,277 for Easter Seals.
In just five years, the Capital Cup has raised over $5.6 million, benefitting 50 individual charities in the Sacramento region. In all, there have been 65 Capital Cup golfer philanthropists, from various industries and backgrounds, seven of which have participated all five years, including River City Bank’s President & CEO, Steve Fleming.
