It is that time of year again, you know, the time of hot temps, shorts and movie blockbusters. And of course, golf tournaments.
On May 9, my power soccer team, the Arizona Heat, held our 4th Annual Benefit Golf Tournament the Links at Queen Creek Golf Course. Over 50 golfers made their way out to the East Valley to support the Heat squad as we prepare for the trip to the National Tournament in Fishers, IN this June
While the temperatures flirted with 100 degrees, it was still a great day to tee it up on the course. During the tourney, I made my way out to Hole 5 to converse with the golfers as they teed off. I was also joined by friends and family who volunteered to sell raffle tickets for the closest to the pin contest.
We cheered on the golfers as they tried their luck at a chance to land their ball in the 10-foot diameter circle on the green. It wasn’t the 16th hole at the TPC, but it was still fun.
After the tournament, the golfers and volunteers were treated to lunch as we presented prizes to the 1st and 2nd place foursomes and held the raffle. As the golfers enjoyed the barbeque, several members of the Arizona Heat made it out to show their thanks to everyone in attendance.
All in all, the tournament was once again a huge success. Thanks again to all the volunteers and people who made this event possible. We raised more than $3,500 and it will go towards funding our trip to the National Tournament.
Stay tuned for info on next year’s tournament.
