Carefree-based Foothills Caring Corps canceled its annual charity golf event scheduled for December 7 at Mirabel Golf Club, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Safety for all is our top priority,” Executive Director Robin Cochran said. “While we are sad to cancel this year’s event, we have determined that a large group gathering and the current health risks would go against our goal of keeping the community safe and healthy.”
Canceling the golf tournament leaves a hole in the budget that the organization hopes to fill with contributions. Last year’s tournament generated revenue in excess of $100,000 that was put to work in the Foothills area:
•Home delivery of nutritious meals.
•Providing medical transportation for critical care.
•Shopping errands for those unable or fearful of going out.
•Minor home repairs to help keep neighbors safe at home.
•Friendly visiting calls and “Spread Joy Convoy” for isolated neighbors.

For more than 20 years, the Foothills Caring Corps has helped older adults and individuals with disabling conditions who reside in the Northeast Foothills community to remain living in their homes.
