Golf Tournament to Benefit Latino Students Attending The University of Arizona Health Sciences

  • HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO GOLF AT THE SEWAILO GOLF CLUB AT THE CASINO DEL SOL AND ALSO HELP A WONDERFUL CAUSE:
  • Chicanos Por La Causa 21st Southern Arizona Scholarship Golf Tournament presented by Food City in partnership with BlueCross BlueShield of Arizona to benefit The University of Arizona Health Sciences (UAHS). Education is the greatest economic equalizer that enables qualified talent to enter the marketplace. Unfortunately, Arizona suffers from a significant deficiency of minority healthcare professionals. With a population that is 35 percent Latino and Native American, this deficiency is made even more pronounced by the lack of a diverse biomedical and health-care workforce that is representative of the population it serves. 

  •             The tournament is CPLC’s main fundraiser in Southern Arizona supporting scholarships to be awarded to ethnic-minority health sciences students pursing degrees in medicine, nursing, pharmacy, or public health at the UAHS, to increase and diversify leaders in healthcare.

CPLC is committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to pursue the solid foundation that an education provides. Starting in 1991, CPLC established a Scholarship Program that has awarded scholarships with a value in excess of $3,600,000. In addition to maintaining high academic success, the CPLC scholars donate approximately 1,400 community service hours.
