Proceeds from the annual Mid-Cal Alarm Association golf tournament were presented today in Fresno to causes supporting the victims of human trafficking and drug addiction.
Made for Them, a nonprofit social enterprise that uses events and fashion to combat human trafficking, received a $3,500 contribution, as did P.A.I.N. (Parents and Addicts in Need), which specializes in rehabilitation services and support for users and their families.
Mike Matson of Matson Alarm and Mike Tarin, president of the Mid-Cal Alarm Association, also presented a $5,000 check to Fresno Police Chief Dyer in support of the department’s K-9 program.
Jamie Brown, executive director of P.A.I.N., said the organization is currently looking to raise $40,000 to open a sober living home by the end of the year, and is currently at the $28,000 level.
