sponsor shoutout

This Sponsor Shoutout is to the Encinitas Community and to our amazing Branch Board at our Griset Clubhouse in Encinitas. Local companies, community members and organizations helped us raise 
$40,000 in net proceeds that will enable us to sustain the services and programs we provide to the Encinitas Community.
Held on May 14th at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course, over 135 golfers took part the fun. Title sponsors DW Tower, Foresight Sports & Hay House Publishing led the way in exemplifying the supportive partnership the Encinitas Community has with BGC San Dieguito: what we affectionately call "Club Love".

We proudly recognize and give sincerest thanks for the commitment these companies/organizations have for the youth in our community.
