6th Annual Charles A. Pacheco Memorial Golf Tournament
Held on Monday, June 3, 2019, the 6th Annual Charles A. Pacheco Memorial Golf Tournament was another great year! Thanks to our sponsors, golfers and volunteers we were able to donate $5,000 to local non-profits! The final report is below.
Charles Pacheco and Belinda Ferrero established the golf tournament in 2014 to fund local non-proﬁts, as well as the Civitan International Research Center. Despite being diagnosed with cancer in January 2014, Charles continued to work tirelessly for the cause of Civitan, creating fun times and soliciting the most golf sponsors at for that year. He lost his battle with cancer in July 2014.
Charles’ life can be summed up in four words: faith, family, career and community. Charles was a devout member of his church, a member of the parish ﬁnance committee and member of the Knights of Columbus. He was the epitome of a family man; there was nothing he wouldn’t do for them. Charles had a distinguished career with the State of New Mexico Workforce Solutions, ﬁnding employment for thousands of individuals. Charles was very involved in the Santa Fe Civitan Club, serving as president twice and as an inspiration and boisterous cheer leader. His wife, Bernadette and daughters Jennifer, Amanda and Charlene along with his family, are keeping his spirit among us through their personal involvement with this golf tournament in Charles' name.
Charles Pacheco was well-known for his jovial manner and loving spirit. We all miss him.
