Lorena Ochoa To Host Charity Golf Classic At Valencia Country Club

Lorena Ochoa and American Hakko are partnering to raise money for the La Barranca Educational Center in Guadalajara, Mexico.

La Barranca Educational CenterOchoa, who started golfing when she wa she was 5 years old and went on to win 129 local, national and international titles, now focuses on charity and golf course design.

Her nonprofit Lorena Ochoa Foundation supports the La Barranca Educational Center for underprivileged elementary and middle school children on the outskirts of Guadalajara.

The center employs a diverse curriculum and provides community education classes after school, in soccer, judo, computers, dance, music and drama.

American Hakko got involved with the Lorena Ochoa Foundation after CEO Hitoshi Fujiwara established a distribution center in Mexico.

Fujiwara met Ochoa at a golf tournament, learned about her charity efforts and wanted American Hakko to be a part of what she is doing in Guadalajara.

“The bottom line is, we need to help those children,” Fujiwara said. “There is such a great reward in being able to give back and help the communities in which we work.”

Lorena Ochoa

The Golf Classic is sold out, with more than 100 women golfers participating. Last year’s tournament raised more than $82,000.

Ochoa plans to be at this year’s tournament and spend time with the participants, instead of just lending her name to the event.

“Lorena isn’t just putting her name on things,” Fujiwara said. “She is passionate and committed to the causes she supports. That extends to spending the day with the golfers, hosting a golf clinic, sharing tips and enjoying the great course at Valencia Country Club.”
