On November 14, 2017, a check for $23,000 was presented to Samaritan House CEO Bart Charlow and City of Belmont Council Member and Samaritan House Board Member Davina Hurt from the San Carlos Tennis Club. Our deep thanks to the San Carlos Tennis Club and one of its members, who wishes to remain anonymous, for this generous donation! The SCTC hosted a Charity Drive and Samaritan House was fortunate to be chosen as the beneficiary. The check presentation took place at Belmont City Hall and was attended by San Carlos Tennis Club President John Farcich, Incoming President Susan Gibson, Treasurer Roger Van Cleve and Board Member Tami Adachi.
“We selected Samaritan House because of its focus on the community of San Mateo County and its many programs that benefit those in need.” -John Farcich, President.
The SCTC was founded in 1975 as a non-profit entirely run by volunteers. With over 600 members, they play at courts in San Carlos, Belmont and Redwood City. The SCTC was named Best Community-Based Tennis Organization in Northern California by USTA/NorCal in 2013.
This generous donation assists us as we continue our mission of helping our neighbors in need. Thank you, San Carlos Tennis Club!
