Spinato’s Pizzeria will sponsor the second annual Kenneth A. Spinato Golf Classic to benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Sentinels of Freedom.
The event will be Nov. 17 at The Orange Tree Golf Club, 10601 N. 56th St., Scottsdale. Registration begins at 7 a.m. with a shotgun start at 7:45 a.m. The entry fee is $150 per player ($600 for a foursome) and includes: a day of golf, a $50 Spinato's Pizzeria gift certificate, lunch and goodie bag. Awards will be given for the first, second and third place teams, longest drive, closest to the pin and hole-in-one. There will also be raffle prizes and silent auction items to benefit the selected organizations.
"Our inaugural event last year was a great success. Thanks to our dedicated, friends and guests, we were able to make donations to both the Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Sentinels of Freedom, two local organizations that are very important to our family and community," said Ken Spinato, president and founder of Spinato’s Pizzeria. "We are hoping to exceed our donation from last year and continue to help those in our community that are in need of care and support."
The Kenneth A. Spinato Foundation was established in 2009 with the mission to enhance the lives of others by giving back to the local community. The foundation builds upon the vision and values of three generations of the Spinato's family by encouraging the highest standards of service and leadership.
For those unable to golf, donations and auction items are also being accepted.

Today, Phoenix Children's is one of the 10 largest children's hospitals in the country and provides specialty and sub-specialty inpatient, outpatient, trauma, emergency and urgent care to children and families in Arizona and throughout the Southwest.
Sentinels of Freedom has provided life-changing opportunities for men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who have suffered severe injuries and now need the support of grateful communities to realize their dreams.
