As two California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) alumni, it is no wonder Ashley Wilken and Tony Brizzolara of the San Luis Obispo office decided to support Mustang Sports.

Each year, the need for support of the Cal Poly Athletic Department has become increasingly more important as budgets decrease. The University depends on the continued generosity from loyal alumni, boosters and friends to help sustain the annual financial costs of the sports teams.

A Cal Poly Mustang herself, Ashley joined the rodeo team while earning a Bachelor of Science and MBA in rodeo riderAgricultural Business from the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences. During her time at Cal Poly, she competed in barrel racing and goat tying.

Portfolio Manager Tony Brizzolara, a San Luis Obispo native, earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a minor in Finance at Cal Poly’s Orfalea College of Business. Tony continues to support the Mustangs and enjoys watching their baseball games and tennis matches.

Now Ashley and Tony are able to guarantee future students will have the same opportunities they were given through The Rice Partnership’s sponsorship. The firm’s donation to Cal Poly’s Athletics Department is put towards athletic scholarships for students – this donation is allotted to multiple students throughout the academic year.
