The Carlsbad Educational Foundation (CEF) recently held its 15th Annual Golf Classic at The Crossings at Carlsbad. The event was a fun-filled day on the links with unique contests, interactive tee boxes, and friendly competition that raised $93,000 to benefit the schools in the Carlsbad Unified School District by helping to fund innovative science, music, and educational programs for students. A team of parents from Aviara Oaks Elementary School, led by Pat Rushing, took first place in the Golden Club School Competition, the Straight Line General Contractors team took first place overall, and a special 15th place prize went to the Cultured Stone by Boral team. The Trasks, a local Carlsbad family, won a one-week Kauai vacation with airfare, car rental, and an excursion for the whole family! For more information on the Golf Classic or CEF visit
