We arrived early on a Saturday morning to the Legacy Golf Club in Phoenix to photograph the 15th Annual Golf Classic charity event! This wonderful event is hosted by UMPS CARE Charities.
UMPS CARE's mission statement "puts into action our established creed, “Helping People is an Easy Call”. Through our youth-based programs, professional umpires enrich the lives of at-risk youth, children coping with serious illness and military families by providing memorable, once-in-a-lifetime, baseball experiences. Umpires make baseball magic on baseball fields across the country and give children reason to cheer by bringing Build-A-Bear Workshop experiences to them while they are undergoing rigorous medical treatment at hospitals. Through our scholarship initiative, we offer financial support to children adopted later in life."
This year, 36 golf teams participated in a lively and energetic 18-hole scramble game, featuring specialty holes on the course like the Vegas hole and the Boston Beer Hole! All sponsors, umpires, volunteers, and attendees had a wonderful day at the event. Many prizes were won and the fundraising aspect of the event was a huge success! Attendees had the opportunity to see first-hand the good work being done by UMPS CARE. One of UMPS CARE's past scholarship recipients attended the event and shared her story about how she grew up in very impoverished and unfortunate circumstances, but because of the UMPS CARE scholarship, she was able to go to nursing school and she is now a nurse! This event was also special as it featured ESPN'S very own MLB reporter Pedro Gomez as a special speaker! Those who attended the event enjoyed a live auction and raffle.
We had a great time photographing the event. We got to run around the golf course capturing the fun of the day and enjoying the lively event! Have a look at some of our favorite shots from this event with UMPS CARE.
