Thunderbirds Raise Record-Breaking $13 Million

2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open breaks record 8th straight year

The Thunderbirds, hosts of the Waste Management Phoenix Open Presented by The Ak-Chin Indian Community, raised a record $13.2 million for local charities through proceeds from the 2019 tournament. This is the highest single-year charitable donation in tournament history, breaking last year’s record total of $12.2 million and the first time eclipsing $13 million in tournament history. It also marks the eight consecutive year breaking the tournament record of charitable dollars raised in a single year.

The Thunderbirds and the Waste Management Phoenix Open have raised more than $81 million for local charities since 2010 when Waste Management became title sponsor. In its history, dating back to 1932, the Phoenix Open has raised more than $147 million for charities in Arizona.
