The Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club announced it donated just over $800,000 to 27 charities for its annual gifting meeting on May 17, 2019.
The nonprofit’s founding single objective is to support children’s charities. By hosting special events, this non-profit club draws the community together to raise funds for and to educate our citizens about the financial, medical, educational and emotional needs of Arizona’s children. Some of the local organizations that benefitted from these monies were Boys Hope Girls Hope of Arizona, Care Fund, Playworks, Boys and Girls Club of Scottsdale, Junior Achievement, Phoenix Children’s Hospital and the #LoveUp Foundation.
“The members of Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club recognize the importance of making a positive impact to the future of our community, “says Foundation President, Ben Tobias.
This year, the club hand delivered 19 of its checks to children’s charities across the Valley from Wednesday, May 8 through May 13. The event culminated with its annual gifting meeting, in which they handed out the nine largest checks.
“The local children’s organizations work tirelessly to improve the lives of kids in our community and it is an honor to help support them to further their missions to make an impact through our time and resources,” says Tobias.
Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club’s is also gearing up for its signature event, NiteFlite, which is a combination golf tournament and gala. The 30th annual NiteFlite event will take place in October 2019 at McCormick Ranch Golf Club and the following day at the W Scottsdale. Last year’s NiteFlite raised money for more than a dozen local children’s charities, including partners from the #LoveUp Foundation and Playworks.

Brokers for Kids and Agents Benefitting Children will occur in April 2020 at the Scottsdale Stadium.
