“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to lead our club, which was chartered in 1987,” Mr. Maderazzo said in a prepared statement. “Since then, every member of the Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club has worked tirelessly to make a positive impact to Arizona children’s charities through our fundraising efforts and time spent working directly with the youth.”

Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club’s is also gearing up for NiteFlite, which is a combination golf tournament and gala. The 30th annual NiteFlite event will be in October at McCormick Ranch Golf Club and the following day at the W Scottsdale.

Last year’s NiteFlite raised money for over a dozen local children’s charities, including partners from the #LoveUp Foundation and Playworks, a release states.

The club’s second biggest fundraiser, Brokers for Kids and Agents Benefitting Children involves over 550 residential real estate agents and commercial brokers going head-to-head in an Olympiad Championship which includes multiple competitions to support Boys Hope, Girls Hope and the Care Fund.

Brokers for Kids and Agents Benefitting Children will occur in April 2020 at the Scottsdale Stadium.
