AIB Cancels the 2020 Annual Richard J. Monaco Tee Off for Blindness Golf Tournament

To our valued partners, it is with great sadness that Arizona Industries for the Blind (AIB) has decided to cancel the 2020 Annual Richard J. Monaco Tee Off for Blindness golf tournament due to the continued spread of coronavirus (COVID 19).

We want to thank everyone for their strong commitment to our tournament. Year after year, your organization has committed time, resources, and financial support to help AIB improve the lives of those who are blind or visually impaired.

Arizona Industries for the Blind is a nonprofit 501(C) (3) agency whose mission is “to inspire individuals who are blind to pursue their maximum potential through creating, sustaining and improving employment while providing the highest quality products and services.

Even though the tournament is cancelled, your support of AIB’s program is essential, maybe even more so this year.

Sponsorships to the golf tournament help Arizona Industries for the Blind:

  • Deploy assistive technology that empowers people who are blind to reach their maximum potential
  • Create professional development programs that builds a competent and diverse workforce
  • Positions AIB for growth of dignified jobs for tomorrow

Monaco Tee Off for Blindness golf tournament, you or your organization can still make a difference by participating in one of our many sponsorship opportunities.

If your organization has already sponsored this year’s event, we will be happy to refund the entire amount, a portion of it, or even carry it forward for next year’s tournament.
