Phoenix Metro Chamber Foundation/Nick Lowery Youth Foundation Charity Golf Tournament is set for April 26
Funds raised will help the homeless, disadvantaged youth and other causes
PHOENIX, Ariz. (February 25, 2019) – A day playing golf will help the homeless, disadvantaged youth and other causes, thanks to the Phoenix Metro Chamber Foundation/Nick Lowery Youth Foundation Charity Golf Tournament, taking place on Friday, April 26 at Stonecreek Golf Club, 4435 E. Paradise Village Parkway S., in Phoenix.
Proceeds from the event will help raise funds for several Nick Lowery Youth Foundation programs, including the five time-yearly Champions for the Homeless event, the StrongerSafer Sport Program to reduce concussions in sports, and a program to help Native American youth.
While sports fans know Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Famer Nick Lowery as the most accurate kicker in NFL History, it’s Lowery’s service record as Man of the Year five times for two NFL teams and drive for helping others that keeps the Nick Lowery Youth Foundation in the national spotlight.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the Nick Lowery Youth Foundation. It’s easy to get behind his causes because of his relentless and genuine concern for making a difference in people’s lives,” said Jason Bressler, executive director and charter member of the Phoenix Metro Chamber Foundation (PMCF).
Bressler, who also serves as the founder and executive director of the Phoenix Metro Chamber of Commerce (PMCC), said the chamber foundation conducts fundraising efforts year-round for dozens of charities, but the golf tournament is their largest fundraiser of the year.
Lowery, who has lived in the Valley for more than two decades, has received numerous accolades for his tireless work, including the most prestigious humanitarian award an NFL player can receive, The Byron Whizzer White Award.
“I’m deeply grateful to the Phoenix Metro Chamber Foundation for this chance to raise funds together,” Nick Lowery said. “Our work is not done. Homelessness continues to be a big problem throughout metro Phoenix, and we need to be advocates for at-risk kids. There are so many opportunities to get involved with this dynamic event and make an impact in our community.”
Bressler said registration is open for single golfers and foursomes, and sponsors and volunteers are welcome.
“We’ll also be conducting a golf ball drop from a helicopter – you don’t have to play golf to participate in that, and you’ll have a chance to win 50 percent of the proceeds from the golf ball sales,” Bressler said.
Proceeds from the golf tournament will also be distributed to the Phoenix Metro Chamber Foundation, Harvest Compassion Center & Mitchell Swaback Charities, Junior Golf Association of Arizona and Girl’s Golf of Phoenix.
