The California Moving & Storage Association (CMSA) gave its Chapter of the
Year award to the San Diego Chapter during its Paradise Awards Luncheon on May 18, 2013, during the 95th CMSA Convention.
San Diego Chapter President Thomas McCarthy of McCarthy Transfer & Storage, Inc. (an interstate agent for Wheaton World Wide Moving) in El Cajon, Calif., was given the award on behalf of the chapter. McCarthy thanked the chapter members for their support during the course of the year and asked members who supported the chapter to stand up for recognition during the luncheon.
Successfully keeping the chapter’s donation amounts under wraps until the luncheon, McCarthy declared that the San Diego Chapter raised $25,000 for the CMSA Scholarship Fund and $500 for the Special Olympics. McCarthy said the chapter’s annual golf tournament had nearly 130 golfers attending the event. The San Diego Chapter had also hosted a toy drive and a San Diego Padres game during the year.
