The Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson is grateful to Rory McIlroy and the Rory Foundation’s 6 Bags Project for featuring our organization’s logo on Rory’s golf bag during the Accenture Match Play Championship in Tucson from February 18 – 24. Through Rory’s generosity, our kids received worldwide recognition, club members were made special guests at Rory’s press conference and had an opportunity to meet and greet Rory, and we will receive the proceeds from the auction of Rory’s golf bag.
