Networking short game at SACC's 20th Annual Bamboo Classic

Networking short game at SACC's 20th Annual Bamboo Classic

Imagine replacing the muted beige walls and lacquered wood trimming with the golden hills of the Northern California Valley; the blare of ringing cellphones silenced by the soft footsteps of wild turkeys crossing lush green grass; good food and good weather being the apex of a sales pitch rather than the staccato hum of a PowerPoint slide.

Imagine a boardroom presentation with Mother Nature as your Closer.

Nearly 20 Northern California businesses made the above a reality.   

The Sacramento Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce (SACC) hosted its 20th Annual Bamboo Classic Golf Tournament July 21 at Catta Vedera Country Club in Lincoln, Calif.

Over 140 golfers, representing a wide-array of the Sacramento region’s business community, participated in SACC’s signature fundraising event. Northern California small businesses capitalized on a unique opportunity to network with tournament participants through tee box sponsorship.

Learn to Cook: Grilled Summer Vegetables

Meat gets all the glory when it comes to the grill, but vegetables are just as delicious when cooked over a fire. The results are so versatile you’ll be wondering why you weren’t grilling everything.

Top Tips... Read More

  • Brush veggies lightly with canola oil to prevent sticking to the grill grates. You can also use special grill baskets or create packets out of foil for easy cleanup.
  • Resist the temptation to peel veggies before grilling. You’ll enjoy more smoky flavor and nutrients with the peel on.
  • When grilling corn, leaving the husk on can help keep the kernels from drying out.
  • Par-boil veggies like broccoli, carrots and potatoes to shorten grilling time and ensure a completely tender veg.
