CBT Celebrates Milestone: Over $500K Raised Over the Decades
For twenty years the CBT Annual Charity Golf Classic has raised critical funds for Pacific Clinics' privately funded Hollygrove Programs. This year's tournament's proceeds of $43,000 and counting, surpass past tournaments, showing the commitment among the players and sponsors to supporting children and families in crisis. Since its inception, the golf classic has raised more than $500,000 to help children and families bridge the academic divide, receive support with mental and behavioral health, and put them on the path to long-term success.
For the past 20 years, founder, CEO, and Pacific Clinics' Board of Governors member, Kelly Ireland, along with the team at CBT have hosted and produced CBT's Annual Charity Golf Classic at the one-of-kind Pelican Hill Golf Course in Newport Beach. All proceeds from the annual event go directly to help children in need in Los Angeles County.
Thank you to our clients, partners, friends, and family for making all this possible!
“I could not imagine 20 years ago that this tournament would turn into the incredibly successful event that it has for not only our customers, partners and friends (the golfers), but the funding of the critical programs at Pacific Clinics” commented Kelly Ireland. “It started as my personal journey after being introduced to Hollygrove in early 2000. It quickly became the most important event of the year for everyone at CBT and I’m beyond proud of the job done to make it such a great success year after year.”
Kelly Ireland, Founder, CEO and CTO for CBT
"Thank you, CBT, for your commitment and partnership for over 20 years to making a daily difference in the lives of vulnerable and often underserved children in Los Angeles County. Events such as this annual golf tournament enable to us to provide consistent and individualized support to our children and families supported by the Hollygrove Programs. Your participation in this tournament gives hope for brighter days ahead".
Alison Raitt, Senior Director of Fund Development for Pacific Clinics for the Los Angeles Region
Hollygrove Programs are privately funded services that enhance community wellness in the Los Angeles community. These programs are designed to strengthen both children and their parents by enriching their knowledge, supporting skill development, and building emotional bonds that last a lifetime. The innovative services extend the reach of their publicly funded programs, seek to address the needs of the family before problems take hold, and are offered at no charge.
Hollygrove Programs include a 5-day per week therapeutic program for children ages 6 to 12. It focuses on understanding and addressing the underlying social and emotional needs of a child struggling academically in school. This allows children to learn academic concepts through the development of social and communication skills, artistic expression, movement, and sports. In collaboration with teacher and parents, Hollygrove Programs connects the child and family to further supports in the school and community which, when needed, includes mental health services.
