Roy Graydon wins a 2017 Mercedes-Benz

Roy Graydon is the winner of the DMCF 2017 Mercedes-Benz Raffle.

Roy Graydon is the lucky winner whose name was plucked from the bowl during the drawing for the DMCF 2017 Mercedes-Benz Raffle held in January. 

"When I got the call, we were just heading into a movie," Roy said. "My reaction was 'Are you kidding me?!!!' When I got off the phone, my wife said to me, ’It was probably a telemarketing call.' It wasn’t until the next day that we actually said, ‘Yup, this is for real!’ " 

"I am 100% in support of the goals and objectives of the Desert Mountain Community Foundation," Roy went on to say. "I think that you do very good work and I will contribute again."

The DMCF Board of Advisors sponsored the DMCF 2017 Mercedes-Benz Raffle as part of their effort to build an endowment, making it possible to award at least $25,000 annually in perpetuity.


DMCF and Pinnacle Aviation collaborate again
to raise money for scholarships

DAN WOLSKI

The Desert Mountain Community Foundation and Scottsdale-based Pinnacle Aviation, in partnership with the Desert Mountain Golf Professionals, presented the Third Annual Pinnacle Aviation Putting Challenge fundraising event with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the DMCF Scholarship Fund.

Saturday, April 1, was a cool and beautiful Arizona day, with Putting Challenge participants competing on the 20-putt Cochise/Geronimo putting green during Desert Mountain’s golf product Demo Day. Each golfer donated $100 for 20 putts—5 putts on four designated putting holes.

Dan Wolski, our 2017 Putting Champion won by sinking 12 of 20 putts. Dan's winnings included a $500 credit in the Desert Mountain Golf Shop, along with a beautifully inscribed silver-plated Champion’s trophy. He joins 2015 Champion Greg Castor and 2016 Champion Keith Reese in the record book.

Dan also earned a shot at the 50-foot putt to win an all-expense paid, luxury private jet trip for eight to his choice of Bandon Dunes, Pelican Hills or Jackson Hole, valued at over $50,000. Dan lined up and put a good stroke on the long putt. The ball rolled smoothly on-line, breaking slightly toward the hole from left to right coming to rest short of the cup. It was a gallant attempt and a fun showing for the cheering spectators. /p>

Each of the contestants who participated in the Third Annual Pinnacle Aviation Putting Challenge received a dozen Titleist Pro V1x golf balls and their names were entered into a raffle for a putter or driver. Chris Wilson was the lucky raffle winner and chose a driver.



Last year's Expo was a resounding success

The Desert Mountain Community Foundation, together with the Desert Mountain Club, Inc., the Desert Mountain Master Association and DMCF's Strategic Partner, Russ-Lyon|Sotheby's International Realty at Desert Mountain, presented the 2016 DMCF Expo in October. The event showcased businesses that provide services to enhance your lifestyle, while helping to grow the Scholarship Fund benefiting Desert Mountain employees and their families.

The Expo presented opportunities to meet friends, taste “old school” cocktails, enter individual vendor drawings and, of course, sample wonderful food. Thanks to participating vendors, raffle ticket buyers and donors, the financially successful Expo raised over $85,000 for the DMCF Scholarship Fund.
