"We are sincerely grateful to Deloitte for their continued support," stated Sacramento Children's Home CEO Roy Alexander. "The boys in our residential program who have had so much of their young lives taken from them are going to have a great time playing on the new playground equipment. It will be a lasting legacy to the generosity of Deloitte and the sponsors of this annual tournament."
