22nd annual Shriners Golf Classic presented by Sanderson Ford scheduled for May 19th at Gainey Ranch Golf Club

The 22nd annual Shriners Golf Classic presented by Sanderson Ford will be played at the exclusive Gainey Ranch Golf Club on Sunday, May 19, 2019, and is sure to be another sellout. 

A four-person scramble format, the tournament is open to the public, men and women alike, and is all about having fun while raising funds for a very worthwhile cause. The morning will begin with breakfast provided by WanderIn Cocktails followed by a $10,000 putting contest. 

Shriners Hospitals for Children is changing lives every day through innovative pediatric specialty care, world-class research and outstanding medical education. The 22 locations in the United States, Canada and Mexico provide advanced care for children with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate. 

Since their first hospital opened in 1922, providing care for pediatric orthopedic conditions has been the foundation of Shriners Hospitals for Children and to date they have helped over 1,400,000 children, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. This care continues from birth through the age of 18.

The local chapter of Shriners International, El Zaribah Shriners, has been a mainstay of the Valley since 1896. Highly recognized as those guys who wear funny red hats and drive go-karts in parades, many people are unaware of their philanthropy, Shriners Hospitals for Children. El Zaribah has over 2,400 children patients in their system from throughout Arizona and Sonora, Mexico. It is fundraisers such as the Shriners Golf Classic that allow them to send the children and parents to one of these hospitals. There is no Shriners Hospital for Children in Phoenix, therefore they send most of the children, without cost, to their hospitals in Salt Lake City, Sacramento and Los Angeles. 

Golfer spots and Hole Sponsorships are still available so hurry, registrations will close on Friday, May 10th. Visit www.Shrinersgolf.com for complete details and to register and pay for the event.
