Teacher’s Fund Golf Tournament Raises $93,500 in Green for Student Enrichment

Money will go to local educators for in-class materials as well as for activities outside the classroom in Santa Barbara County Schools.

The 6th Annual Teacher’s Fund Golf Tournament and Party Extravaganza, held Oct. 7, raised $93,500 to fund education enrichment supplies and activities for Santa Barbara County students, the organizers reported.
The event, a Santa Barbara tradition, took place at the Glen Annie Golf Course and included a day of golf, followed by a party. Event co-chairs this year were Renee Grubb, co-owner of Village Properties, and Leanne Wood, a real estate agent in Village Properties’ Montecito office.
All money raised goes to Teacher’s Fund, created in 2002 by Renee Grubb and Ed Edick as a way to give back to the community they serve.

The Teacher’s Fund is a nonprofit that raises money for Santa Barbara-area teachers so they may enrich the classroom experience with added supplies, materials and equipment in addition to outside classroom activities not covered by school funds.

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.
