2018 Blessings in a Backpack
For the past nine years, The Thunderbirds – hosts of the Waste Management Phoenix Open – have partnered with the PGA TOUR Wives Association to support Blessings in a Backpack. The organization aims to mobilize communities, individuals and resources to provide weekend food assistance to elementary school children who might otherwise go hungry.
“The Valley supports the WM Phoenix Open so well, and as a result of that, we get to give back,” said Chance Cozby, Tournament Chairman of the 2019 WM Phoenix Open. “I think we all realize there are kids in need, and we need to make sure kids are going home on the weekends with the nourishment they need. We feel we’re making a difference in these young people’s lives.”
Blessings in a Backpack supports more than 87,000 children in nearly 1,100 schools across 45 different states by providing the nourishment needed to learn and grow.
