The Office of Philanthropy is proud to host events throughout the year that support the amazing work done every day at Northern Arizona Healthcare. We invite you to learn more about our events and sponsorship opportunities below

3rd Annual Northern Arizona Healthcare Scholarships & Awards Banquet

Each spring during nurses and hospital week, our office showcases distinguished nurses and health care workers who earn scholarships or awards funded by local individuals and corporations. We invite you to be an integral part of this celebration by investing in our most valuable resources – our staff – through a scholarship or award. Each scholarship or award requires a commitment of $30,000, which includes a $25,000 endowment and $5,000 expendable dollars to provide 5 years of scholarships or awards while the endowment grows. This impact would last in perpetuity, serving future health care workers and encouraging those who trained here, to stay here.

We will honor this gift by acknowledging you with a named scholarship and annual celebration with beneficiaries which is titled by Desert Financial Credit Union and supported by Swire Coca-Cola.

46th Annual Machine Solutions Run & Walk for Kids

It’s time to run (or walk) to benefit NAH’s Children’s Health Center (CHC). The 46th Annual event will take place in early August 3 at Fort Tuthill County Park in Flagstaff, AZ. This long-standing event, titled by Machine Solutions, is kicked off with the cherished kid’s dash and
followed by a 10k, 5k and 2k.

Bring your family and friends and join us in celebrating the lifechanging services offered by CHC to children in northern Arizona.

3rd Annual Northern Arizona Healthcare Open

Northern Arizona Healthcare is hosting the third annual NAH Golf in Fall 2024. This event is in support of elevating the care provided at Northern Arizona Healthcare.

We invite you to join us and welcome your support.

Mason Awards

Previously known simply as the Nurse and Tech of the Year Awards, this prestigious recognition was renamed in 2018 to honor Jessica (Hanson) Diefenbach’s son, Mason, who was lost in a tragic accident. Jessica and her family are profoundly grateful by the care they both received at Flagstaff Medical Center on that terrible day.

The Mason Awards seeks to capture and highlight the spirit of nursing that makes a real difference in human lives and families.

We invite you to support this special recognition event as a sponsor.

2nd Annual Dawn Tebelak Memorial Golf Tournament

Northern Arizona Healthcare is hosting the second annual Dawn Tebelak Memorial Golf Tournament at the Sedona Golf Resort on October 5, 2023. This event directly supports the Dawn Tebelak Memorial Scholarship which is awarded to NAH employees in the Verde Valley who work in MedSurg and/or ICU departments. The scholarship fund was established in honor of nurses who cared for Dawn in her final days thanks to a generous donation made by grateful patient family member, Larry Tebelak, Dawn’s father, as well as Dawn’s family and friends.

We invite you to join us and welcome your support.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for all events!
