In an emotional day and night, ClubCorp's Gainey Ranch Country Club in Scottsdale honored the lone Granite Mountain Hotshot survivor, Brendan McDonough, and raised more than $110,000 for the families of the Yarnell 19 who lost their lives fighting a fire. After the golf tournament, McDonough in turn thanked the community for their support, saying while we can't bring his brothers back, we can do our best to honor them and take care of their families. 

Yarnell

McDonough was met with a standing ovation at the reception of the Yarnell Fire Golf Fundraiser on August 2nd. He told the crowd of his first meeting with Gainey Ranch General Manager, Jim Murphy. "I was in a cafe in Yarnell, and I was on my way to a funeral, I sat down and ate breakfast by myself, and he recognized me and told me he wanted to help."
 
Raising over $110,000, with donations still continuing to climb, players paid anywhere from $100 to $1,000 to play a nine-hole round, with the money going to the Arizona 100 Club to benefit the families of the fallen firefighters.  An additional Fill-The-Boot-Campaign contributed to the overall funds raised, and will also be distributed to the Community of Yarnell. McDonough said donations are desperately needed for the wives and children of his fellow hotshots left behind. "There's a lot of children, unborn children, it's going to help a lot."
 
Gainey Ranch GM Murphy concluded with, "You see how many hugs they're giving him, the ovations they're giving him? He's a huge part of what we're doing today. We just want to show Brendan that we won't forget his brothers, which is exactly what he asked for."

Parents might say it’s the most wonderful time of the year, and kids might say it’s the worst. Can you guess what I’m taking about? No, Santa Claus isn’t coming to town; it’s back-to-school season! 

That time of year has rolled around again, and we wanted to help parents out with some back-to-school tips for 2013.

  • Having trouble helping your daughter pick out a first-day-of-school outfit? Check out Seventeen Magazine’s quick list of fall fashion trends for girls. She’ll be voted “Best Dressed” in no time!
  • Clothes, backpacks, pens – it can all add up! Try to avoid over-spending this month by shopping on tax-free weekends. Check out your state’s tax-free shopping weekend, and find out what is exempt and what isn’t. 
  • Unless the Seven Dwarves live at your house, you probably don’t want to be tasked with waking up Sleepy and Grumpy. Ease your kids back into those early mornings by slowly changing bed and wake-up times now.
    Smartie Pants
  • Here’s a sweet idea via Anthem Golf & Country Club! On the first day of school tuck a pack of Smarties into your child’s lunchbox with a note saying “Hey there, Smartie pants. Have a great first day!” 
  • And last but certainly not least, start the school year off right and help someone else in need. Buy an extra notebook, pack of pens or any new school supplies. ClubCorp’s Skyline Club in Southfield, MI is currently accepting donations – please contact Cynthia Wozniak for more information.
