Chumash Charity Golf Classic Raises $105,000 for 3 Local Nonprofits

The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians Foundation held another successful charity golf tournament this year, raising $105,000 to be distributed evenly among three well-deserving nonprofits — Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Santa Barbara County, the Dream Foundation and the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation.

The ninth annual Chumash Charity Golf Classic, which was held in August, included a one-day tournament at Alisal River Course, a live auction conducted by local celebrity Andrew Firestone, a silent auction and a raffle, with all of the proceeds going to the three nonprofits. On Tuesday, the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians Foundation officially announced that the nonprofits receive $35,000 apiece from the proceeds.
