Longbow Golf Club
Get Ready. Get Set. Golf!
Enjoy a day of golf, followed by an awards dinner and silent auction, all designed to support Sunshine Acres Children’s Home!
Shotgun Start: 9:30 AM
Presented by East Valley Charities and Longbow Business Park and Golf Club, Shootout for Sunshine is a four-man scramble. Lunch is served on the greens by Dietz & Watson. After the tournament, join us for a silent auction and awards dinner, deliciously served by Carrabba’s Italian Grill. Whether you play the game, just want to attend the dinner and silent auction or become an event sponsor, all proceeds benefit Sunshine Acres Children’s Home.
This year, our silent auction is available online. We’ve made it convenient to register in one of three ways:
1. Scan the QR Code
2. Text “Sunshine “
East Valley Charities is donating the funds raised from Shootout for Sunshine toward a brand new Aquatic Center, which will build the pool and donating the $100,000 match. With these funds, we can provide an updated pool that will accommodate all the children in our care. The images on the left show what the Aquatic Center will look like. Thank you again to East Valley Charities and Platinum Commercial Pool Construction, LLC for their outstanding contributions – we can’t wait for the day when we can say the Aquatic Center is now open!
