Scottsdale Invitational scores hole in one for Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale

Board members, volunteers and other supporters of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale were pleased to spend Monday, May 16 with prestigious members of the business and charitable community for a beautiful day of golf at the annual Scottsdale Invitational presented by Ironwood Investment Counsel, LLC, at the exclusive Troon Country Club. Jeff Shiffra of Ironwood Investment Council and Robert Winter of Mutual of Omaha co-chaired the event, which raised nearly $40,000 for the organization. The foursome from General Dynamics led by Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale Board of Governors member Craig Hadges, as well as Anthony Parker, Bobby Crosta and Matt Jones won the Invitational with a score of 55.

The event included breakfast followed by a round of golf on one of Scottsdale’s premier private golf courses. The day concluded with a lunch reception silent auction, and an awards presentation. All proceeds from the event will directly support youth development programs for children and teens served by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale.

“Title sponsorship from Ironwood Investment Council and leadership from Jeff allows us to limit the field to 18 foursomes making the event a true invitational and ensuring that we have an intimate environment for our participants to interact and get through the golf round in less than five hours,” said Boys & Girls Clubs of Scottsdale’s Chairman of the Board David Cohen.
