JFCS Raises More Than $40,000 for Mental Health, Healthcare and Social Services at Inaugural Puttin’ for a Purpose Event
By Michelle Talsma Everson - Thursday Oct 05, 2023
Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JFCS), a leading human services nonprofit organization in Maricopa County, successfully raised more than $40,000 at its inaugural Puttin' for a Purpose presented by Knight Swift Transportation event on Sept. 28. These crucial funds will support JFCS in its ongoing commitment to deliver mental health, healthcare and social services to children, adults and families throughout Maricopa County, regardless of age, faith or background.

The event, held at Putting World in Scottsdale, was structured in two segments. In round one, participants competed across 18 holes with the objective of achieving the lowest score. In round two, participants were given a single opportunity to sink a 50-foot hole-in-one. In addition to the putting activities, attendees were treated to complimentary food and refreshments and had the opportunity to win a range of valuable prizes.

"The support we received at this event underscores the collective commitment to the mental and physical well-being of children, adults and families in Maricopa County,” says Len Gutman, Vice President of Philanthropic Services. “I want to extend our deepest gratitude to every individual who attended, our generous sponsors, JFCS team members, volunteers, emcee Kayla Mortellaro of KDUS and the staff of Putting World. Together, you helped make an impact.”

For more than 85 years, JFCS has been a cornerstone in the Valley, assisting more than 40,000 children, individuals, and families annually. To support its upcoming Brighter Tomorrow Luncheon fundraiser on Jan. 24, 2024, visit
