Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club raises nearly $400K for children

 

Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club has announced it raised $396,319 during the 27th annual NiteFlite two-day event held Oct. 14-15.

Friday’s event took place at the Camelback Golf Club and included one of Arizona’s longest running charity golf tournaments. Golfers had the chance to play on the Padre Course, which features lush fairways and greens resulting in a truly challenging round of golf, according to a press release.

Players enjoyed complimentary drinks and food and won prizes throughout the day.

Saturday was a semi-formal gala that took place at the Entertainment District of Old Town Scottsdale.

About 2,000 people mingled in and around Hi-Fi Kitchen and Cocktails, Bottled Blonde and The District, the release stated.

The gala featured break dancers from B-boy Gravity, speed painter Randall Hedden, magician Shawn Eric, music from the band SuperHero and food from local restaurants such as Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, Melting Pot, Even Stevens Sandwiches, The Park and Sprinkles Cupcakes.

A raffle drawing throughout the night included prize packages such as a trip to Sonoma, Cabo and Rocky Point—all while benefiting more than a dozen local children’s charities including the event’s primary charity partner, Playworks.

Playworks is a nonprofit that partners with elementary schools to create a place for every child on the playground—a place where every kid belongs.

NiteFlite is the club’s largest signature fundraising event of the year, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities, the release stated.

The Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club was founded with the single objective of supporting children’s charities. By hosting special events, this non-profit club draws the community together to raise funds for and to educate our citizens about the financial, medical and emotional needs of Arizona’s children.

The club provides young adults with an opportunity to impact the community by improving the quality of life for special needs children while fostering personal growth, friendships, networking skills and leadership development.
