SANTA BARBARA, CA - The 6th Annual Teacher’s Fund Golf Tournament and Party Extravaganza, held on Oct. 7, raised $93,500 to fund education enrichment supplies and activities for Santa Barbara County students, the organizers reported.
The annual Santa Barbara tradition took place at the Glen Annie Golf Course in Santa Barbara and included a day of golf, followed by a Party Extravaganza at 5 p.m. Party guests enjoyed music, food, wine tasting, blackjack and auctions. Event co-chairs this year were Renee Grubb, co-owner of Village Properties, and Leanne Wood, a real estate agent in Village Properties’ Montecito office.
All money raised goes to The Teacher’s Fund, created in 2002 by Renee Grubb and Ed Edick as a way to give back to the community they serve. The Teacher’s Fund is a non-profit that raises money for Santa Barbara-area teachers so they may enrich the classroom experience with added supplies, materials and equipment in addition to outside classroom activities not covered by school funds. To date, nearly $1.6 million (counting this year’s proceeds) has been donated to Santa Barbara County elementary, middle, and high school teachers in both public and private schools.
