Southern Wine and Spirits of Southern California: Cal-Pac Scholarship Fund For African-American Students

The company is an active supporter of numerous social responsibility, educational and charitable programs throughout the state." Brad Vassar, Vice President and General Manager of Southern Wine and Spirits (SWS) of Southern California, said that among the many social services, medical and community-based charitable activities undertaken every year by SWS of Southern California, the Cal-Pac scholarship program is one of the most meaningful.

In concert with the Southern California African-American Retailers Group, selected African-American college-bound high school students who show great promise are furnished with significant financial support in order to attend a university of their choice.

Part of the charitable effort, according to Mr. Vassar, involves an annual golf event in which many local dignitaries, ex-professional sports and football stars, retailers and SWS of Southern California team members all compete, with all proceeds benefiting the Cal-Pac Scholarship Fund.
