The annual NiteFlite Gala hosted by the Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club will be a night full of glitz and glamour at the W Scottsdale Hotel. Last year’s NiteFlite Gala raised over $616,000 for Arizona based children’s charities. This year, NiteFlite will celebrate its 30th anniversary and is looking to surpass its prior year’s fundraising total and participation.

The event raises money for more than a dozen local children’s charities, including the #LoveUp Foundation, Playworks Arizona, and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

“I’m thrilled to celebrate the 30th anniversary of NiteFlite and most importantly, raise money for Arizona children.” says NiteFlite Chairman, Ben McRae. “NiteFlite is one of Arizona’s longest running and most successful charity golf tournaments and this year’s charity Gala will be one of the most celebrated events in town.”

More than 1,500 people are expected to attend the formal Gala on Saturday, November 16th, where they will be treated to food and drinks from local restaurants, live music and entertainment, and night-long raffle prizes. The wildly popular NiteFlite Golf Tournament returns Friday, November 15, offering participants a day of golf, food, drink and the opportunity to win prizes, including the 19th hole Million Dollar Shootout.
