CBT will be hosting their 15th Annual Charity Golf Classic in Newport Beach, CA in November. This long tradition has brought over $200,000 for the worthy charity, Uplift Family Services at Hollygrove (formerly known as EMQ FamiliesFirst). Through continued support from our outstanding donors like HPE, Aruba, HP, Arrow, Van Cline & Associates, Intel and many more — last year alone we were able to raise $30,000 for the Los Angeles Region that helps the most vulnerable children and families in the Metro and South Los Angeles communities! The tournament sells out each year consisting of commercial and government clients, IT professionals, CBT partners, Uplift Family Services leadership, and local business owners.
As Founder and CEO of CBT, Kelly Ireland began a love for Hollygrove over 15 years ago when she spent time with the children of the charity at a local lake. The thought that the kids had never been in the water before sparked a desire to help the charity in a larger way. Fast forward 15 years later and CBT is now a consistent donor for Uplift Family Services. Kelly sits on the Board of Directors at Hollygrove and has been continually sponsoring her times and funding to support the Norma Jean Gala. CBT is honored to host such an event to spread the word of the great work Uplift Family Services is doing.
Uplift Family Services help over 30,000 children and family members recover from trauma—such as abuse, severe neglect and poverty—each year. We have five regional offices covering over 30 counties in California. For 127 years, the Hollygrove location in Los Angeles has been dedicated to helping children and families achieve permanency and well-being. Hollygrove offers many different types of services including Camp Hollygrove, Endless Summer, Family Search and Engagement, Parent Institute and many more. The proceeds from this annual tournament support these services in particular.
CBT’s 15th Annual Charity Classic will be held at Pelican Hill Golf Resort in November 2018. As an invitation-only tournament, we look forward to the opportunity of supporting the families and children of Uplift Family Services. Thank you to all of our sponsors for your support at this year’s tournament!
