Golfing for a Cause
The Toby Wells Foundation will hold its 18th Annual Toby Wells & Craig Castaneda Golf Classic on June 14 at the Barona Creek Golf Club in Lakeside. This year’s theme is Route 66. The tournament began shortly after the foundation’s establishment, when the Wells family purchased a 300-acre ranch called Blue Apple Ranch. The ranch is populated with several types of rescued animals who are cared for by disenfranchised and disabled children.
Proceeds from the tournament will go to funding a one-day, outdoor afternoon of fun for 250 local foster youth through the nonprofit Voices for Children, field trips for children of military households through the Armed Services YMCA, a work-readiness internship for foster youth at San Pasqual Academy and at-risk youth from Abraxas High School and Warner Springs High School, a holiday shopping spree for Polinsky Children’s Center and the Armed Services YMCA whereby each child receives a $200 gift card to WalMart, and assistance in caring for Blue Apple Ranch’s rescued animals.
