Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The mission of Pagnozzi Charities Youth Sports Scholarship Program is to open the door of athletic experience to disadvantaged youth. Our goal is to advance the well-being of youth by giving them the same opportunity as their peers and introducing them to positive life experiences.
Pagnozzi Charities was formally founded in 1999 by former University of Arkansas Razorback alumni and coach, Tom Pagnozzi. Pagnozzi Charities programs continue to make a huge impact on our community. The charity was conceived by Tom and then head baseball coach Norm DeBriyn as a way for â Pagsâ to give back to the program that launched his professional career. What began in 1991 as the Razorback Foundationâ s Celebrity Golf Tournament and Auction, eventually evolved into the Tom Pagnozzi Charity Golf Tournament, Banquet and Sports Memorabilia Auction. Now in its 15 th year, the annual event continues to be a gateway of support for Pagnozzi Charities to meet its charitable goals.
In addition to the support provided to the Arkansas Razorback Baseball program, with its separation from the Razorback Foundation in 1999 and the development of its own 501(c)(3) status, Pagnozzi Charities took on a new goal and new events.
The Pagnozzi Youth Sports Scholarship Program was created with a desire to extend the charitable arm of the organization to include disadvantaged youth throughout Arkansas, providing them with an open door to the same athletic experiences of their peers and following the Pagnozzi motto to â level the playing fieldâ .
Pagnozzi Charities has provided scholarships to over 1800 youth through the Pagnozzi Youth Sports Scholarship Program. With the aid of a very valuable support team that includes board of directors, leadership team, an executive director, the creation of an endowment fund, office support and numerous volunteers, the charity hopes to continue to increase its efforts significantly in the coming years.
