“Golf-Fore-Charity” – April 29, 2013
Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy a great round of golf while supporting St. Vincent de Paul and other local charities. The Knights of Columbus, Council #11116 from Carefree will be holding their 12th annual Golf-Fore-Charity event on two of North Scottsdale’s premier private golf courses: Troon Country Club and Desert Highlands Country Club on April 29.
An 11:30 a.m. shotgun start begins the day that includes lunch, dinner, Holes-in-One for cars and $10,000, silent and live auctions, a $5,000 raffle and awards. The cost of $275 per golfer (foursomes are $1000) includes an afternoon program for each golfer’s guest commencing at 3 p.m. and includes wine tasting, cooking demonstrations and an auction preview.
Last year’s event raised $160,000 for St. Vincent de Paul and $50,000 for other local charities. Corporate sponsorships range from $1,000 to over $20,000 and tee signs are available for $150 for one and $250 for two (one on each course). Donated vacation properties, airline points, dinners, golf foursomes, services and other general items are also needed to help assure successful silent and live auctions.
Golf-Fore-Charity has become one of the premier charitable fund raising events in the state. The main beneficiary of this year’s proceeds will once again be St. Vincent de Paul, an organization that provides assistance to the poor, the hungry and the homeless. The need is great and the Knights are hoping to raise even more for this organization that does so much for so many.
