The Country Club at DC Ranch to Host 2024 Annual Scholarship Foundation Dinner & Auction

The Country Club at DC Ranch is hosting the 5th annual 2024 Annual Scholarship Foundation Dinner & Auction, with a goal of reaching the $2 million mark in the Scholarship Fund.


Scottsdale, Arizona, April 3, 2024— The Country Club at DC Ranch, Scottsdale’s premier private country club, is excited to announce the 5th annual Scholarship Foundation Dinner & Auction on Friday, April 26th, 2024. This prestigious event aims to reach $2 million to support the Club’s Scholarship Foundation, which was established in the fall of 2019 to provide educational assistance to the employees and children of full and part-time employees. The foundation is committed to creating a sustainable fund that will enable the scholarship awards and benefits to increase in the future, with the ultimate goal of awarding up to $10,000 per student for full-time employees and up to $5,000 for part-time students.

The annual Scholarship Foundation Dinner & Auction has become a highly anticipated event for members of the Club who are passionate about supporting the employees and their families. The evening consists of a cocktail reception, gourmet dinner, and an interactive and fun  live auction featuring luxurious items and experiences donated by Members and local organizations. This exciting event has consistently raised funds to provide significant financial support to deserving students, enabling them to pursue higher education at an undergraduate college, university, or trade/vocational school. This year the event will be emceed by “auctiontainer” extraordinaire, Leticia Frye. We cannot wait to see her in action.

The Country Club at DC Ranch is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, meaning that contributions to the scholarship foundation are tax-deductible. This unique initiative was driven by the club’s Scholarship Foundation Board of Directors, which includes Buck Braund (President), Dan Brutto, Dana Jakel, John Misner, Polly Green, Joe Carrabino, and Bill Engvall. To ensure transparency and independence, the foundation partnered with the Arizona Community Foundation, which serves as an independent body to receive, review, and make recommendations to all qualified applicants.

Since its establishment, the Scholarship Foundation has awarded several scholarships to deserving students who have demonstrated an exemplary academic record, maintaining a minimum 3.0 GPA and good standing at their educational institution. Scholarship recipients are eligible for additional awards over a maximum of four years as long as they continue to meet these criteria. Each award has provided crucial financial support to cover tuition and other essentials, opening the doors to higher education for many deserving young scholars.
