Felipe Corral Golf Tournament: A huge success!

It had rained the night before so we weren’t sure if the golf course would be suitable for playing the day of the golf tournament. It was a little nerve wrecking since so much work goes into putting an event like this together! We arrived early to make sure it would be ok to move on and we got the go ahead.

It turned out to be a beautiful day. Players started arriving early to register. Felipe Corral was there early, as always, with a smile on his face and willing to help in any way he could.

The tournament started on time, at 7:30 a.m., and the fun began. 70 players were on the course fighting for first place.

This year, only the girls in the Isac Amaya Foundation were present. There were plenty of ‘girl power’ jokes going around.

After the tournament finished, we all got together for lunch. It was a packed room! Food, raffles, silent auction, prizes and winners made it a really fun afternoon where we were able to tell the story of the Isac Amaya Foundation and some of the stories of our scholarship recipients.

We are very grateful to everyone who lend a hand to make this happen. Thank you to our host Felipe Corral, our sponsors Univision Arizona and Nova Manna. Thank you to the Dbacks, the Cardinals, the Suns, the Legacy Golf Club and all the others who donated silent auction items. Thank you to Anthony Quezada for sharing his amazing success story as a golfer. Thank you to Dixon Golf for the extra games for people to play and for their contribution to our scholarship fund. Thank you to the volunteer members of the Isac Amaya Foundation for working hard on this as always, specially Sayra Sandoval for leading the coordination of the tournament. And thank you to the more than 70 people who showed up to play and support our scholarship fund! We hope to see everyone again next year.
