Michael Harrah, President & Chief Executive Officer of Caribou Industries, is the official “Title Sponsor” for our 2018 KidWorks Classic Golf Tournament. We have a few other “titles” for Mike, too: Generous supporter. Champion of children and youth. Visionary Leader.
This is the second year in a row that Mike and his company have been the Title Sponsor, which is the highest level of support for the tournament. Caribou “operates 45 world class companies known for premier real estate, executive aviation, five-star restaurants, hotel resorts and entertainment venues in Arizona, California, Hawaii and Nevada.”
Mike says it best: “I am honored to work closely with organizations who share my vision for transforming the heart of Orange County. That is why I have partnered with KidWorks. They are transforming our community by creating bright futures for its youth and their families."
He adds: “The United States Census Bureau’s latest figures from 2010 show that a little over 30% of the City of Santa Ana’s population is 18-years-old or younger. That means we have a tremendous charter to prepare these future leaders to serve their community with time, talent and resources. That preparation starts now.”
David Benavides, KidWorks’ CEO and Executive Director, says the golf classic is one of Orange County’s premier non-profit fundraising events because of supporters like Mike.
“With a track record of over 23 years in Santa Ana, Mike and Caribou have owned and operated over 5 million square feet of commercial office space in the city,” David says. “Mike believes in Santa Ana and is a leader. He’s building our city’s future as a developer, and just as importantly, he’s also building our city’s future by investing in our children and youth,”
This year, the KidWorks Classic Golf Tournament introduces a $25,000 matching gift opportunity that has the potential of raising $50,000 in support of our college success initiative.
You don’t have to wait until tournament day on May 3 at the Pelican Hill Golf Course in Newport Beach to make sure we raise the $25,000 portion of the match.
