Movegreen Sponsors Local Teachers Fund in 1st Annual Golf Tournament

On Friday October 21st, 2011, Movegreen, a local, green moving company in Santa Barbara successfully raised nearly $47,000.00 to give back to the community of Santa Barbara in conjunction with the Teacher’s Fund.


The event took place at Glen Annie Golf Club and hosted 144 golfers and over 250 people who attended afternoon spa treatments and an evening cocktail party. All proceeds and donations were given to the Teacher’s Fund to support local teachers with the materials they need to educate their students. The Teacher’s Fund was created in 2002 when Village Properties realized that our teachers were spending money out of their own pockets to bring better quality education for our students. Teachers simply go to the website, www.teachersfund.org and apply for what they need in their classroom.

Strategically named “Futures Golf Tournament,” Movegreen has chosen to directly sow into the lives and futures of the next generation of Santa Barbara. Highlights from the event included a Silent Auction featuring gifts provided by hundreds of local businesses and organizations including weekend get-a-ways as well as spa and restaurant packages. Our primary sponsor for the Golf Tournament was Deckers Outdoor Corporation. During the golf tournament there were several hole contests with prizes including a BMW, Ford F-150 and $10,000 respectively. The afternoon commenced with wine tasting and entertainment at the gaming tables as the guests took their turns being pampered with mini manicures, pedicures and massages available to all. The Cocktail party that followed provided guests with formal hors d’oeuvres along with beer, wine and top shelf cocktails. One participant captured the essence of the day as he commented how he has “played in golf tournaments like this for 15 years and this one was the best by far!” All of the events together wrapped up a day of success not only in providing a great time for all attendees but more importantly, in giving back to the community of Santa Barbara. Movegreen is grateful for the support of all the local sponsors who helped make this event possible.
