BAJA Ambassadors: Social/Civic Events
While the Board of Directors governs BAJA Sporting Club bylaws, expenditures, rules, policies and makes decisions to operate the club, the BAJA Ambassadors are members who organize and manage social events and community service projects for the club.
Our mission is to provide opportunities for all interested members, spouses, and partners to participate in organized social events and civic activities that promote BAJA and support the community. → BAJA Ambassadors Charter (PDF)
We also conduct various fundraising activities to offset the costs associated with our endeavors, including BAJA LOGO MERCHANDISE, 50-50 raffles held during social events, including annual Cornhole and Mini-golf Tournaments.
Our efforts are organized into two categories: BAJA Social Events and Community Outreach, as described below:

Community Outreach — BAJA Caring Hearts & BAJA Helping Hands
Our Community Outreach efforts are organized into BAJA Caring Hearts and BAJA Helping Hands:
- BAJA CARING HEARTS
is our community donation arm of the Ambassadors to which BAJA members are asked to donate to select community entities, such as the Community Food Bank and the Continental School Behavior Reward program.
- BAJA HELPING HANDS
is our volunteer action arm of the Ambassadors. Members are asked to volunteer their time and effort to help with specific community service projects, such as helping deliver Green Valley Phone Directories, driving golf carts for Fiesta Sahuarita parking assistance at Anamax Park, helping collect Hazardous Waste, making desserts and running sign in at social events.
