Balboa Thrift and Loan – Gold Sponsor

Balboa Thrift and Loan was organized as a California Industrial Loan Company under the laws of the State of California and opened in Chula Vista, on July 7,1980. It was organized to provide financial services to businesses and consumers in our community. Balboa Thrift and Loan has since established branches in Claremont, La Quinta and Fresno CA, to serve the financial needs of those communities.

Balboa Thrift and Loan enjoys an excellent reputation for customer service and responsiveness. With limited amounts of advertising and other promotional activities, Balboa has stressed community awareness through the involvement of Balboa Thrift and Loan’s officers and directors in community organizations and events.


Welk Resorts – Gold Sponsor

In 1964, Lawrence Welk went for a drive in the country north of San Diego, California planning to invest in a grove of orange trees. Instead he bought a motel and a nine-hole golf course. After Welk staged one of his shows at the site, it became a popular tourist spot and grew to include a theatre, more golf and eventually timeshare.

Today, the Welk Group operates Interval International (II) premier timeshare properties in San Diego, Palm Springs and Cabo San Lucas, as well as a theatre and Resort Hotel in Branson. These resorts have been honored with Gold Crown status by Resort Condominiums International, a major worldwide vacation exchange organization.  Visit them at www.welkresorts.com to learn more!



Kyocera Corporation, the headquarters and parent company of the global Kyocera group, was founded in 1959 in Kyoto, Japan as a start-up venture by Dr. Kazuo Inamori and seven colleagues. Kyocera’s founders shared a vision of creating a company dedicated to the successful manufacture and sale of innovative, high-quality products based on advanced materials and components. Over the past six decades, this vision has resulted in a highly successful and widely diversified global enterprise.

Kyocera’s North American operations have contributed strongly to the company’s overall success. We established our first North American sales company in 1969, a two-person operation serving Silicon Valley’s burgeoning semiconductor industry and other high-tech markets throughout the United States. Since then, our North American operations have expanded to more than 4,000 employees engaged in the manufacture and sale of a broad range of state-of-the-art, high-technology products for consumers and businesses alike.
