With the NCAA Final Four coming to Phoenix this year, the Final Four Planning Committee reached out to state organization with the opportunity to give back to the community.

One of the groups approached was the Governor’s Youth Commission. One of the commissioners, Evan Grace of Maricopa, received a $1,000 grant for a community project.

He selected Pet Social Worker, a local rescue organization. He presented founder Kimberly Diedrich with $500 for spays/neuters and $500 for pet supplies for rescued animals. To keep it local, Evan asked Pet Club of Maricopa to provide a discount to extend the donation, and Nick Hale obliged. Hale also added two bags of dog food to the donation.

Evan would like to thank NCAA and Pet Club for the opportunity to help a great organization.
