“I’ve played in this tournament since the beginning and it’s a great event for a great cause,” retired Cal Fire Capt. Brian Riggs of Temecula said. “The course, the food, the raffle… it’s all top-notch.”

Temecula Dollars for Scholars is a volunteer-run nonprofit organization that awards college scholarships to Temecula Valley students. Temecula Dollars for Scholars was created in 1987 by a small group of Temecula Valley High School teachers and parents who wanted to raise funds to assist graduating seniors. Since then, Temecula Dollars for Scholars has donated more than $3 million in community scholarships to TVUSD graduates. These awards are made possible through the generosity of local businesses, civic and charitable organizations, school PTA foundations and individuals.
