Three-day Radio-thon Kicks off Wednesday April 17 on KSLX 100.7 FM; Bed Race on March 19 Caps Event to Raise Awareness of Arizona’s Hungry
In the last eight years, proceeds from the Albertson’s Kids Cafe Open have provided nearly half a million meals to children at risk of hunger, in addition to providing an enjoyable day of golf at the beautiful Wigwam Golf Resort & Spa (300 E. Wigwam Blvd) in Litchfield Park.
Cubs legend and Hall of Fame pitcher Ferguson Jenkins presented a check for $2,100 to St. Mary’s Development Officer Christina Calio during Monday’s baseball game at Mesa’s HohoKam Park. The money was raised for St. Mary’s and several other Valley Charities through the third annual “Fergie & Friends” Celebrity Baseball Game on Mar. 17. Jenkins also signed a baseball that will be part of the silent auction at the 9th annual Albertson’s Kids Cafe Open golf event at the Wigwam resort on Friday, April 16. For more information, look for the golf ball on the homepage at www.firstfoodbank.org.
