SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The UCSB women's basketball team held its ninth annual golf tournament at Sandpiper Golf Course on May 20 and following the event unveiled a project that will completely revamp the locker rooms, team room, media room, and Founders Room at the Thunderdome.
The high-level sponsors of the successful event were Sunsweet and the Perio Implant Health Professionals along with VIDA Wealth Partners, Bobbi and David Giorgi, Pet Sitters of Santa Barbara and Pivot Independent Financial. The Ramada Limited held its annual Putting Contest, which was won by former NBA star Mark Aguirre, whose daughter, Angelei Aguirre, is on the women's basketball team.
Steve Wendt, who is the voice of the women's basketball team and the host of Talk'n Gauchos and the play-by-play broadcaster of the UCSB baseball team, served as the emcee.
The event, which was held at the picturesque Sandpiper Golf Course, was well-attended and helped kick off the campaign to refurbish parts of the Thunderdome to make both the men's and women's basketball teams and the women's volleyball team more successful than ever before.
