2018 MLCC Charities Golf Classic
May 11, 2018. This year, MLCC Charities played host to a golf fundraiser to benefit not only Horses Help but also Lead Guitar. Lead Guitar is a non-profit organization that brings classical guitar instruction to lower income high school students. Although Lead Guitar is based in Tucson, they are in numerous schools in the greater Phoenix area. This year MLCC Charities will be presenting checks to these two organizations – totaling $56,000.

Major League Conditioning Centers (MLCC) has been in the business of helping people achieve their fitness goals for over two decades. It is also recognized as a business that accepts the obligations and responsibilities to the community and society at large. As a small Phoenix based business, Major League Conditioning Centers has devoted their time and efforts to help people all over the world.
In January 2005, MLCC conceived an idea to help the people that were ravaged by the tsunami the previous month. Within five weeks of the natural disaster, Major League Conditioning Centers had organized and executed a charity golf tournament, subsequently presenting a check for $13,100 to the Salvation Army.
In August of that year, another natural disaster struck in the form of a category 3 hurricane, the infamous Katrina. Once again, Major League Conditioning Centers sprang into action organizing yet another charity golf tournament. Six weeks later, MLCC presented another check to the Salvation Army in the sum of $27,350. With that, the Major League management team knew they had found a “second calling”.
2 ½ years later, MLCC was once again called upon to help. This time it hit closer to home. A dear client and pillar of the community passed away suddenly leaving a husband and 2 small special needs children to cope with the death. The success of the first two charity golf tournaments gave rise to host a third event. In March 2008, six weeks after her death, MLCC presented a $10,000 check to the education fund that had been set up for the young boys.
September 2011 marked two milestones for MLCC owner, Bill Ross. The celebration of 25 years in the fitness business and the launching of his first book gave birth to the idea of a private party whereby a charitable organization would be the beneficiary. Thus, MLCC was honored to present Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona a $3000 donation.
April 2012, Major League Conditioning Centers played host to a golf tournament to benefit Ryan House, a Phoenix based, privately funded organization that provides respite and end-of-life care for children facing life-threatening conditions. The tournament was held at Whirlwind Golf Club, named 2011 Troon managed facility in the world. Bill Ross, owner of Major League Conditioning Centers presented a check to Jim Pierson and Nancy Flores, representatives of Ryan House, in the sum of $11,290.
April 25, 2013. For the second consecutive year, Major League Conditioning Centers hosted a charity golf tournament to benefit Ryan House. The tournament was held at The Legacy Golf Club followed by dinner at The Secret Garden. This year Bill Ross presented Executive Director, Julie Banks, with a check totaling $17,000.
June 4, 2014. Major League Conditioning Centers hosted a charity golf tournament to benefit Horse Help, an Arizona 501(c)3 premier therapeutic and recreational agency that serves the special needs population by providing activities to empower them to break through physical, cognitive and emotional barriers by using a unique collaboration of horses and people.. The tournament was held May 9th at The Pointe Tapatio at Lookout Mountain. This year Bill Ross presented Executive Director, Gregg Goodman, with a check totaling $32,497.81
May 15, 2015. For the second consecutive year Horses Help was the benefactor of the MLCC Charities Golf Classic 2015. This years tournament was held at Wildfire Golf Club with the pre and post tournament festivities taking place at Horses Help. Despite the weather, MLCC was able to raise $35,409.27.
May 13, 2016. MLCC Charities once again committed to helping Horses Help. The golf event was held at Wildfire Golf Club with the after-party festivities taking place at Horses Help. MLCC raised $50,000.00 to help “Build The Dream”.
May 12, 2017. Wildfire Golf Club and Horses Help became the centerpiece for the 2017 MLCC Charities golf event. $37826.37 was the final tally for the event.
