The Sherwood Country Club Charitable Foundation’s annual fundraising event raised funds to support programs that address the educational, medical, nutrition, and safety needs of children and families in their community.

Westlake Village, CA, May 24, 2023 – Sherwood Cares, the charitable foundation associated with Sherwood Country Club, announces today that they raised $400,000 during their annual fundraising event. The event was hosted on Monday, May 22, 2023, and featured a day of memorable golf on the championship Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, robust sponsor support, exciting team and opportunity board prizes, and the second annual outdoor Music Festival. 

The Music Festival featured many renowned local musicians including Larry Antonino of Pablo Cruise, vocalist Amy May, the Soul Savages, and the legendary Robby Krieger of The Doors. Held on the beautifully manicured croquet lawn, the Music Festival was open to anyone in the community.  The annual event created awareness about the work of the Foundation and facilitated donations to support 59 local charitable organizations. More than 300 guests attended.

The event was supported by Polacheck’s Jewelers as the Presenting Sponsor, along with other sponsors including Amerihome Mortgage, Morgan Stanley, Bessolo Haworth, Real Estate Tesoro and BG Law Group among many others.

“We are thrilled to share that we’ve raised record-high proceeds from our annual golf event this year” stated George Carney, President of Sherwood Cares. Bob Jacobs, Sherwood member and the event’s Chair continued, “the passion and dedication of the Sherwood Country Club membership and our partners is certainly reflected in the success of this event that will help our community tremendously.” 

Sherwood Cares just concluded a grant cycle last month where they donated nearly $600,000 to local nonprofits. The funds raised during the golf event will be allocated to local nonprofit organizations in the next grant cycle which opens July 1, 2023 and closes August 31, 2023.
