The Club would like to extend a huge thank you to our Santa to the Sea Charity Challenge team captains: Supervisor John Zaragoza, Steve Kinney, who recently retired from EDCO; Rigo Vargas, Director of Ventura County Health Department, Vanessa Hale, Rachelle Dean, Mayra Rincon and Edith Medrano. These devoted volunteers worked for months to help raise funds for our Club as part of the Charity Challenge component of the race. BGCOP was one of five designated charities chosen to participate in the Challenge.

 

A big thank you is also due to Mike Barber. He is the visionary behind the Santa to the Sea race who has worked tirelessly to make it a well-organized and fun event that brings community pride and gives back through the Charity Challenge, donates toys given to needy children in Oxnard, and $500 scholarships to local high school students and adults, in partnership with the Oxnard College Foundation.

 

While we don’t yet know if BGCOP won the Charity Challenge by raising the most money of all the nonprofits that participated, last year we raised $3,200. We know that this year so far we have raised even more to benefit the over 9,000 youth we serve at the Club.
