As a part of this year’s coverage for the upcoming annual Breakthru Beverage Charity Golf Classic­–teeing off September 22 and 23–Breakthru Arizona is proud to spotlight its charity partners, all of which have been instrumental in making this charity golf tournament a yearly success.

 

Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix

 

Since 1946, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix has been a steady hand in the greater Phoenix community, helping nearly 30,000 Valley youths a year develop their educational and personal skill sets.

 

For many youths, such as Camrae, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix was a safe haven during the turbulent times of her life.

 

Growing up without a father was a harsh reality that Camrae braved as a child. Years of struggling with drug addiction eventually took her father, and the aftermath of the tragedy left Camrae with her own traumas, including a hospital stay for depression and starvation.

 

Luckily, Camrae’s mother found the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix, and Camrae’s journey of building herself back up began. She joined a variety of teams and participated in programs that helped her regain her confidence. In fact, Camrae’s participation in the programs was so successful, she was named the Youth of the Year for the entire state of Arizona, earning her a scholarship to Arizona State University.

 

Breakthru Arizona is passionate about supporting organizations such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix, and are very proud to support their mission through the annual Breakthru Arizona Charity Golf Classic.

 

“We are honored to be chosen as one of the beneficiaries for this year’s Charity Golf Classic,” said Marcia Mintz, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix. “Partnerships such as the one we have developed with Breakthru are instrumental in helping make change in our community and our Club kids thank you.”
