In 2012, my husband, Ricky Barnes, and I started the Ricky & Suzanne Banes Foundation with the mission of promoting the physical and mental wellbeing of children. We felt strongly about giving back to the community in which we both grew up. We held our inaugural pro-am golf tournament at Stockton Golf and Country Club in October, 2012.
The success of this event has allowed us to donate close to $400,000 in our first four years to The First Tee of San Joaquin, ONE TLC (the school of the homeless), the Morgan Amelia Foundation and other worthy causes benefiting children in San Joaquin County. In addition, equipment has been donated to local schools to promote an active lifestyle for children.
