Conquistadores still giving back with Tucson Classic

MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) - This tournament may have a new name, the Tucson Classic, and is played on a familiar course the Omni Tucson National Golf Resort.
But for the Tucson Conquistadores the mission is still the same, giving back to the community. Since 1962, the Conquistadores have helped young people in Southern Arizona get involved in sports. They have contributed $29 million to youth sports programs across the area. That number will go up at the once the Tucson Classic is completed.

The net proceeds from the Classic will go directly to youth charities in Southern Arizona, including the First Tee of Tucson, Boys and Girls Clubs, and Pima County Special Olympics.

The public can help by coming out to the tournament and donating to the charity raffles.

These include raffles for a 2015 Camaro or a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado truck. For more about the raffles click here - http://www.conquistadoresclassic.com/pages/2015-charity-raffle

Or for one lucky fan, they may get a chance to win $1 million, with the hole in one contest. For more how to participate in the hole-in-one contest click here - http://www.conquistadoresclassic.com/pages/million-dollar-hole-in-one-contest

Today is the final day of practice for the golfers. Wednesday and Thursday are the pro-am days and the tournament starts on Friday.

Public parking will be south of Ina and Thornydale, while preferred parking will be at Pima Community College Northwest campus.

It is $29 dollars for a one day pass this week and general parking is free.
