Named posthumously after long-time MBREA member and golf tournament founder Don Brown, the annual charity event has raised more than $177,000 to date.
This year’s proceeds will again be donated to the parent/teacher associations at four local elementary schools: Pacific Beach Elementary, Crown Point Junior Music Academy, Barnard Asian Pacific Language Academy and Kate Sessions Elementary. The funds have provided much-needed assistance with the expense of student computers, art supplies, music equipment and tutoring support.
The MBREA is comprised of more than 250 real estate industry professionals, including sales agents and brokers, mortgage brokers, title and escrow company representatives, and other industry affiliates. “The majority of our members live and work in the Pacific Beach area. Links for Learning allows us the opportunity to give back to the community in which we earn our living,” said Rachael Kaiser, MBREA president.
The tournament is played as a four-person scramble and is open to the community and all skill levels. The afternoon ends with dinner at the clubhouse and raffle featuring prizes. Parents, teachers, school administrators, businesses and real estate professionals are all encouraged to participate, and non-golfers are welcome to join for the post-tournament dinner and festivities.
“The tournament is really an excuse to spend a fun day on the golf course with a bunch of great people,” said Kaiser. “The fact that we are benefiting our community at the same time is an added bonus.”
