The Bob and Barbara White Invitational event is celebrating it's 11th year. We have come a long way from our first event that was held at our school's parking lot. The very first year we raised $12,000 and we thought how in the world could we ever match that amount. The next year we doubled that amount and raised $24,000. Last year we donated $140,000 to Royal Family Kids. Our event has grown because of the efforts of so many. Our community has worked together and as a result of this and answered prayers we have exceeded our wildest dreams.
We are excited about our 2016 Invitational weekend. We will kick off the weekend on March 18 with the banquet. Every year it is a sell-out so get your tickets early. This year we will the Ed Parker's American Kenpo Dream Team, led by Paul Dye. Our guest speaker is Matt Page, also known as Master Ken
Saturday will be a full day, beginning with seminars at 9 am. We will have 5 seminars taught by Kenpo Legends, John Sepulveda, Eddie Downey, Graham Lelliott, Bobby Lawrence, Paul Dye, and Ron Sanchez. Having these fine martial artists teaching under one roof is something you won't want to miss.
Sunday launches our tournament at Edison High School in Huntington Beach California. We will again have a free raffle for our competitors. They have the opportunity to win 3 skate board or 3 bicycles.
The result of this tournament weekend has reaped many rewards. Our martial arts community has grown closer with a common desire to help others, the children who compete receive a great swag bag as well as the lesson that they are doing something to help others, and the children of Royal Families have a camp to attend that provides them unconditional kindness, and a week of fun.
Thank you to all who support in so many different ways.
