Jewish Family & Children’s Service announced that Scott Harkey, founder and chief executive officer of The Harkey Group, will chair the nonprofit organization’s inaugural Puttin’ for a Purpose fundraising event 6:30-9:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28, at Putting World in Scottsdale, 16259 N. Scottsdale Road.
Harkey is a marketing agency professional whose clients have included brands such as Airbnb, Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, Reebok, the Arizona Lottery, Diet Pepsi and more.
Puttin’ for a Purpose will raise funds to help JFCS provide life-changing and lifesaving services to more than 40,000 Valley-area children and adults. The first-time event will see putters of all skill levels compete in two rounds of putting competition at the indoor facility while having food developed by chef Michael Patton, craft beverages and the chance to win prizes.
“JFCS plays an important role in the Valley by providing healthcare services, senior programming, foster teen services, domestic violence programs, and more to people no matter their age, faith or background,” says Harkey. “The organization played a key role in my own life when my wife and I adopted a child. I’m excited to be able to give back.”

The event consists of two rounds. The first round consists of all participants playing 18 holes and the person with the lowest score will win a prize. In round two, all participants will get one shot to attempt to sink a 50-foot long hole-in-one for a chance to win a major prize.
