In the last eight years, proceeds from the Albertson’s Kids Cafe Open have provided nearly half a million meals to children at risk of hunger, in addition to providing an enjoyable day of golf at the beautiful Wigwam Golf Resort & Spa (300 E. Wigwam Blvd) in Litchfield Park.
All golfers will be treated to lunch, beverages, goodie bags and tournament shirts. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, longest drive and accuracy, closest-to-the-pin and Hole-In-One.
But the big winners are the children of Arizona, many of whom would not know where their next meal would come from without programs from St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance.
The ninth annual event tees off Friday, April 16 and there are still spots open for both players ($200 per player or $800 per foursome) and sponsors at the Eagle ($10,000), Birdie ($5,000), Par ($2,000) and Tee ($1,000) levels.
