Ronald McDonald House CharitiesÂ® of Central and Northern Arizona (RMHCCNAZ) is excited to announce its signature event, the 7th Annual Ronald McDonald House Pro-Am Golf Tournament, will return this year on Thursday, May 13 at Grayhawk Golf Club. A shotgun start at 8:30 AM will lead the festivities with accompaniments of a VIP clinic, breakfast and lunch, raffle drawing, awards celebration and silent auction also on the docket.
Setting itself apart from other golf tournaments, the unique pro-am event presented by JFQ Lending and chaired by RMHCCNAZ board member Myles Johnson of Garzella Group, has attracted an impressive field of amateur and professional golfers throughout the years. Names in the likes of World Golf Hall of Famers Betsy King and Pat Bradley, LPGA Tour Pro Jan Stephenson, and PGA Champions Kirk Triplett, Tom Purtzer, Scott Langley, Don Pooley and Howard Twitty have all competed alongside event participants to benefit families staying at the Valleyâ€™s three Ronald McDonald HousesÂ®.
The crucial funds raised during this yearâ€™s tournament will support RMHCCNAZâ€™s mission of providing a â€œhome-away-from-homeâ€ for families who travel to the Valley seeking critical medical care for their children by providing nights of comfort and rest at no charge. Since opening in Phoenix in 1985, Ronald McDonald HouseÂ® has served over 56,000 families locally.
