Did you know that 5.6 million people watched the Masters Tournament last month? If you were one of those golf enthusiasts, or you like to hit the links whenever you get the chance, maybe it is time to try a round of golf in June for a good cause. The Phoenix Metro Chamber Foundation and Blue Agave Mexican Cantina are coming together to host their annual charity golf tournament. This event takes place on June 12 at the Phoenician Golf Club, located at 6000 E. Camelback Rd. in Scottsdale.
Not only will this be a fun day of golfing, raffles, auctions and prizes, all the money raised at the event will benefit HopeKids Arizona and the Phoenix Metro Chamber Foundation.
“The Phoenix Metro Chamber Foundation is proud to partner with Blue Agave Mexican Cantina, the Phoenix Metro Chamber of Commerce, and our donors to support HopeKids Arizona,” says Jason Bressler, President and Executive Director of the Phoenix Metro Chamber Foundation. “We are honored to support HopeKids Arizona, its programs, and those they serve.”
HopeKids Arizona helps families who have been afflicted by childhood cancer. They also support families of children dealing with life-threatening conditions. The organization will use money raised at the annual event to host events and provide resources for families in need. The goal of HopeKids Arizona is to surround children and families with hope in a time that can feel hopeless.
To participate in the charity golf tournament, attendees can register as golfers or sponsors. The organization also welcomes donated raffle items, prizes and auction items.
The early bird price for the tournament is $120 for the basic package and $160 for the VIP package. Prices are valid until May 15. Participants who register after May 15 will have an increased registration fee of $160 for the basic package and $200 for VIP packages.
The event will be outdoors and will follow COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the safety of all guests in attendance. Register today for discounted rates and to connect with community members for a day of golfing and to help raise funds for a great cause. A second Charity Golf Tournament for this year will take place on Saturday, December 4, at Biltmore Golf Club. To register for this event, go to blueagavegolf.com.
