One of the events scheduled during the week of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, proceeds from the PGA TOUR Wives Golf Classic will benefit Association supported “Blessings in a Backpack” programs in Phoenix and other PGA TOUR Wives Association designated childrens charities. The tournament starts at 2 p.m.
With Super Bowl XLIX being contested at the University of Phoenix Stadium the same week as the Waste Management Phoenix Open, this year’s friendly, 9-hole shoot-out for charity Golf Classic will take on a football theme, with PGA TOUR professionals tending the flags, carrying the bags and raking the bunkers.
With more than 20 million children at risk of hunger in the United States, “Blessings in a Backpack” is a national program which provides elementary schoolchildren on the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal Program with a backpack of food to take home on weekends during the school year.
