The Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children (ACFC) is getting ready to hit the green with its first ACFC Golf Classic on Friday, Sept. 15.

The all-day event will welcome more than 140 golfers at the Camelback Golf Club in Scottsdale, which features two scenic courses, lakes, towering trees, and mountain views for what is sure to be a challenging and memorable golfing experience.

“I am very excited about the upcoming Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children’s inaugural Golf Classic,” says Chrisie Funari, president and founder of ACFC. “It is an important and meaningful event aimed at supporting Arizona children with cancer.”

Since 2014, the nonprofit has aided over 10,000 people by not only impacting the lives of children, but also providing support for entire families. All funds raised from the inaugural ACFC Golf Classic will directly benefit ACFC.
“The new ACFC Golf Classic will bring together golf enthusiasts and supporters to raise funds and awareness for a noble cause,” says Funari. “Their support will provide hope and assistance to young patients and their families.”

Later this year, ACFC is set to host its fourth annual Ava’s Tree House Gala at the Montelucia Resort and Spa in the Alhambra Ballroom on Saturday, Nov. 11. The event will include a hosted cocktail hour, an exquisite dinner, live entertainment, and more in support of the nonprofit’s courageous vision to welcome every family affected by pediatric cancer through its doors.

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 the nonprofit, or to register or donate, visit
