Lerner & Rowe Gives Back, the nonprofit arm of the award-winning law firm Lerner & Rowe Injury Attorneys, raised nearly $1.13 million to support local communities at its 10th Annual Lerner & Rowe Charity Golf Classic – a record for the golf tournament, just in time for its decade-long anniversary.
The Charity Golf Classic, hosted on Friday, April 28 at McCormick Ranch Golf Club, raised funds for local charitable programs throughout Arizona. Charities benefitting from the Golf Classic include Phoenix Children’s Hospital, PANDA, Military Assistance Mission, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale, Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels, Fiesta Bowl Wishes for Teachers and more.
“Lerner & Rowe Gives Back has a similar philosophy to the Fiesta Bowl Organization,” said Jose Moreno, Chief Marketing Officer at The Fiesta Bowl. “Our commitment to the community is the backbone of our mission. We feel extremely grateful to have continuous support from the Lerner & Rowe Gives Back Team. Our Wishes for Teachers charity donates $1 million annually to teachers across Arizona and would not be possible without their generous donations.”
Since its inception in 2013, The Lerner & Rowe Charity Golf Classic has raised more than $3.75 million for local charities.
“We are more than humbled by the amount of money that was raised this year and how the golf classic turned out,” said Kevin Rowe, founder of Lerner & Rowe Gives Back and founding partner of Lerner & Rowe Injury Attorneys. “Coming together with our team members, sponsors, and donors to support the surrounding communities has been an amazing experience. We are excited to see the positive impact the donations will make.”
