PHOENIX — The Scottsdale 20/30 Club, an independent nonprofit organization that threw fundraisers to help local children’s charities, rebranded in July but is keeping the same mission.

The new name is “The Saguaros,” which took effect July 1, according to a press release.

All members of the organization reapplied and were accepted after the rebrand.

“We have grown significantly since The Scottsdale Active 20/30 Club was first founded in 1987,” Saguaros President, Evan Weishar said in a statement. “Last year, we raised nearly $2 million through our signature fundraising events – a record for the organization. As a collective team, we all decided the time was right to establish ourselves as an independent organization dedicated to serving Arizona’s children.”

The fundraising events Scottsdale 20/30 Club will remain the same: NiteFlite, Brokers for Kids and Agents Benefiting Children. NiteFlite, a golf tournament and gala at McCormick Ranch, is set for Nov. 11-12.

“The Saguaro is the perfect symbol for our new organization,” Weishar said.

“The iconic Saguaro clearly demonstrates our connection to the home state we serve and symbolizes the strength and longevity we have established over the past 35 years. We’re looking to build on a solid foundation of serving Arizona children’s charities and continuing to serve the community far into the future.”

The Saguaros announced they have granted $500,000 to Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation, payable over two years. The organization’s charity partners include Future for Kids, Mikey’s League, Child Crisis Arizona and Gabriel’s Angels, according to their website.

We want to hear from you.
