On November 7th, golfers teed off at the Barney & Barney Foundation’s 5th Annual Bay Area Golf Tournament at Sequoyah Country Club. With the support of our sponsors, players, and volunteers, the tournament proved to be our most successful one to date. Not only did we have the highest tournament turnout yet, but we also broke previous fundraising records. Click here to view photos from the event.

This year, the Foundation awarded a total of $70,000 to two inspiring Bay Area non-profit organizations: Junior Achievement of Northern California and Girls Inc. of Alameda County.

Junior Achievement of Northern California helps provide youth with the skills they need to succeed in adulthood. Participants learn about finding a job, starting a business, and managing money. Junior Achievement is dedicated to preparing our youth for their dream career and will use their grant to further fulfill their goal of building a better workforce of tomorrow.

Girls Inc. of Alameda County empowers girls to navigate gender, economic, and racial barriers to realize their full potential. Through a continuum of life-changing programs and counseling services, Girls Inc. inspires girls to be strong through healthy living, smart through academic engagement, and bold through leadership development. Girls Inc.’s grant will go towards their innovative educational approach, which combines local needs with research-based curricula and reaches over 10,000 girls and their families annually.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, players, and volunteers for making the 2016 Bay Area Tournament a success. We look forward to seeing you on the green again next year.
