The Santa Barbara Association of Realtors 2019 Annual Golf Tournament raised $46,500 to benefit Angels Foster Care of Santa Barbara.
Angels Foster Care is a nonprofit organization that places infants and toddlers in loving homes throughout Santa Barbara County. Founded in 2006 by Meichelle Arntz, Angels Foster Care has placed more than 230 infants and toddlers in stable, loving foster homes so far.
The Santa Barbara Association of Realtors has a rich history of philanthropic work. Realtors understand the importance of giving back and have topped the charts as the most generous industry in America.
According to a National Association of Realtors survey, 82 percent of Realtors participate in charitable giving; that’s 25.4 percent more than than the national average.
“The findings in this report highlight what we’ve known all along — that Realtors go above and beyond to serve their neighbors,” John Smaby, National Association of Realtors president, said in a prepared statement. “Realtors across the country not only work to help people achieve the American dream, but they also work hard to make a difference in our communities.”
I’d like to personally thank all those who contributed in service or by donation. It is heartwarming knowing these funds are going to such an important cause.
