Golfers from Elks Lodges around the state migrate to the cool country of Payson for one of the group’s annual benefits to help children in need. Money raised from the annual event helps the club members purchase clothing and shoes for the many children in the community who need assistance. The big tournament is not an Elks-only event, any golfer in the area or visiting may participate, however, the field is limited.

Although the Payson Unified School District is not considered an impoverished area similar to some of the districts in south Phoenix or big city ghettos, there are disadvantaged children locally who are in need of adequate school day clothing.
