ETC Group’s Arizona office played in the 8th Annual Help Fill the Toy Closet Golf Tournament this past Saturday. The golf tournament’s proceeds go to Banner Children’s at Cardon Children’s Medical Center in Mesa, AZ. After last year’s 2017 Help Fill the Toy Closet charity event, the foundation donated $102,000 to the toy closets and The BIG Outside. The BIG Outside is an outdoor play space and healing garden that features a mini golf course at Cardon Children’s for patients and their loved ones.
The Help Fill the Toy Closet Foundation provides toys for children who have undergone a painful procedure or intimidating treatment like chemotherapy. After a procedure or treatment, a child gets to go to the toy closet and pick out their own toy that they get to take home. This little gesture boosts a child’s spirits and instills a positive memory about going to the hospital. Overall, the toys provide a child with a little hope that they didn’t have before.
