“The event was amazing, everyone had a good time,” said Jenkins who makes his off-season home in Phoenix, AZ. “It was a great opportunity to bring my friends together and have a lot of fun while supporting an important cause like The Moyer Foundation’s Camp Erin.”
The W Scottsdale donated the DJ, food and venue for the event. Their were great prizes for the top players who were able to keep their poker faces on including a 63" flat screen donated by Design First for the first prize winner. Congratulations Bill Hall of the Milwaukee Brewers!
The Moyer Foundation and Camp Erin team send our many thanks to Geoff, his event planning team and the W Scottsdale staff for all their hard work to make this event such a huge success. We are so grateful!
