Save the Date! The 5th Annual Pinnacle Aviation Putting Challenge will be held on March 20, 2019. Funds raised benefit the DMCF Employee Scholarship Fund. 

This year, the DMCF and Pinnacle Aviation are partnering with the Desert Mountain Club at the Cactus Classic. We are updating our format and will increase participation by being a part of this traditionally sold out Mountain event. The first prize remains the same, the winner of the putting challenge gets to take a shot at sinking a 50-foot putt. If successful, the prize is a $50,000 Private Jet Charter. 

FUN was the theme of The Home & Lifestyle Party benefitting the DM/DMMA Employee Scholarship Fund held on November 2, 2018.

200+ members of DM attended and 32 vendors paid between $1500 and $10,000 to sponsor scholarships. At this writing, the DMCF will net $60,000! Download the event program to see a complete list of the generous companies who supported this year's Home & Lifestyle Party.

Seven of this year’s scholars greeted attendees and personally thanked the vendors for their contributions. 

The DMCF has awarded $216,000 in six years to 76 students. Two new scholars sent thank you notes to the Board members of DMCF. Ryan Gamlin (left) will attend the AZ School of Real Estate and Business and states “I will never forget the help and opportunities that DM has offered and given me to make myself a better person for all those around me. I am forever grateful.” Jack Sachen (right), who attends Scottsdale Community College, says “The financial assistance you provided will be of great help to me. It will allow me to focus on learning and growing academically, as I concentrate more of my time on my studying.”
