GBB Joins KCRA and the Red Cross Telethon to Benefit Fire Victims in Butte County
November 2018 – Devastating wildfires tragically burned throughout Butte County, changing the lives of so many. GBB partnered with KCRA and the Red Cross telethon to raise money for the fire victims of Butte County.
From 4 AM through the entire morning, GBB partners spent the morning answering phones and accepting donations. Kelly, Alex, Nathan, Scott, Rod, John and Abby all contributed to the cause and spent hours answering phones.
GBB also made a $10,000 donation to the cause.
We’re proud of our team for answering the call and supporting our community!
Rebuilding Together Sacramento - Volunteering at the Veterans Center
October 2018 – GBB recently partnered with local volunteering company, Rebuilding Together Sacramento for the opportunity to spend the day giving back to the community. We pulled up our sleeves, put on gloves, and got down to work all day!
All GBB employees were on site at the Citrus Heights Community Veterans Center helping take care of a variety of renovations and repairs. Tasks included painting, storage organization, building a fence and shed, and kitchen renovations.
Thank you to the GBB Retirement Plan team for organizing and executing a fantastic day! In addition, thank you to Rebuilding Together Sacramento for the opportunity.

2018 Capital Cup
GBB's Kelly Brothers is a proud participant in the 2018 Sacramento Capital Cup on October 5-7th! The Capital Cup is a golf tournament featuring 28 executive leaders from around the Sacramento area, competing in the historic Ryder Cup format. The tournament promotes community pride, healthy competition, and raises money for some of Sacramento's most deserving charities.
From Kelly Brothers - "I am supporting the Capital Cup for two reasons. First, I am so very impressed with what Curt Rocca has accomplished in founding this Tourney. To go from zero to over $1Million raised in 3 years is an astounding feat!
Second, the Capital Cup gives me a chance to show support for the Boy Scouts of America. I believe Scouting programs have never been needed more. Scouting allows boys and girls the opportunity to put down their digital devices and engage in a program where expertise is learned, character is developed, and collaboration is encouraged; all in the great outdoors. Scouts learn life skills, management skills, coping skills, and how to work as a member of a team. One of my sons earned his Eagle and the second hopes to be an Eagle. Through their experiences, I have witnessed Scouting’s impact on young people’s lives and future prospects. Boy Scouts of America: Prepared. For Life."
