Food for the Holidays!

TPC Scottsdale announces their ‘Golf Fore Groceries’ annual food drive

There has never been a better time to help others by playing golf! TPC Scottsdale is doing their annual food drive – Golf Fore Groceries. If you bring in 5 canned goods, you’ll receive a discount on your golf fees at both courses, Stadium and Champions. On Stadium Course, you can golf for $175 + tax (rack rate $285) with 5 canned goods and the Champions Course for $69 + tax (rack rate $135.50). This offer is good any day of the week until December 31st, 2010 (not all tee times will be valid at this rate). To book your tee time, call 480.585.4334, ext. 1 or book online at and enter promo code: groceries.  

The cans are donated to the Foothills Food Bank in Cave Creek, Arizona. The Food Bank was founded in 1988 by several churches and the Foothills Community Foundation. They provide emergency food to those who occasionally must choose between groceries and keeping the utilities on. The Food Bank serves Cave Creek and parts of the Northeast Valley and is privately funded. They rely on the donations and kindness of others to keep their organization running. Both food and monetary donations are always appreciated.

Not only is the Food Bank looking for canned goods, they could additionally  use rice, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, juice (non-refrigerated), pasta sauce, canned pasta, canned fruit, dried potato side items, rice and pasta side items, saltine crackers, coffee, sugar, dry laundry detergent, or small bottles of cooking oil.  

There are also many golf tournaments in the valley that are tied to helping a charity. These are a great way to make a difference while doing what you love, golfing. In this economy, there are so many people that need help and if you can make a small difference in someone’s life, we’ll all be heading in the right direction.  

So, the next time you go out to play golf, know that you are helping someone in need, as well.
