While the Canutillo Alumni Foundation for Education had to suspend its annual golf tournament this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the alumni are still planning to award college scholarships and are asking for support.
The 2020 golf tournament, sponsored by Charlie Clark Nissan, was already postponed to July 17 from its original date in May, and CAFÉ hoped to hold it at Butterfield Trail Golf Club. The permanent closure of Butterfield Trail also added to the misfortune.
CAFÉ, a fund under the Paso Del Norte Community Foundation, believes that to protect the health and safety of the event participants, it is best to call off the event this year and plan for a date in 2021. But, the group is determined to do all that it can to sustain its scholarship program.
“We are disappointed that we could not hold this important event that provides much-needed assistance for our Canutillo and Northwest students,” Armando Rodriguez, CAFÉ Golf Tournament organizer said. “But, we are hopeful that through the generous support of our regular dedicated tournament sponsors and the community, our students will get the help they need to go to college.”
Anyone interested in contributing any amount to the scholarship program is encouraged to visit the CAFE’ donation page via the PDN Foundation. Donations of $1,000 or more will have the opportunity to have a scholarship acknowledgment in the name of their choice.
CAFÉ also has a monthly and annual giving membership program where members make regular automatic contributions with a credit card or payroll deduction for Canutillo ISD employees. To learn more and join CAFÉ, click here.
