For the fourth consecutive year, power soccer athlete Gabe Trujillo and his family help coordinate the event in an effort to raise funds for the power soccer program at Arizona Disabled Sports (AZDS). This year, the money raised from the tournament went to help cover traveling and registration expenses for the Arizona State University Power Soccer Club as they traveled to the USPSA Premier Cup Tournament in Atlanta, GA in June.
This was the club’s inaugural season and their first major tournament as a team. All of the ASU athletes are current students or graduates and are members of AZDS. The team was eager to attend the tournament and the money raised from the golf tournament would help them get there.
Jack Nicklaus himself could have asked for better weather. Everything seemed to fall in place for an absolutely amazing day out on the links. All the golfers were in great spirits and enjoyed spending a relaxing and fun-filled day on the course to support a great cause.
After the tournament, all of the golfers were treated to a barbecue and awards ceremony to award prizes to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams. Raffle prizes were also handed out during lunch as well.
All in all, the entire tournament was a complete success. Everyone had a great time and the club raised more than $4,000 for their trip to Atlanta.
