 Kids Play Free at City 9-Holes This Summer

All junior golfers under the age of 17 will play for FREE at any of the three Phoenix nine-hole courses this summer when accompanied by a paid adult – every day, all day. The “Kids Play Free” program will be available from June 1 through August 31 to encourage families to get out on the links with their children, enjoy the great game of golf and to promote Junior Golf in Phoenix. If only one adult is present, additional junior rounds can be purchased for $5 each (up to two additional junior rounds).

This program is an extension of the Phoenix Youth Golf Program that offers free golf lessons year-round to youngsters between the ages of 8 and 17 and the $26 Junior Play Pass good for 30 days at all Phoenix golf courses on a space-available basis.

Come “Tee It Up” for the 24 Hour Help Hotline by quotes

Come “Tee It Up” for the 24 Hour Help HotlineOn Sunday April 29th, Community Information & Referral (CIR) will present its inaugural “Tee It Up” Golf Classic at the beautiful Scottsdale Silverado Golf Club, a fundraising event benefiting one of Arizona’s leading nonprofits who has served the community through their 24 Hour Help Hotline since 1964.    

What makes the CIR “Tee It Up” Golf Classic unique and sets us apart from other golf fundraisers is the event is designed to reward ALL participants, regardless of talent. A “shotgun” start at 7:30 a.m. and “best-ball” style of play sets the stage for a great day of fun.  A $150 Single player entry fee or $500 fee for Foursomes provides golf giveaways, a great day of golf in a beautiful setting followed by an awards ceremony and luncheon.  All proceeds from the event will benefit CIR’s 24 Hour Help Hotline that has provided
Arizona communities information and referral resources for health, human and emergency services for nearly 43 years.  In 2006 the CIR 24 Hour Help Hotline responded to 259,341 calls for help and anticipates exceeding this number for 2007.
 

The event has captured some major sponsors already by receiving support from General Dynamics, First National Bank of
Arizona, SRP and The Thunderbirds Charities who donated a 2008 FBR Open Package including entry for four guests for all seven days of the upcoming event.  Single players, foursomes and select corporate sponsorships are still available. For complete event information, registration, sponsorships and underwriting opportunities, please visit http://www.cir.org and click on the “Tee It Up” Golf logo or call (602) 263-8845, ext. 113.
If you are in need of help, call the 24 Hour Help Hotline at (602) 263-8856
