Teal It Up Golf Tournament, Sept. 20
PHOENIX – Golfing fans can head over to the east valley and tee off for a good cause on Saturday, Sept. 20.
The Anne Rita Monahan Foundation is partnering with The Teal It Up Foundation, a local nonprofit dedicated to creating awareness about ovarian cancer and raising funds to fight ovarian cancer in Arizona. They’re hosting the Teal It Up Golf Tournament and Tee for Teal Luncheon.
“With two strong foundations coming together, we can create greater momentum in the fight for finding an earlier means of detection and hopefully, a cure,” said Jan Coggins, ovarian cancer survivor and founder of The Teal It Up Foundation. “We are grateful for this wonderful opportunity to work with The Anne Rita Monahan Foundation in our mutual efforts to combat this dreadful disease.”
The day’s events will include a morning of golf at Rio Verde Country Club, silent auction, lunch, and event programming. The programming for the event includes the presentation of two 2014 ARM Foundation Scholarships and the 5th Annual Anne Rita Monahan Crusader Award. The Teal It Up Foundation will also present a variety of golf awards, including the prestigious Barbara Douglas Award for the first place foursome.
“The Anne Rita Monahan Foundation is honored to partner with The Teal It Up Foundation for this event,” said Jennifer Graves, president of The Anne Rita Monahan Foundation. “Together we hope to empower those individuals and their families who may have been affected by this disease and help raise awareness and support the cause.”
Proceeds from the silent auction will help further support the ARM Foundation’s annual scholarship program. Attendees can attend the golf tournament, the luncheon or both.
Individual golfer costs are $150, and a foursome is $500. Luncheon costs start at $50. All golf registration includes green fees, golf cart, practice facilities/range balls, breakfast, and lunch. Sponsorship packages are also available.
