CHICO, Calif. - On July 23, a big check was given to two Chico groups following a golf tournament in June.

The tournament, 'Driving Fore Autism', raised over $20,000 for 'Yellow Door' of Chico and Chico State's Autism Clinic. The check was presented at the Butte Creek County Club before being split evenly.

Dozens of local businesses contributed to the cause and they hope the act of kindness will inspire others.

"These times when people are searching for ways to help in the community with the fires and all that is going on... It is awesome that we all step up and help out with causes like this, as well," said Bob Battezzato of Cleanbrite Buildrite. "The great thing about this town is people are always willing to raise their hand and support this community."

Battezatto added most of the money was raised in the eight years of the tournament.

We're closing out the month of November in a pleasant way in northern California Tuesday. We'll have some gusty wind tonight and early Wednesday, but December will begin with warmer and drier than average weather.
