The 20th Annual EGBAR Foundation Golf Tournament
Joining Together to Benefit Deserving Charities
The 20th Annual EGBAR Foundation Golf Tournament
December 15, 2016

The 20th Annual EGBAR Foundation Golf Tournament, sponsored by Simple Green, provided people the opportunity to "take part in something overwhelmingly good," as one attendee so insightfully stated. With the help of all of the tournament sponsors and participants, the foundation succeeded in raising over $165,000 for this year's benefactors: The Gary Sinise Foundation, the Bolsa Chica Conservancy, and Amore for Dogs.

The benefactors met and even golfed with attendees, sharing firsthand the dramatic impact that their donations make. Proceeds from last year's golf tournament helped launch the Bolsa Chica Conservancy's Windows to our Wetlands program. Attendees toured the vehicle that the donated money went toward and helped retrofit. They viewed the tanks of sea creatures lining the walls of the bus and learned about how they can…Read More help protect the wetlands, much like the children in underserved communities are now able to thanks to the EGBAR Foundation.

Viviana Soldano FaBrizio, founder of Amore for Dogs, was also on hand to discuss the impact the tournament has on her charity. The organization focuses on providing ongoing support for shelter and rehabilitation centers for animals of all types across the globe.

The EGBAR Foundation's newest benefactor, The Gary Sinise Foundation, made perhaps the biggest impact at this year's tournament. Committed to providing resources to severely wounded veterans and their families, The Gary Sinise Foundation embodies the EGBAR spirit by working to improve not only returning heroes' health, but their positive outlook as well. There were tears of pride as attendees took to their feet to provide a standing ovation to two veterans' dinner speeches.

The EGBAR Foundation and Simple Green extend a wholehearted thank you to all who participated and contributed to the 20th Annual EGBAR Foundation Golf Tournament. This type of teamwork enables the foundation to move forward in its efforts to spread positive thinking and positive action, motivating people to make responsible decisions for themselves and the environment.

EGBAR, Simple Green, and the Gary Sinise Foundation
April 22, 2016

The EGBAR Foundation kicked off 2016 at the Invincible Spirit Festival, hosted by The Gary Sinise Foundation, in San Diego. The Gary Sinise Foundation hosts a number of these daylong festivals to celebrate the courage of the men and women who have sacrificed for our country, as well as their families and caregivers, to serve as reminders of hope and positivity along the road to recovery.

This festival brought a fair-like atmosphere to the Naval Medical Center, where attendees experienced a live Lt. Dan Band concert, enjoyed cookout food prepared by Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine, and shared in their gratitude for the sacrifices made by wounded service members. The Simple Green team was in full-force at the medical center, handing out samples, bags, and coupons, h…Read Moreosting live giveaways, and lining up plenty of photo ops with Egbar.

The EGBAR Foundation, along with Simple Green, was eager to support the Gary Sinise Foundation at this heart-warming event, as Simple Green cleaning products became successful largely because the United States Armed Services has embraced it for cleaning vehicles, equipment, clothing, barracks and more all over the world.

Since 1975, the EGBAR Foundation has focused on bringing change to communities by teaming with other heartfelt organizations that have a positive influence on our environment, our children, and our families. Moving forward, the EGBAR Foundation is proud to give its full support, matched by funds from Simple Green, to the Gary Sinise Foundation.

Simple Green Helps Support Bolsa Chica Conservancy's New Education Initiative
April 8, 2016

Simple Green's EGBAR Foundation named the Bolsa Chica Conservancy as its preferred benefactor for its 19th Annual Golf Tournament. As a result of the tournament, the Foundation was able to significantly help the Conservancy launch a long awaited new program that will be critical to their mission of educating youth in wetland science, watersheds, coastal ecology and environmental sustainability.

Schools often find difficulty in securing the resources needed to bring students to the wetlands. Bolsa Chica Conservancy's new Windows to Our Wetlands or "WOW" program is a traveling STEM-based educational program that brings the experience to the school directly.

Together with Simple Green, AES, got plovers, the Metropolitan Water …Read MoreDistrict, and individual supporters who participated in the Crowdrise campaign, the Bolsa Chica Conservancy has repurposed a donated Simple Green vehicle into a traveling educational center filled with interactive exhibits and teaching tools aimed at increasing science literacy and awareness of conservation issues.

The new program helps to eliminate the financial burdens and time restrictions that prevent students from being able to participate and opens up the program to numerous schools, clubs and organizations that otherwise would never have been able to experience it.

The launch of the WOW program, as well as the unveiling of the refurbished Simple Green van, will take place on April 22 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Bolsa Chica Conservancy (3842 Warner Avenue Huntington Beach, CA 92649-4263). If you are in the area, feel free to join the Bolsa Chica Conservancy as they embark on their new environmental education endeavor.

"There is a very collegiate atmosphere at this tournament," said Bruce FaBrizio, inventor and founder of Simple Green. "Eighty-five-year-old people who have played since they were 12 are coming to this event as well. It's a family friendly festival."

Handball is one of the oldest sports in the world, dating back to 1500-2000 B.C. and is still incredibly popular today. Individuals or teams of two hit a small rubber ball against a wall with their hands. Similar to tennis, the objective is to make it impossible for the opponent to return the ball. The sport is divided into three categories depending on the number of walls surrounding the players: one-wall, three-wall and four-wall handball.
