The events continue the next day with the Third Annual Arizona Celebrity Golf Classic at the Kierland Golf Club, followed by a reception and awards presentation with event sponsor Desert Capital Films.
“We are excited to return to the Westin Kierland to host our Third Annual Arizona Celebrity Golf Classic to help continue raise awareness as well as funds for our family foundation,” said Bruce Arians. “This is something I personally look forward to each year because of the impact we can have on these CASA kids, now and in the future. We are so thankful to all our sponsors, participants and celebrities for their contributions.”
The Arians Family Foundation supports and develops programs which strive to prevent and ameliorate the abuse and neglect of children. The Arians Family Foundation supports CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and specifically Voices For CASA of Maricopa County, which helps make sure that children who are involved in the court system, as a result of abuse or neglect by their families, receive the love and help they need.
This week, the Arians Family Foundation has also released its brand new logo. In partnership with State Forty Eight, an Arizona based company (named after Arizona became a state,) special shirts were created with a unique rendering of what symbolizes Coach Arians (signature Flex hat, headphones with mic and glasses.) The shirts were sold at the University of Phoenix Stadium this season and online with a percentage of sales going to the Arians Family Foundation. The Foundation has now partnered with State Forty Eight to utilize this unique symbolic rendering of Coach Arians as the new official Arians Family Foundation logo.
