The Tom Londen Memorial Golf Classic 2022
In case you are unable to attend the yoga event, the upcoming Tom Londen Memorial Golf Classic 2022 will be held April 1-2 and all funds raised at the event will be donated to the ACFC.
The annual golf tournament is hosted by the Londen family who lost their father Tom to cancer. The event helps spread awareness and raise money for children with cancer. The event kicks off Friday, April 1 with an evening reception at Talking Stick Resort, which is free to attend. The reception will include a charity auction, raffle prizes, complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. The golf tournament takes place on Saturday, April 2 at the Talking Stick Golf Club, located at 9998 E. Talking Stick Way in Scottsdale.
“The funds raised from these events will help cover expenses associated with a child’s cancer diagnosis, provide K9 therapy and counseling, birthday gifts, art classes, and overall emotional and financial support to Arizona families,” says Funari. “Support from our local community is an integral part of Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children and allows us to offer our programs free of charge to hundreds of Arizona families yearly.”
Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children’s mission is to provide social, emotional, and financial support directly to families managing the health and wellbeing of a loved one with pediatric cancer. For more information on these events, visit azcancerfoundation.org/all-events.
