Date: 10/14/17 "3rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament"
OCA Greater Phoenix Chapter´s

We all know today's youth are tomorrow's leaders but most people are too busy to equip youth with the tools they need in order to be successful leaders. So we are inviting you to multitask for a cause – play golf and help our youth at the same time. You are invited to join with other businesses and organizations in the community in support of OCA Greater Phoenix's 3rd Annual OCA Charity Golf Tournament on October 14, 2017 at the McCormick Ranch Golf Club.

Your support is critical to sustaining the programs our youth need to thrive. Proceeds from the tournament are aimed at empowering our youth through impactful and informative programs like the Asian Pacific American Youth Leadership Training Program (APA-Y), civic engagement, and the OCA Internship program.
