2016 Golf Tournament
The 7th Annual Charity Golf Tournament!
The Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS® 7th Annual Charity Golf Tournament exceeded expectations by raising $57,000 to benefit Sarah House. The amount surpasses last year’s tournament total of $38,000 donated to Katie’s Fund.
The 2016 Golf Tournament benefiting Sarah House provided a great opportunity to channel the resources and community reach of the SBAOR. “To be able to raise $57,000 dollars is fantastic. Especially when it was such a fun way to do It.” commented Alec Bruice, president of SBAOR. Sarah House offers end-of-life care for low income and homeless men and women of the Santa Barbara Community. The non-profit continues its original mission by providing for men and women with HIV/AIDS as well. Founded in 1989 by Alice Heath, Sarah House has continued to touch the lives of many Santa Barbara residents through “extraordinary kindness.”
