The Camarillo Rotary Clubs’ Host 29th Annual Care for Kids Golf Classic Benefiting Casa Pacifica
Camarillo, CA – The 29th Annual Care for Kids Golf Classic will take place on Monday, July 26th at Spanish Hills Country Club in Camarillo. Limited spots available – to register or sponsor visit casapacifica.org. Funds raised benefit Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families and its programs serving foster and at-risk youth, along with other Rotary Foundation charities.
Out of an abundance of caution and the continued tournament success shown last year, tournament organizers will proceed with the modified the schedule of events, foregoing the formal cocktail hour and the traditional sit-down dinner following the round of golf – exchanging it for a take home dinner option, online silent auction, and handing out awards over Facebook live.
Non-golfers can support the tournament through browsing and bidding on their online silent auction at www.hope4kids.givesmart.com. The auction will be live Friday, July 23rd through Monday, July 26th at 5 PM.
This year’s tournament, hosted by the Rotary Clubs of Camarillo, will be honoring Felicia and Daniel Schoenewald of Advanced Motion Control, the tournament’s returning Title Sponsor. “Our community is important to us. Giving back is important to us. The kids need a nurturing hand and we want to be there side by side with Casa Pacifica,” said Daniel Schoenewald on why they give back.
Alongside returning Title Sponsor Advanced Motion Controls, other tournament sponsors include: Cocktail Reception Sponsor: Fence Factory; Benefactor: Real Estate Tesoro; Patrons: Coastal Embroidery, Ford of Ventura, Harrison Industries, Potts Dental, Store Safe, Trophies Etc., and Winters Financial Group; Friends: 8th Devil Distributing, Applebee’s, California Door and Hardware, Canteen Vending, Churchill & Valencia, Firestone Walker, Elise and Bill Kearney, Old Oaks Cigar Company, Opolo, McDonald’s, The Sleep Shoppe, and Valenzano Insurance Services.
The Care for Kids Golf Classic is one of Ventura County’s longest running charity golf tournaments and has raised more than $1.6 million for Casa Pacifica and other local charities during its 29-year run.
Tournament Co-chair Kevin Nunn commented on the importance of the tournament, “The Rotary Clubs of Camarillo look forward to hosting this tournament every year. Many of the players return year after year. We’re all here to support a great cause – the children and youth of Casa Pacifica and other local charities. To be able to give back and enjoy a fun day of golf is a win-win for everyone involved.”
The tournament will be a modified Texas Scramble format and will crown winners in gross and low-net flights via Facebook live immediately following the golfing. Several on-course competitions including longest drive and closest to the hole contests boast fabulous prizes – including cars and cash. Tournament favorite “Demolition Derby” pits golfers against each other – all putting at the same time for a position closest to the hole, the winner receives a coveted pair of tickets to the 29th Annual Casa Pacifica Angels Wine, Food & Brew Festival on June 5th, 2022. The tournament, known for its plentiful food and drinks sprinkled throughout the course – margaritas, shaved ice, and draft beer, will keep players happily golfing through the afternoon.
