After final calculations were tabbed, about $14,000 was raised in the Bubba Kapko Memorial Golf Tournament, tournament director Jim Huffman said.
More than 150 golfers participated in the event Nov. 14 on Costa Mesa Golf & Country Club’s Los Lagos course.
Named in memory of Brian “Bubba” Kapko — a 2004 Estancia High graduate who died in a car accident in August — the tournament was held as a fundraiser for the Estancia Athletic Booster Club and the Bubba Kapko Memorial Fund.
About $1,200 is designated for the Estancia athletic teams, Huffman said, while $4,000 is for the booster club. About $9,000 will be donated to the memorial fund, Huffman said.
Huffman said it hasn’t been decided how the memorial fund will be used, though it will probably be designated for some type of athletic scholarship fund for current or former Estancia athletes.
