Dependable in the Community: 2017 Tucson Conquistadors Classic

Dependable Health Services was proud to be a sponsor of the 2017 Tucson Conquistadors Classic. The annual PGA Tour Champions tournament is held by The Tucson Conquistadores, a civic fund-raising organization established in 1962. All event proceeds benefit youth athletic programs in Southern Arizona.

Dependable’s own President & CEO, Joe Schifano, and CFO, Tom Pepping, participated in the pro-am game on Thursday at the Omni Tucson National Golf Resort. Then Friday through Saturday, the whole executive crew joined the cheering crowds for the Pro tournament. They shared great food, drinks, and information about working at Dependable Health Services with coworkers, friends, and prospective RNs, LPNs, and PTs – several have already accepted positions with the company!

Despite competition from the NCAA Tournament, and the unseasonably high temperatures, the turnout at the Classic was fantastic. Popular players like Couples and Stricker, attracted large groups of fans following them from hole to hole. Tom Lehman took advantage of rookie Steve Stricker’s late mistakes on Sunday to win the Tucson Conquistadores Classic for his 10th PGA TOUR Champions victory.

It was a fun time and there was a lot of money raised for the community through The Conquistadors. Dependable Health Services is truly delighted with the success of the event and to have been a sponsor and participant!
