The Knights of Columbus, Council No. 11116 from Carefree will be holding its 14th 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 27.
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 raffle and awards.
Cost is $300 per golfer (foursomes are $1,200), which includes an afternoon program for each golfer’s guest commencing at 3 p.m., wine tasting, an auction preview and other activities.
Last year’s event raised $125,000 for St. Vincent de Paul and $40,000 for other local charities. Corporate sponsorships range from $2,000 to over $20,000 and hole sponsorships are available for $1,000.
The main beneficiary of this year’s proceeds will once again be St. Vincent de Paul, an organization that has fed, clothed, housed and healed Arizona’s poor as well as providing meaningful opportunities for volunteers to serve their neighbors in need with love and compassion since 1946.
