Semtech’s Annual Golf Tournament Raised Over $100,000 for Family Support Services
Tournament proceeds will be donated to Ventura County charities Interface Children & Family Services, and Kids & Families Together
CAMARILLO, Calif., June 26, 2019 ― Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, hosted its seventh annual charity golf tournament on June 14 at Los Robles Golf Course in Thousand Oaks, Calif., raising over $108,000 in donations for Interface Children & Family Services (Interface) and Kids & Families Together, two comprehensive non-profit social services agencies based in Ventura County.
“Interface is grateful for Semtech’s continued support of our mission to create a safer and healthier Ventura County for its families and communities,” said Erik Sternad, Executive Director of Interface Children & Family Services. “The generous donations from Semtech, its employees and partners, significantly enhance Interface’s ability to respond to calls for help and provide quality care for those most at-risk in our community.”
As a critical safety net for children and families, Interface provides 24 distinct programs across six core program areas including mental health and trauma treatment, domestic violence and child abuse prevention, youth crisis intervention, human trafficking, and reentry services. Following the 2017 Thomas Fire and Montecito Mudslides, Interface responded to 1,800 local calls for evacuation, shelter and missing persons’ services, saving many lives.
Kids & Families Together (K&FT) is a nonprofit that has been serving foster, adoptive, kinship, and birth families throughout Ventura County since 2000. The organization works with children who have experienced trauma, abuse, neglect, loss, and multiple placements. In addition, K&FT also work with caregivers who need specialized education, support, and strategies to help raise safe, healthy, nurtured children that thrive.
“Proceeds from this year’s tournament will support Kids & Families Together to continue to provide quality care and support for the vulnerable youth in our community,” said Sharon Cromartie at Kids & Families Together. “Successful parenting takes dedication and hard work. It is only through assistance from philanthropic leaders like Semtech that we are able to bring the best guidance and resources to our foster, kinship, and adoptive families.”
A yearly highlight in the Ventura County area, Semtech’s Charity Golf Tournament hosts employees, families and friends for a full day of fundraising activities, golfing, raffles and an awards dinner with a silent auction.
“As Semtech has been a member of the Ventura County community for 60 years, it is important for us to give back and be a leader in creating a better tomorrow for those in our community,” said Mohan Maheswaran, Chief Executive Officer at Semtech. “Our annual charity golf tournament is a great way for our employees and their friends and family to show their appreciation and raise funds for local charities.”
Headquartered in Camarillo, Semtech is dedicated to actively working with the community to support local charities and not-for-profit programs. To date, Semtech’s Charity Golf Tournament has raised approximately $400,000 for a number of Ventura County organizations.
