Arizona Charity Golf Classic

By Alyssa Boyd

Last weekend, I traveled to Scottsdale, Arizona with my boss, Brandi Greenleaf, fellow co-worker Chrissy Mulder, and previous Foundation worker Mandy Snyder to help with the Arizona Charity Golf Classic, a golf tournament put on by Tim Fleming of All-Star Framing to benefit the Marshall Faulk Foundation and Packages From Home. We arrived early on Friday afternoon to begin preparation for the big tournament on Sunday. While trying to endure the 100 degree heat, we spent Friday and Saturday setting up for the "pairings reception" on Saturday night at the Scottsdale Cigar Lounge, where there was a great turnout and we raised a good amount of money in a silent auction.

Sunday was an early morning, as we were at the golf course by 7 AM to help with registration and getting all the golfers ready to play. 114 men and women from Arizona participated in the scramble golf tournament, which lasted about 4 hours. Afterwards, everyone headed over to a local bar to watch Sunday football (aka, the Patriots beat the Bengals) and spend some more money on great auction items, including Marshall Faulk autographed pictures, a Kurt Warner autographed cleat, and different golf lessons at courses around Scottsdale. It was a busy, but exciting weekend, and now it's crunch time as we begin to prepare for Marshall's two big events: the Aztec for Life Homecoming Celebration on October 15th and Celebrity Extravaganza on November 5th and 6th!
