The Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS® 2019 Charity Golf Tournament raised $46,500 to benefit non-profit Angels Foster Care of Santa Barbara. The golf tournament, produced by the association’s all-volunteer events committee, is SBAOR’s largest annual fundraiser. 

The events committee organizes various social & philanthropic events throughout the year such as the Golf Tournament, Fiesta Kick-Off Party and Member Appreciation Party.

Through these efforts, SBAOR has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past four years to non-profits such as Domestic Violence Solutions, Angels Foster Care, Sarah House and Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table.

Each year, the committee nominates a local non-profit to be the recipient of the golf tournament proceeds. The committee solicits applicants each fall to determine the following year’s beneficiary. The committee takes pride in serving the local community by bringing awareness and financial support to local charities.

The Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS® thanks the events committee members for their ongoing dedication and work.
