PHOENIX – April 14, 2009 – Rainbow Housing Assistance Corporation (Rainbow) announced that it has scheduled its Second Annual “Play It Forward” Golf Fundraiser** for May 1st, 2009 at the Rio Verde Country Club.
In order to continue to provide much needed resident services, Rainbow has put together their Second Annual “Play It Forward” Golf Fundraiser Tournament. The tournament is scheduled to take place on May 1st, 2009 at the Rio Verde Country Club from 10:30am to 8:00pm MST. The Rio Verde Country Club is a “Member’s Only” private golf club nestled at the base of Four Peaks Mountains in Rio Verde, Arizona, just east of Scottsdale, with spectacular views from each hole on the course. Jay Critcher, the Club’s General Manager, and Darryl Janisse, Head Golf Professional, are honored that the Rio Verde Country Club has been selected again as the course to hold such an important event and both support the well being of not for profit organizations in Arizona.
Rainbow reached out to many national and local companies and organizations to commit to hole sponsorships that also aligned with their core values. The hole sponsorships includes: green fees, cart fees, range balls for warm-up, lunch, and a plated dinner with the awards ceremony given by the Head Golf Professional, Darryl Janisse, of the Rio Verde Country Club.
Rainbow is welcoming new sponsors to the event this year and encourages you to be a part of something empowering and life changing.
When asked what this event means to her, Flynann Janisse, Executive Director for Rainbow stated, “I joined the non-profit world because it offered a means for me to use the skills I had developed over the past 20 years in housing and pay it forward. The opportunity to truly make a difference in the lives of one or many pulled at my very soul. I never imagined my life’s work would become giving life to others. As an organization, we are making a difference in so many ways and the need for our support is growing every day. The face of our homeless population has changed nationally to your friend, your neighbor, our military, your family and the teachers of our schools. We at Rainbow can offer housing and the supportive services necessary to get those in need back on their feet and once again part of our communities.”
