The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara recently welcomed 100 golfers to Glen Annie Golf Course for a day of golfing for a good cause at the club’s 19th Annual Golf Tournament.

All tournament proceeds went to afterschool programs, tutoring, year-round sports, summer camp, and other opportunities for some 2,200 young people at the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara.

Twenty-five foursomes vied for first place and prizes, with Gordon McKay, Trevor Broesamle, Michael Bruce and Larry Good earning the lowest gross score, and Aaron Dowd, Joshua Webb, Chris Cyr and Louis Pisacane shooting a lowest net.

Mike Harrell scored scoring a hole-in-one on No. 11, taking home $1,000 worth of Yeti merchandise.

Kenny Foster, a club alumnus who learned to love golf by playing in the club’s Youth Golf Program, joined the event. Now 25, he is about to get his PGA Card.

Anthony Gomez, a club board member for nearly 24 years and has coordinated the tournament for 19 years, choked back tears when thanking the players for coming out and showing their support.

The club thanks tournament sponsors: Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, Berti, Spechler, Sarmiento, McKay & Co., Brown & Brown Insurance, Tim and Louise Casey, Daikin America, Helistrand, Montecito Bank & Trust.

Also, Northern Trust, Ramada Santa Barbara, Coast Cart, Santa Barbara Auto Group and the Towbes Group.

Thanks also goes to the Lampson Team at OnQ Financial for being a major sponsor for the first time this year.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
