United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County (UCP-OC) recently held its 17th Annual Life Without Limits Autumn Classic and The Brianna Cup at the Santa Ana Country Club. The fundraising golf tournament brought in $132,000 to support families and children affected by cerebral palsy and associated disabilities. UCP-OC supplies vital services and support to improve the well-being of disabled people. 

Dana Dowers, CEO of Insurance Brokers Inc., started the tournament fundraiser almost 20 years ago and served as the founding sponsor. This year’s tournament chairman, Scott Pievac, CEO of SPC Retail Display Group, combined his Brianna Cup golf charity with UCP-OC’s Autumn Classic three years ago to honor his 12-year-old daughter.

Pievac says a key advantage to supporting UCP-OC is the opportunity to participate with children, and that the need is greater than ever. “At a time of deep state budget cuts, this tournament will benefit families that have no place else to go for services.”

The tournament’s winning foursome – Jeff Griffith, Mike Skochinski, Dan Vittone and Chris Zamora (pictured, left to right) – represented Voit Real Estate Services. Richard Borkowski won the drawing package featuring a one-week’s stay at Hacienda de Mita, in Punta Mita, Mexico.

“Life is incredibly difficult for families of children with disabilities,” Dowers said, “and I only hope that my support will impact their quality of life and serve as inspiration for other businesses to get involved.”
