Guest speaker Jim Madaffer from the California Transportation Commission spoke to the meeting attendees about the future outlook of transportation funding for San Diego County and the State of California. 

He also touched on State Bill 1077 (DeSaulnier) which would create a pilot program in California that would tax drivers based on the number of miles traveled, instead of paying a tax at the gas pump.

Local construction aggregate producers and related professionals keep a close eye on transportation issues that could impact their businesses.

Project Cornerstone Receives Local Support at Inaugural Golf Tournament Fundraiser

Written by Alyssa Burley.

San Diego, CA - Project Cornerstone, Inc. – a grassroots organization dedicated to educating the public about the importance of local construction aggregate resources like sand, gravel and crushed stone, successfully hosted its inaugural golf tournament fundraiser on November 21, 2014, at the Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook.  The event was designed to raise funds for Project Cornerstone’s education and community outreach programs.

The early-morning rain that fell on San Diego County would not threaten Project Cornerstone’s inaugural golf tournament or the organization’s drive to host a memorable event.  By mid morning, the rain passed and the event started without a hitch.

Nearly one hundred golfers participated in the inaugural golf tournament.  Fifteen companies sponsored portions of the event.  Fourteen companies donated products and services for the golfer’s gift bags and raffle prizes.

“For a first year, [Project Cornerstone] managed to put it all together in a very professional manner,” wrote Bill Campbell from Applied Industrial Technologies.  “I look forward to being part of this great endeavor for many years in the future. Thanks again and congratulations.”

As a result of many volunteers, sponsors and those who attended, the event raised over $7,000 to support Project Cornerstone’s mission.

"It was great to see everyone come out and participate in our first event,” said executive director of Project Cornerstone, Crystal Howard.  “We really appreciated everyone's eagerness to get involved and we were excited to award our top three teams with some amazing trophies that were representative of the industry.  We look forward to hosting the event again next year."

The dinner banquet following the tournament served as the Winter Quarterly Meeting.  Crystal Howard delivered an overview of the organization’s recent activities.

Project Cornerstone is already working to schedule its Second Annual Golf Tournament in 2015.  Sponsors and volunteers interested in participating in next year’s event should contact Alyssa Burley at (619) 284-8515 or alyssa@project-cornerstone.org.

The event drew a crowd of over 130 players to raise funds for the ACI San Diego Chapter and the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP).

ACI is a non-profit technical and educational society and one of the world's leading authorities on concrete technology.

Funds raised for the Wounded Warrior Project were donated to the WWP Packs program.  The backpacks are filled with essential care and comfort items, and are given to wounded service members in order to make their hospital stay a little more comfortable.

Project Cornerstone staff members, Crystal Howard and Alyssa Burley, handed out much appreciated water, soda and snacks to players on the 7th hole.  Overall, the response from the players was enthusiastic about the work Project Cornerstone is doing throughout the County.  Many of the players requested information about the organization and the upcoming Project Cornerstone Golf Tournament on November 21, 2014 at Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook, CA.
