Friends and family hosted a benefit golf tournament at the El Rio Golf Course for PGA Professional Bobby Gaona to assist him and his wife out financially, due to the medical bills he has incurred since being diagnosed with Lung Cancer. His good friend Jerry Leyva coordinated the event with a lot help from family and friends, such as the Tucson Conquistadores, First Tee of Tucson, Tucson City Golf and his fellow PGA members.
“Bobby might not be a wealthy man, but he’s generous in other ways, I’ve never seen him treat people with anything but kindness,” says Jerry Leyva, who plays golf regularly with Bobby in the El Rio Men’s Club.
The event had over 150 golfers and raised more then $10,000!
