The Tiffany Challenge 72-hole golf event at the Oakwood Golf Course May 11 raised $17,000 for The Tiffany Foundation. The event was a huge success due mostly to the folks here in Sun Lakes who really stepped up, said Rowin Floth, co-chair of the event.
The Tiffany Challenge is part of a national fundraising effort, with similar events scheduled to take place across the country later this summer.
“The event was simple and fun for all who participated,” said Floth. “Players had to hit 72 balls into a hole, either on a putting green or playing traditional rounds of golf, or a combination of both. The idea was to have fun and raise funds for a great cause.”
The Tiffany Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2006 by Rowin and Paula Floth. The organization honors their daughter, Tiffany Floth Romero, who passed away after a courageous four-year battle with inflammatory breast cancer.
“Our foundation is different in that we are not funding research for a cure, but we are helping people in the fight now,” Floth said. The Tiffany Foundation provides grants to assist with paying child care, transportation, housing, medical and other expenses.
