Wow! That is all we can say to our amazing sponsors, donors, supporters, and participants!

We asked you guys for patience and understanding in these uncertain times, and not only did you do that, but you blew us out of the water with your generosity!

Your contributions to The David Marcus Thumbs Up Scholarship Foundation* raised over....


      $7000  towards scholarship funds!


On behalf of our entire organization, thank you all! This would not be possible without each and every one of you!


1st Annual Golf


Quarantine Yardsale

June 12-13, 2020


What can we say except - Bakersfield, you never fail us! Our organization threw together an impromptu yardsale in hopes to cut short our losses from postponing the 1st Annual Golf Invitational due to COVID-19.

We asked for your help and you guys stepped up! Bakersfield, you helped us raise over $4,800 for scholarships!

Not only did your donations benefit the David Marcus Thumbs Up Scholarship Foundation, but items not sold were subsequently donated to the Jamison Children's Center, Encore! Boutique, Junk-Atique Outlet Thrift Store, and local Boy Scouts of America!

Thank you, Bakersfield, for your continued donations and unwavering support! We appreciate you all!
