DMCF and Pinnacle Aviation collaborate to raise money for scholarships

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

Saturday, March 24, 2018, was another beautiful Arizona day. Each Putting Challenge participant donated $100 for 20. Each contestant who participated was gifted a sleeve of Titleist Pro V1x golf balls and were entered in a raffle for a Scotty Cameron Select Newport 2.5 putter! (Won by Mr. Marvin Wenger!)

The initial rounds ended in a three-way tie – and a playoff for the championship! In the playoff, each participant received three-putt attempts on hole #1.  Mr. Caster went first and missed all three putts!  Ms. Yohe went second and missed all three putts!!  Mr. Enger went third and missed all three putts!!! With all three participants still alive, a second-round playoff was needed to crown a champion. 

Mr. Caster is a two-time champion also winning the title in 2015. The win included a $500 credit in the Desert Mountain Golf Shop, along with a beautifully inscribed silver-plated Champion’s trophy. Mr. Caster also earned a shot at the 50-foot putt to win an all-expense paid, luxury private jet trip for eight (8) to his choice of Bandon Dunes, Pelican Hills or Jackson Hole, valued at over $50,000. Mr. Caster lined up and put a good stroke on the 50 foot putt but the hole eluded him.
