Founders of Dolores Chili

AUGUSTINE L. MUÑOZ

1942-1998
Co-Founder

As one of the founders of Dolores Canning Co., Inc., Augustine Muñoz  was a driving force in building the company into what it is today.  Augustine “Augie” was known to many in the industry and in local political circles.  Augie was a generous supporter of local law enforcement, including the California Highway Patrol.  Along with his brothers Steve & Frank, Augie led the company for nearly 40 years.  Sadly Augie was diagnosed with a rare form of Pancreatic Cancer in April 1998 and lost his brief battle after only 5 weeks.  Following his passing, a non-profit organization was founded to provide research funds in Augie’s name.  The Augustine L. Muñoz Cancer Research Fund hosts the annual Augie Muñoz Memorial Golf Tournament.  Proceeds are donated in Augie’s name to the USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center in Los Angeles.  To date over $300,000 has been donated to provide doctors and researchers valuable tools to find early methods of detection for Pancreatic Cancer.  For more information please see https://www.augiemunoz.org
