A Season of Giving
The Kenneth A. Spinato Foundation hosted its 7th annual golf tournament in November. The foundation aims to raise money for local children’s and veteran’s charities. This year, we donated $27,000 to Arizona’s Children Association and Sentinels of Freedom Arizona.
We enjoyed our ongoing partnership with Phoenix Children’s Hospital, and we were able to raise $6,600. We hosted two separate events: a poker tournament in July and Time to Shine for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September.
In September, we participated in Phoenix Rescue Mission’s Feed the Hungry event by donating $4,600 in meals to the homeless. Our team brought Spinato’s meals to the women and children at their facility at the beginning of the month. It was a great opportunity to see their space and learn more about how they help families in need. Towards the end of that month, we invited the men to visit our Central Phoenix location and enjoy a nice dinner out. It was incredibly rewarding to visit with these families and listen to their stories while sharing our passion with them.
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, we raised $500 for local organization Don’t Be a Chump Check for a Lump. The month of November is always a huge time to give back, and thanks to our generous guests, we were able to donate $3,710 for St. Mary’s Food Bank through our turkey drive.
Our gift certificate donations for 2017 reached over $8,000, which benefited local organizations. Our core values of Community is extremely important to us, and that means that whenever possible, we will support local organizations that improve our community. We are so grateful for everyone who volunteered at each event and our guests who contributed donations. Our incredible team brought forth awareness for these charities while continuing to deliver the first-class Spinato’s Experience.
We have a passion for supporting charities in our community. To request a donation or learn more about fundraising events, head over to our fundraising page.
