“I am extremely excited to launch the Patrick Peterson Celebrity Golf Tournament at Camelback Golf Club in Scottsdale. I’ve been playing in Celebrity Golf Tournaments for a few years now, and I’m thrilled to be able to host my own! I am really looking forward to doing something I love with close friends, while making a difference in the lives of countless children,” said Patrick Peterson, founder of the Patrick Peterson Foundation for Success. “Foundation for Success aims to provide low-income and inner city youth with opportunities and resources to reach their full potential. The proceeds raised from this weekend event will help us continue working towards that mission.”

Since its launch in November 2013, the Patrick Peterson Foundation for Success has raised more than $250,000 in support of signature community outreach programs and initiatives and has impacted the lives of more than 36,000 youth. Patrick and his Foundation have already launched three “Patrick’s Corners” at three Title I Public Schools in Phoenix, and plan to launch more in the coming years.
