The 2017 Temple Kol Ami Charity Gold Tournament is taking a swing at ending hunger in The Valley. A large portion of the proceeds benefit The Paradise Valley Food Bank Backpack Program, which provides over 16,000 meals a year to students in 11 Phoenix area schools. Backpacks are stocked with breakfast, lunch and snack items and then distributed to children who rely on school nutrition during the week. While these kids receive meals at school, many would otherwise go hungry on the weekends. With the support of the Backpack Program, they return to school on Monday ready to learn.
