"I can change the world, with my own two hands
Make a better place, with my own two hands
Make a kinder place, oh with my, oh with my own two hands
With my own, with my own two hands
With my own, with my own two hands" - Ben Harper

July 2021 Update

The initial months of 2021 still found our world, our country and our state struggling with COVID-19 virus.  The Gavin Gladding Foundation members continued Zoom meetings as we anxiously began the planning process for the 2nd Annual Gavin Gladding Foundation Golf Tournament. We would be ready to roll again if all was right with the world.


So, with great enthusiasm, we are announcing that it’s a go!  Following is information on how to sign up to play.  Foursomes are going quickly!  We expect a huge turnout again to honor Gavin and enable us to continue to fund college scholarships as well as adding support for River Campers now in two cities – Fresno and Firebaugh!  The Gavin Gladding Foundation will be listed as donor, a continuing testimony to keeping his legacy alive.
