Santa Maria Elks Golf Committee Chair Hank Rickett presents a check of $1000.00 to Julia Puschek of The First Tee Central Coast.
The First Tee is an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. Through after school and in school programs, they help shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf. And it’s making a difference.
That is why the Santa Maria Elks Golf Committee has supported First Tee Central Coast for the last two years. Support like this enables First Tee Central Coast to provide financial aid to 60% of the boys and girls participating in their programs at 13 golf courses from Carpenteria to Morro Bay.
