Fundraising a martial art for karate studio

A Costa Mesa-based karate studio helped to raise $10,000 through a charity golf tournament.

Bob White's Karate Studio on Victoria Street hosted the June 18 event, called Golfing For Kids, at the Costa Mesa Country Club. The proceeds will go to Royal Family Kids, or RFK, which helps children who have been abused, abandoned or neglected.

Bob White, a Costa Mesa resident, also organizes the annual Bob White Invitational karate tournament that raises funds for RFK.

"I am sure [Golfing For Kids] will grow as our karate tournament did," White said in an email. "Our first karate tournament for RFK raised $12,000, and this last year we gave them a check for $100,000. We are getting close to $500,000 so far in our donations."
