Phoenix Children Hospital’s 20th Annual Golf Tournament at Troon North Golf Club, 10320 E. Dynamite Blvd. in Scottsdale, raised funds for the hospital’s patients Friday, Nov. 16.

The annual event raised $560,000 with hosting 280 golfers that came out to support the cause, according to a press release. Proceeds benefit the Hope Fund, which helps the hospital launch new programs, purchase equipment, conduct research and much more.

“The Phoenix Children’s Hospital Golf Tournament is a great time for all golfers who participate, but it’s also a critical fundraiser for the kids at our hospital,” Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer Steve Schnall said in a prepared statement.

“Thanks to these golfers and our sponsors, we can continue providing critical care where it’s needed most.”

Over the past 20 years, golfers and sponsors have helped raise more than $6.6 million for the hospital.
