Thank you to everyone who participated in the 28th Annual Fostering Hope Golf Classic!
On May 17, 2021, golfers showed their support for children in San Diego County foster care by teeing off in the 28th Annual Fostering Hope Golf Classic. The event, hosted at a private club in La Jolla, raised more than $180,000 for Voices for Children's Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program. Thank you to all who competed in the tournament, and a special thanks to event chairs Rolf Benirschke, Dave Bialis, Bill Sailer, Katie Sullivan, and Dale Yahnke.
A legacy of supporting youth in foster care
In 1993, CASA volunteer Jack Harrison organized the Fostering Hope golf tournament to marry his two passions: making an impact in the lives of children in San Diego's foster care system and golfing with his friends. As a CASA, Jack worked with eight children in the dependency court system. Although his cases were often the most difficult, he took on each one with compassion and enthusiasm. Jack began serving on Voices for Children's Board of Directors in 1993 and was slated to be Chair in 1996, the year he passed away.
