Tucson, AZ- Coaches for Charity began in 2009 as part of an outgrowth of a promotion to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of The Lodge at Ventana Canyon. Now they are a recognized non-profit charity that raises funds through special events and athletics to support young people and encourages healthy, active lifestyles. Coaches for Charity awards academic scholarships to students/athletes of all abilities and provides support to community organizations.
The banquet was on Saturday, August 12, 2017 at the Doubletree Hotel. Coaches for Charity honored Ricky Hunley who served as the keynote speaker. Hunley is the first University of Arizona Football Player to be selected as a Consensus All American. He played in the NFL for the Broncos, Cardinals and the Raiders. In addition to the Keynote address by Mr. Hunley, the head coaches from each team were interviewed on stage.
The football teams participating in the Kickoff Classic were: Ironwood Ridge, Marana, Nogales, Palo Verde, Pueblo, Rincon/University, Sunnyside and Tanque Verde. CREST is thrilled to be a sponsor at this event. We are excited for next year’s Kickoff Banquet!
