More than 40 Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club members recently celebrated a greenhouse opening at nonprofit Sunshine Acres Children’s Home, 3405 N. Higley Road in Mesa.
The project was funded as part of an ongoing philanthropic initiative of Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club, making it a joyous celebration for everyone involved, according to a release.
Home to more than 2,000 children since 1954, Sunshine Acres Children’s Home provides long-term housing, support and educational programs for children who are separated from their parents. Go to sunshineacres.org.
"The greenhouse project will amplify the children’s learning opportunities within the organization and maximize the development of their potential, abilities and interests before entering adulthood," the release states.
“Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club is proud to work with Sunshine Acres Children’s Home and support its efforts to provide long-term housing and developmental opportunities for children in need,” Mark Gurnow, general manager of Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club, said in the release. “Philanthropy is at the heart of our community, and we are honored to be able to work with an organization that is making a difference in the lives of today’s youth.”
Giving back to the community is a core pillar of Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club’s membership, and Sunshine Acres Children’s Home has been one of the club’s long-term nonprofit partners. Other support includes hosting a spring shopping spree with 22 Sunshine Acres’ residents, raising funds to purchase an outdoor movie theater screen and projector and donating all unreturned lost and found items to the organization.
Located at the foot of the Superstition Mountains in Gold Canyon, Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club is a private club offering both golf and social memberships. The luxury, guard-gated community includes village-style neighborhoods, award-winning homes and two Nicklaus Design golf courses. Go to superstitionmountain.com.
