Thank you Golfers, thank you Donors, thank you Volunteers.

With your support, energy and passion, 2018 has become the first year th
at our Annual Golf Tournament raised over 6 figures, reaching a grand total of $105,034.

And we couldn’t have done it without your help.


Picture the scene... As the sun rose over the serene, desert canyons of Poway, just as it has every spring for the past 18 years, golf got Shaktified!

Shakti Rising Staff and Volunteers swooped in on the Maderas Golf Course to bring our own special magic to the world of golf; the magic of community connections, of open hearts, of joy and healing and fun!

Birdies and Butterflies is a Golf Tournament that is not just about Golf. It is about remembering who we are to one another. About remembering that when you transform, so do I, that when I heal and grow, you do too.

And this year, our 18th, saw this transformation and healing in action. This year saw Golfers connecting with Apprentices about our shared need for community. It saw Donors connecting with Volunteers about what it means to show the world your heart in tangible, practical ways. And overall, it saw the goodness of humanity and our deepest desires to be there for one another, to witness each other being our best possible selves.

It’s all about Community...

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of our Volunteers, for their time on the day and for the countless hours that were spent creating and preparing all was needed to make sure that the day ran smoothly. We couldn’t hold this event every year without your support, and we hold with so much gratitude that you dedicate your time and energy and hold in your hearts the vision of Shakti Rising, the vision of interconnectedness, goodness and love.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to our Donors and Supporters. With your support, this year saw us running the Annual Golf Day with our lowest ever operating costs, meaning that we are able to direct 90 cents of every dollar raised on the day to the programs and areas within Shakti Rising where they will have the greatest impact and do the most good. We say it often, and its true: we couldn’t do this without you and we are so grateful.


Thank you, thank you, thank you to the best possible Golf Committee, for all of the ways that you showed up on the day, and all of the unseen ways that you worked your magic behind the scenes. To a truly tremendous committee of believers, miracle makers & dear friends. Yet again, you show us what is possible.
