Corporate sponsorships are available, offering big and small companies a chance to boost company brands and visibility at the event in front of thousands of participants and guests, especially with the video scoreboard promoting the “companies helping SDFC make a difference in the lives of Sun Devil families,” the release said.

Other sponsors include Four Peaks, Tito’s, Coca-Cola, Sun Devil Club, ASU-Young Professional Club, Cogburns, ‘Speak of the Devils’(podcast) and Ruby Red Media.

The SDFC also has partnered with the Sun Devil Club to help with athletic scholarships to student-athletes pursuing degrees in the medical and/or nursing programs at Arizona State University, according to the release.

With che collaborative efforts of the neighboring residential and business communities, the event will have plenty of food, drink, fun, friendly-competition and “bragging rights” for the tournament winners, added the release.

Sun Devil Family Charities is a 501©3 non-profit organization inspired by Joe Cajic, former 1994 offensive guard, iron man award winner, and captain of the ASU football team, who suddenly needed a life-saving bone marrow transplant.

After the community united to raise money and support, they recognized the ongoing need to help more ASU families, noted the release on how Sun Devil Family Charities was founded and has since provided grants and support to ASU families with financial hardships from unforeseen medical expenses.
