The 2020 Bob and Barbara White Charitable Foundation event will be unlike any we have held. This will be our 15th year of raising funds for Royal Family Kids and our team is very proud of what we have been able to accomplish. Hundreds of abused and neglected children have received the opportunity to go to a camp where they are treated like royalty. RFK is a Christian based organization that helps change children’s lives and gives them hope and a positive environment. The RFK website is www.rfk.org
We have some of the most well respected and knowledgeable teachers presenting seminars on Saturday and Sunday. Ron Sanchez, Eddie Downey, John Sepulveda, John Conway, David Brock, and Paul Dye will conduct seminars for the Saturday classes.
Saturday night we will hold our banquet at the Costa Mesa Country Club. We will have dinner and entertainment as well as a live auction to help us raise funds. The banquet will start at 6:00PM
On Sunday in the past we have hosted a youth tournament. We have had participants coming from all over the world to compete. In some cases they might have 2 or 3 fights totaling 4 or 6 minutes. We want to give the best service possible so instead of a tournament we have an educational opportunity offering 1 hour classes with world champion teachers. We have Benny Urquidez, Michael Pombeiro. David Coppock, and Jim McClure presenting classes. Because our theme has always been children helping children there will not be an age limit for participants. All seminars will be held at our studio.
We have no paid employees and like we have for the last 15 years 100% of net profits will go to Royal Family Kids of Newport/Mesa.
Thank you all for your support,
Bob and Barbara White
