The Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club hosted its 28th annual NiteFlite Oct. 13 and 14. The festivities started with the return of the NiteFlite Golf Tournament at McCormick Ranch Golf Club on Fri., Oct. 13, offering participants a day of golf and entertainment.
More than 1,500 guests attended the formal gala at the W Scottsdale on Sat., Oct. 14. The crowd enjoyed food and drinks from local restaurants and had the opportunity to win prizes during the night-long raffle.
“The support we received from the community for this year’s NiteFlite is overwhelming. It’s great to see so many people come together to support such a great cause,” says Skyler Irvine, NiteFlite 2017 chair.
The annual NiteFlite affair raised more than $411,000 for more than a dozen local children’s charities, including the event’s primary charity partner, Playworks. This nonprofit organization partners with elementary schools to create a place for every kid on the playground, a place where every kid belongs.
“We are extremely excited about the success from this year’s NiteFlite and the opportunity it provides us with to continue to serve Valley kids,” says Suzanne Percy, Playworks development director.
The Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club was founded with the single objective of supporting children’s charities in Arizona. The club is now gearing up for its next fundraiser. Brokers for Kids and Agents Benefitting Children will take place at Scottsdale Stadium on Fri., April 13, 2018, with a full day olympiad. The money raised in the spring will go to help charity partners, The Care Fund and Boys Hope Girls Hope.
