Foothills Caring Corps to host charity golf tournament


SCOTTSDALE – The Foothills Caring Corps is inviting golf lovers to tee up for a good cause at the 6th Annual Charity Golf Tournament at Mirabel Golf Club in Scottsdale, slated for Monday, Nov. 14.

The FCC is a Carefree- based volunteer organization dedicated to promoting independence and enhancing the quality of life for older residents in the northeast Valley. The tournament is a major fundraiser for the agency, which provides a variety of invaluable services including medical and van transportation, friendly visits, mobile meals, shopping assistance, and more for northeast Valley residents.

Festivities take place at Mirabel Golf Club, a private facility and home to an acclaimed Tom Fazio designed golf course, located at 37100 N. Mirabel Club Drive, in Scottsdale.

Individual registration for the scramble format tournament is $400 and includes golf, food, and beverages. Space is limited to 104 players. Tournament registration and breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by a putting contest open to all competitors. After the putting warm-up, sponsors and players will head to their tees for a 10 a.m. shotgun start.

Hole-in-one and additional prize opportunities will be part of the play this year. Raffle prizes and select auction items will follow the play, as well as drinks and hors d’oeuvres.

“Foothills Caring Corps has made a huge difference in the lives of many senior individuals living here in the valley. Whether it's taking them shopping, driving them to medical visits or just spending time with those in need, Foothills Caring Corps is committed to providing much needed services to those in our community. The tournament is a great way to support our efforts,” said Debbra Determan, executive director.
