Five Acres Announces 30th Annual Golf Classic & Mad for Plaid Par-Tee
Event will raise critical funds for local children and families

[Altadena, Calif] August 14, 2017 – Five Acres, San Gabriel Valley’s oldest nonprofit, will celebrate its 30th Annual Golf Classic and Mad for Plaid Par-Tee on September 18, 2017 at a private golf club in Pasadena. The event will raise critical funds to support children and families in Los Angeles and will also recognize past chairs for their contribution to Five Acres’ mission.

Following the 18-hole golf tournament, guests are invited to don their finest plaid for Scottish-themed Mad for Plaid Par-Tee. The evening will include cocktails in the “Tartan Tavern” along with dinner, dancing and live entertainment. Sensational auction items include an 8-day Viking Cruises river cruise, helicopter ride and priceless guitar autographed by Maroon 5.

To honor 30-years of community support, a special honorary committee of former chairs will receive special recognition.

“Our past chairs have been champions for Five Acres’ mission to help kids and families thrive, setting examples for others to join the cause,” said Bolton & Company’s Brad Reaume, Title Sponsor and former Five Acres golf chair. “The 30th golf classic anniversary is the ideal opportunity to honor that work and inspire future leaders.”

2017 Summer Appeal Banner

For some of our kids, Five Acres is the only safe place they have. Due to neglect, abuse or financial hardship many have not experienced the everyday joys we take for granted — like going to the movies, shopping, or seeing the ocean. Providing them with summer fun creates a sense of belonging and normalcy in their lives.

2017 Summer Appeal Sun with Quotes

At Five Acres, we’ve been busy creating all kinds of therapeutic programs to keep our kids engaged, challenged and fulfilled this summer. From sporting activities to Dodger games to simple shopping outings, a small gift from you can restore a sense of normalcy to the lives of FiveFive Acres Descanso Gardens Field Trip Acres’ children in residence.

[Altadena, Calif] – Five Acres has received a $1 million dollar gift from the Helen and Will Webster Foundation to improve and enhance all eight of the residential cottages located on the organization’s main campus in Altadena. The gift has been made in honor of Helen Webster, who passed away in February 2017.

This extremely generous contribution follows two gifts made by the family foundation in 2016, which were designated to help install keyless access on all of the main campus perimeter doors and replace the hallway carpets and flooring in the residential cottages.

“We are honored and greatly appreciative of the Helen and Will Webster Foundation for their wonderful generosity and concern for the children living at Five Acres. Transformative gifts like these truly make it possible to provide the best services to our clients for many years to come,” said Chanel Boutakidis, Five Acres Chief Executive Officer.

The Helen Webster Cottage Care Project will support critical improvements to the comfort and safety of Five Acres’ residential cottages, helping children heal and thrive. The project will begin in 2017 and is set to be completed in 2018, which also marks Five Acres’ 130th Anniversary. The residential cottages house approximately 80 children, ages 6-14, on the Five Acres campus. The residential treatment program provides intensive, temporary out-of-home care and therapeutic services for children and their families, as well as transitional shelter care for girls with a focus on sibling sets.

The Helen Webster Cottage Care Project will enhance the well-being and care of the children living at Five Acres who are working towards reunification with their biological families or foster care or adoption placements.

“As a fellow Five Acres supporter, we are so appreciative of and grateful for Rich Webster and his family for providing needed cottage improvements to ensure the safety and comfort of children in residential treatment,” said longtime benefactor and former Board Chair Andrew Crowell. “Thank you to Rich and the Webster Family Foundation for being advocates and supporters of the children of Five Acres, both now and for years to come.”

“Helping vulnerable children and families in crisis is very important to my entire family,” shared Rich Webster, speaking on behalf of the Helen and Will Webster Foundation. “This gift honors my parents’ vision and heart for children, and will be a lasting and meaningful expression of my mother’s legacy. We hope our support brings hope and healing to the children living at Five Acres during this transitional time in their lives.”
