Electrical workers gathered in Arizona to raise over $262,000 for The Rosendin Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit incorporated to positively impact communities through financial grants and volunteer work. Over 140 golfers, 30 volunteers, and 43 company sponsors supported The Rosendin Foundation’s Inaugural Fundraising Golf Tournament and auction, held September 26 at the We-Ko-Pa Golf Club in Fort McDowell, Arizona.
The Rosendin Foundation supports community nonprofits around the country that promote emotional, nutritional, and occupational health programs. The Foundation impacts these organizations by providing financial grants and donations of up to $50,000 per organization. It also empowers and inspires people to be their best through volunteer efforts and donation drives in 16 cities.
“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of partners and players who helped us exceed our expectations for our inaugural fundraising golf tournament, which raised $262,255 in gross revenues for those in need,” said Jolsna Thomas, President of The Rosendin Foundation. “We are grateful to everyone who has supported our efforts over the last two years, enabling us to serve well over 150 organizations that provide critical services.”
During the reception that followed the tournament, Thomas recognized the event’s top sponsors that made significant donations including Border States, Sunbelt Rentals, Wesco Distribution, Champion Fiberglass, Chubb, Epic Brokers, Rutan & Tucker, Travelers, and Zurich. Several sponsors also provided in-kind donations for a silent auction and a live auction including Southwest Airlines, Phoenix Suns, Milwaukee Tools, Stanley Black and Decker/Dewalt, WeKoPa Golf Course & Resort, Anaheim Ducks, LA Rams, LA Angels, and Commerce Bank.
