Seacrest Foundation holds sports tournament to benefit its Resident Assistance Fund


The Seacrest Foundation held its Golf, Tennis, and Pickleball Day on Oct. 24 in Carlsbad. The event, called “Take a Swing for Seniors,” raised more than $160,000 to support the Resident Assistance Fund of Seacrest Village.

Seacrest Foundation hosted over 100 golfers and tennis and pickleball players at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort and Golf Club in Carlsbad. The event’s sponsor was the William Gumpert Foundation. The sports ended with a cocktail reception. Participants were served a variety of snacks and refreshments throughout the day, including a margarita station and beverages donated by Constellation Brands (via Crest Beverage) and Cutwater Spirits.

The all-day event started with a BBQ buffet lunch and included a raffle drawing with a $1,000 first prize, auctions and a “wine putt,” where guests paid $30 to putt toward bottles of wine valued from $30 to $100.

This year’s tournament committee was led by chair, Devin Chodorow, and included members Earl Altshuler, Cindy Bloch, Mary Epsten, Robert Haimsohn, Marty Ehrlich, and Larry Weitzen.
