2015 Don Whittier Golf Tournament Exceeded Fundraising Goal

By Camp Whittier

April 10th, 2015 was the date of the Annual Don Whittier Golf Tournament, hosted at the River Course at the Alisal in Solvang, CA.  This year's event was a success thanks to the many volunteers, donors, and players who supported our efforts to raise funds for the United Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County.

With the help of our community partners we were able to exceed last year's fundraising amount by more than $1000.  All funds go to supporting the programs offered by our organization which help provide structured and educational after-school care and extra-curricular activities to children in our community.  Each year, children from the UBGC of Santa Barbara County enjoy time at Camp Whittier building relationships and confidence as they participate in outdoor education, team-building exercises, and other camp programs.  This spring, Camp Whittier was pleased to host the first-ever UBGC Spring Break Camp and we are looking forward to seeing our Club kids at camp again in July.

We would like to especially thank the following organizations which contributed to the golf tournament:

The Ann Jackson Family Foundation

Union Bank: The Private Bank

Santa Barbara Community Bank

We also want to thank all of the individuals who volunteered their time to organize this event by being a part of our Golf Tournament Committee:

Melissa Gough

Eloy Ortega

Rich Ridgway

Ken Pettit

John Escalera

Dave Mead

Thank you again to everyone who gave of their time or resources to support this event.
