At Pendleton Place’s Smith House, young women live together in a warm and welcoming environment where they have the opportunity to interact with each other and supportive adults. In addition to basic needs like food and clothing, Smith House residents are provided with counseling services, structured educational support, life skills training, financial literacy classes, civic engagement and other hands-on opportunities aimed at preparing these vulnerable youth for successful, independent living after foster care.

At Smith House, girls are encouraged, comforted and empowered by trained professionals. They benefit from experiencing a safe and loving environment while also becoming equipped for a positive future.

Pictured here, is Sierra, one of Pendleton Place’s Smith House residents. Sierra had a goal of purchasing a new car before leaving for college in August. She worked really hard to save money and do her research throughout the whole process and we are so proud of her!!

By donating to Arizona’s Children’s Charities, you are helping Pendleton Place Inc. provide a safe and loving environment to make it possible for milestones like this to happen!

Greetings Greenville! As we all weather this most difficult time, my hope and prayer is that you all are staying healthy and safe.
This October, a big part of our Musical year will be put on hold. "Rock'n On The Runway" has become an annual highlight for us all, as we get to do what we Love most, with and for friends that we Love so much.
It has been my distinct pleasure to be invited to join this "Family," and my gratitude is immeasurable. I cannot think of a more worthy cause. Being able to help the Children of Pendleton Place Inc. each year through the Joy of Music, fills me with pride and humility.
I am in High Hopes that next October will be one of Celebration, as we once again gather with you all...Remember "It’s All About the Kids!"

With Gratitude & Love,
John Regan

Our Mission

The Arizona’s Children’s Charities mission is to help promote lasting improvements in the lives of local abused, neglected and at-risk children. It is our vision and belief that by assisting these children we are investing in their futures and the future of our community because, “It’s All About the Kids!”

Now in our 22nd year, the Arizona’s Children’s Charities has been able to donate over $1.7 million dollars to children’s organizations throughout the Carolinas, such as Pendleton Place, Duke Children’s Hospital, and many more.

Our Story

Arizona’s Children’s Charities (AZCC), a 501(c)(3), was established six years ago in order to form an entity to raise funds through a celebrity concert and golf event. The goal was to fund Pendleton Place as the primary beneficiary, while allowing the group to add additional children-related charities to our support list. The charity was co-founded by Mark Craig, Kevin Cox, Troy Baldree and Mike Williams. Prior to that, the four were committed to the same mission as board members and community volunteers for 12 years.

Show More...

The main fundraising event originated as a golf tournament and ran for ten years until Mike and Troy attended a John Daly Celebrity Golf event in Mississippi and met Danny Seraphine (founding drummer Chicago), Tommy Thayer (KISS lead guitarist), Jack Blades (Nightranger front-man) and Rick Seratte (Foreigner/WhiteSnake). They performed a much smaller concert and were asked if they would do the same for the Greenville charity. When the musicians asked what AZCC’s mission was, it was stated that ‘It’s All About the Kids’ raising money for abused, neglected and at-risk children. It was unanimous. All of the guys said they would come perform a show in Greenville.

It was AZCC’s first shot at a show of this kind with big name musicians, and not feeling completely confident that all of them would actually show up, the event was not heavily marketed. It ended up being a very special, intimate event of about 300 people held under a tent in the parking lot of Arizona Steakhouse on Woodruff Rd. The concert was a huge hit. The musicians loved it and have been inviting their friends each year, making the AZCC band even bigger. And with a bigger band and more celebrities comes a bigger event. Now called Rock’n On The Runway, the celebrity concert is held at the Greenville Downtown Airport Jet Center and brings about 1000 people together to continue the mission of raising money for the kids.

There is still a golf tournament which remains sold-out year after year with a wait list. There are also many corporate and individual sponsors that make the event possible, as well as dozens of volunteers for both the concert and the golf tournament. In 2015, ScanSource stepped in as a Presenting Sponsor and has helped get the message out in a larger and more effective way, increasing the event’s stature in Greenville and the surrounding area.

Who We Support

Pendleton Place was founded in 1975 with one mission: to keep children safe and support families in crisis through prevention, assessment, and intervention.

Our goal at Prisma Health Children’s Hospital is to make the lives of children and families a little more joyful, even under the not-so-greatest of circumstances. We are able to do that with your generous donations.
