Both sons are up and coming professional golfers and Tom Lehman couldn’t have seen a better opportunity to play with his son and raise money for his favorite charity at the same time. The Triplett’s played for Feeding Phoenix while the Lehmans raised money for Elevate Phoenix, a local non-profit organization providing 24/7 mentoring for at-risk youth.
“After years of being involved with many charitable organizations, I really focus nearly singularly now on Elevate Phoenix,” said Lehman. “There are so many kids in this country who are lacking in opportunities and in guidance in their lives, that an organization like Elevate Phoenix that provides mentorship and leadership from an adult to a kid who needs it is my passion and Elevate does it better than anybody.’
Along with compelling golf action, the program features Q&A with the players during the round, a skins game within the match and closest to the pin prize holes. Viewers have a chance to join in on the action and win a once-in-a-lifetime prize too.

“Elevate Phoenix is so grateful for the support of the Father’s Day Match for a Cause,” said Elevate Phoenix President Ed Beasley. “During these uncertain times we continue to serve the most at-risk youth, all while charitable giving remains down. With Tom Lehman’s unending support and the event’s donation, we will continue to be available for our youth 24 hours a day and witness the remarkable and positive changes in their lives.’
The ability to host an event on Father’s Day for an organization that provides mentorship opportunities holds special meaning for Tom Lehman .
“What an opportunity, a blessing and a responsibility it is to be a father”, Lehman said. “Let’s be thankful for the fathers that we have. For those of us who had fathers that were very involved in our lives, we are so blessed for that. For those who didn’t have a father that was involved in their life, that is a sadness I wish that no one has to go through, so I would say make up for it by being the greatest father ever.”
