Camarillo, CA – The 27th Annual Care for Kids Golf Classic will take place on Monday, September 9th at Spanish Hills Country Club. 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. This year’s tournament, hosted by the Rotary Clubs of Camarillo, will be honoring Sue and Ken Eastman, longtime tournament supporters and Camarillo Rotarians. Kevin Nunn and Kevin Estes return to co-chair the tournament along with Title Sponsor Advanced Motion Controls. The Care for Kids Golf Classic is one of Ventura County’s longest running charity golf tournaments and has raised significant funds for Casa Pacifica and other local charities.
Rotarian and tournament co-chair Kevin Nunn said, “I am a dedicated member of the Camarillo Rotary and we continue to do the Care for Kids Golf Classic because we believe in Casa Pacifica and everything they do to continuously help youth in our community – they teach youth how to improve their lives emotionally, mentally, and physically. By helping our youth today, we’re creating a better place for the future.”
The “Texas Scramble” style tournament will crown winners in gross and low-net flights. 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 next year’s award-winning 27th Annual Casa Pacifica Angels Wine, Food & Brew Festival on June 7th, 2020. Plenty of food and drinks throughout the course – margaritas, hot dogs, shaved ice, and draft beer, will keep players golfing through the afternoon in high spirits. Lunch will be provided by The 2686 Kitchen. A cocktail reception and awards dinner follow the tournament round and feature raffle prize opportunities and a live auction. Don’t golf? You can still attend the dinner and enjoy a fabulous meal along with tempting live and silent auction items. All proceeds from the tournament and auction benefit Casa Pacifica and other local charities.
