This is NOT your average golf tournament.
[dropcap style=”dropcap2″]N[/dropcap] ow in its 6th year, with the incredible support of people like you, the Annual Saccomaniacs Charity Golf Tournament has already raised close to $115,000 to support autism research awareness and family support programs.
- Funding local community organizations who work directly with the autism community
- Raising awareness about autism and its impact on families and society and bringing hope and resources to those who live with autism every day.
Along with my family, I organize this event in honour of my son, Luke, who has autism, but also in support of the tens of thousands of Canadian children, youth and adults who live with autism every day.
The event is scheduled for Friday August 22nd, 2014 on the Ridge Course at the prestigious Northview Golf & Country Club in Surrey. Foursomes, event and hole sponsorships, prize donations – any support you can offer would be appreciated.
Autism is a complex brain disorder that inhibits a person’s ability to communicate and develop social relationships. Another child is diagnosed every 20 minutes.
Autism is a mystery – a puzzle. We do not know what causes autism, how to prevent it or how to cure it. We do know that one out of every 88 children will be diagnosed with autism and that number is 4 times higher for boys than girls. We know that rates of autism diagnoses are more prevalent than pediatric AIDS, cancer and diabetes combined. We know that children, youth and adults are all impacted differently by autism – some more profoundly than others.
With your help, together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle.
