The Whitmore Open is more than a golf tournament, it’s a celebration of life. The celebration is held each year to remember and honor our friend, Charles Whitmore Riske III (“Whit”) who passed away suddenly on October 30, 2011 while running the Los Angeles Rock N’ Roll half marathon. Whit had such a positive influence on everyone he touched, specifically the real estate community in Southern CA. The community gathers each year to generously return the blessing. All of the proceeds raised during the golf event are donated to both Whit’s three year old daughter Scarlett’s education fund, and a cause Whit would have wanted to support, the Wounded Warrior Project.
