Golf Classic Benefits Community Children

On December 4, the Salt River Community Children’s Foundation (SRCCF) hosted its 14th Annual Golf Classic at the Talking Stick Golf Club in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.

This year, the golf classic raised approximately $204,096. All proceeds will benefit and help provide services for Community children.

SRCCF is a nonprofit foundation that was established in 2003. According to its website, SRCCF provides scholarships and sponsorships that support educational, cultural and personal growth for youth to help them become successful students, leaders and contributing members inside and outside of the Community.

SRCCF ensures that funding will always be available to provide services for Community youth.

At this year’s tournament, 74 teams participated, some traveling from as far away as California and Chicago.

Representatives from Arizona Equipment Fabrication (AEF) participated in the Golf Classic.
“We are very grateful for all contributions from sponsoring companies and their golfers, who also got to enjoy a literally perfect day for golfing after helping us raise a huge amount of funds for the kids. We will do our best to wisely leverage those funds and multiply the opportunities that these donations will open up for the kids. We will be able to extend to them a helping hand and lift them up to a higher level of enjoyment and prosperity in life,” said SRCCF Chairman Bob Scabby.

Youth who have received assistance from the Salt River Community Children’s Foundation spoke of their personal experiences and thanked all who have contributed.
Golfers were then invited to the after-golf party and awards ceremony, where they enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and some lucky participants won raffle prizes.
