Rocklin-based Sleep Train Mattress Centers said its seventh annual Charity Golf Classic raised a record $650,000 to provide financial assistance to current and former foster youth for educational scholarships and extracurricular activities.
Extracurricular activities include summer camps, sports, music lessons and assistance gaining independent living skills. To date, Sleep Trains Charity Golf Classic has raised more than $2.6 million. The latest edition was held last week at Lincoln Hills Golf Club.
Event proceeds will go to West Coast foster youth agencies supporting the following programs: Fostering Scholars-Seattle University, Foster Family Care Network, Rosevilles PRIDE Industries, San Pasqual Academy, Youth Homes Inc. and the John Burton Foundation.
Sleep Train is currently hosting its Dollar Drive for Foster Kids through Nov. 3. It funds healthy, educational activities for California foster youth. Donations for that effort can be made at any Sleep Train store or at www.sleeptrain.com.
