About our new name

About our new name

In our search for a new name, we talked to staff and clients about their work together, and the phrase “side by side” came up again and again. The experience of our direct care staff is of walking with the young person through their journey – not leading or following but meeting them where they are without judgment or hierarchy.

About our new name

Bank of Marin Golf Tournament

Given Governor Newsom’s press conference on April 14 and his statement that mass gatherings over the summer would be highly unlikely – Side by Side has made the hard decision to pivot our annual Bank of Marin Golf Tournament to a virtual event.

As you might imagine, after 25 years of teeing off at the Meadow Club, this was not a decision made lightly and we are saddened by the prospect of not holding our traditional tourney this year. Instead of 18 holes of golf, followed by dinner at the club, please join us for an online auction and fund-a-need held from June 19 – June 22.

More information on the online auction will be available soon — so please stay tuned! In the meantime, stay safe!

Support the event VIRTUALLY!
Bank of Marin Golf Tournament
We are committed to supporting the successful life transitions of homeless and disconnected youth, and see the Real Alternatives program as an invaluable partner in accomplishing our mission to improve the lives of our young people.
