11th Annual Shoopy Scramble Charity Golf Tournament

Monday, April 22, 2024 | 9AM Shotgun Start

Join us at Desert Willow for our 11th Annual Shoopy Scramble!

Thank you to all who joined us for the 10th Annual Shoopy Scramble!

After surviving melanoma, I have made it my mission to raise awareness of the dangers of unprotected sun exposure, the importance of early detection, and the many ways to practice sun safety. I am so grateful for the continued support of the PGA Tour Superstore, my friends and my colleagues at Desert Willow Golf Resort and, most importantly, I am overwhelmed by the personal thanks I have received from people who, because of our outreach, paid attention and were tested in time. This alone has made my efforts all worthwhile. I want to do more.”  – Brett Shoopman. Tournament Creator and Chair – Annual ‘Shoopy Scramble Charity Golf Tournament


In 2013, Brett (Shoopy) Shoopman, a two-time malignant melanoma survivor, founded ‘The Shoopy Scramble’ to raise funds to support services specifically related to skin cancer detection, treatment, and education. To date, over $250K has been raised with donations provided to the Melanoma Research Foundation and Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer where the funds have helped to support:

  • The purchase of a Canva Vectra 3D Imaging Machine
  • Critical Patient Support Services
  • Outreach efforts to educate the Community on Melanoma prevention and awareness.

We are sincerely proud and grateful to have been The Shoopy Scramble’s donor recipients since the very beginning and we look forward to celebrating next year’s 10th Anniversary together. To date, donations from the Shoopy Scramble have supported free skin cancer screenings to close to 1000 people and almost half of those have required some sort of follow-up care. The tournament donations are also used to support programs focusing on prevention detection and treatments options for cancer patients.”
“They have given us the resources to screen close to 1,000 people for skin cancer and melanoma. They have also allowed us to educate and support those diagnosed with melanoma.”  Further remarking “You save lives. That’s what you’ve done. You are saving lives.“- Alison Mayer Sachs. Director, Community Outreach & Cancer Support Services, Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center

With Special Thanks to our Title Sponsor
