Valley of the Sun CFMA Golf Tournament

Contributed by Dave Miller

On October 28, the Valley of the Sun Chapter of CFMA held its 25th annual golf tournament. There were 126 registered golfers and the event was held at Orange Tree Golf Resort.


From my perspective, it was a little bit of old and a little bit of new. The old: we held the event at Orange Tree Golf Resort where we have hosted this event for several years. Once again, CBIZ MHM was the title sponsor. The new: we had a golf ball launcher on one of the holes as part of the fundraising effort. Golfers, for a donation, could use the launcher that shot the golf ball 325 yards to the green on hole number 10, a par 4.

Thanks to all the golfers, we raised more than $3,100 on the day of the event from raffle prize donations and the golf ball launcher. Overall, thanks to our many generous sponsors, including CBIZ, Sundt Construction, Haydon Building, Sunland Asphalt, and Jokake Construction, we raised more than $21,700. The funds are used to provide scholarships to students studying construction management; to help our CFMA members attend the annual CFMA conference for the first time; and to provide scholarships for candidates sitting for the Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional exam.  

Thank you to all of those who participated and we look forward to next year’s tournament!
