TBCF Celebrates 10 Years!

The great success of The Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation Ball "Celebrating 10 Years" held at Bacara Resort & Spa on October 6th could not have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors, underwriters, attendees, event co-chairs, committee, and our board of directors.


More than $330,00 was raised to support our efforts to provide financial and emotional support to families living in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo. Involvement such as yours is essential to TBCF's continued success and growth of the Foundation, and truly makes a difference in the lives of the children we serve.
