On Thursday, April 1st, we had 20 participants for our club’s bi-monthly Zoom/Hybrid meeting. We welcomed Chance Cozby, Executive Director of The Thunderbirds. The Thunderbirds host the WM Phoenix Open and provide a tremendous amount of charitable contributions to the area. We learned how they were able to safely conduct the Open this year. Normally the event has a $390m economic impact in the region in-line with the Super Bowl. It was equally great to hear how they were able to donate heavily into the community with their emergency fund during the pandemic. We had 9 people in attendance and had a delicious breakfast catered by Chompie’s!
