10th Annual QCSEF Golf Tournament

Thank you to all who participated in the 10th Annual QCSEF Golf Tournament. Nearly 200 golfers hit the green for a good cause. The signature Queen Creek Schools Education Foundation fundraiser raised $63,000. The event was a great success! Support from sponsors and golfers allowed the foundation to surpass its fundraising goal. The money raised from the golf and bowling tournaments goes towards teacher grants and student scholarships. We truly appreciate the continued support from local businesses and the community.
