California United Bank, as part of an effort to be a good corporate citizen, hosts an annual golf tournament to benefit children’s charities.

Bill Sloan, California United Bank senior vice president/regional manager and Greg Spencer, vice president relationship manager, recently visited Carousel Ranch to see how the bank’s gift has been put to use.

“We started the golf tournament to help kids,” Sloan said. “When we first saw what they were doing here at Carousel Ranch, we knew it was amazing. They made it easy for choose a charity in the Santa Clarita Valley to assist.”

“This gift was really huge for us,” said Tomey. “Because of this gift, we didn’t have to cut clients or staff. We are so grateful to California United Bank. They really helped us.”

Carousel Therapeutic Riding Ranch serves nearly 90 clients a week with therapy sessions on horseback.

“Despite the economy, our goal has been to maintain the same level of service to our clients,” Tomey said.
