Golf Tournaments & Support in the U.S. :
Over the past three years, the Foundation has received support from thousands of individual and corporate donors. Many have asked about ways they can continue to give and how to involve others. We want you to know about a special initiative taking place in April 2013, in which you might like to participate.
April is World Autism Awareness Month. Some clubs are supporting autism awareness and the Els Center of Excellence by hosting a golf event during April at which the club charges a nominal fee ($10 to $20), in addition to the usual greens/cart fees. Funds generated by this special initiative will support the Center of Excellence and its global digital learning programs.
Ernie has autographed a British Open flag that will be framed and sent to the club that raises the most funds, as a visible expression of appreciation for the club’s support for autism awareness and the Els Center of Excellence.
If you are interested in hosting a fundraising event in April to benefit the Foundation and to support autism awareness, please contact Nicole Palladino at firstname.lastname@example.org.
