Police Golf Tournament Benefits Kids Health


The Marana Police Volunteer Foundation is hosting their inaugural Golf Tournament Fundraiser, Pride for the Patch, on December 3, 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain.  All of the proceeds will go to the Pediatrics Unit at Banner University Medical Center Tucson. 

In an effort to show support for first responders, the “Pride for the Patch” was initiated for citizens to join forces with Law Enforcement, Fire Departments, Corrections, and Military to help make this a magical and unforgettable Christmas for all the sick and injured children at Banner UMC.

The Pediatrics Unit at Banner UMC Tucson, together with Banner’s Children’s facilities throughout the state, is proud to provide more care for more kids than any other health system in Arizona. Visiting the children there and seeing the tremendous challenges they face reminds us of just how lucky we are and what an impact we can make in their lives.

The Marana Police Volunteers Foundation is a qualified 501(c) and is maintained by the proud citizens of the Town of Marana.   Although the tournament is currently full, members of the community can show their support by going to www.maranapvfoundation.com and submitting their donations. 

With a supportive community behind us, we look forward to coming together and having a very successful inaugural event.

Members of the media are welcome to cover the event.   Representatives from the Marana Police Department, Marana Police Volunteer Foundation, as well as the Pediatric Unit at UMC are available for interviews and to share how this event will make a difference for the children.

The event is being held at The Golf Club at Dove Mountain, which is located at 6501 W. Boulder Bridge Pass in Marana.  The event will begin at 8:00 a.m. and will end at approximately 1:00 p.m.
