Golf Fore Autism, presented by Landmark Charities for the eighth consecutive year, will take place at Sweetwater Country Club in Sugar Land on October 2. Proceeds benefit the local autism nonprofit, Hope For Three which provides resources and support to families with autistic loved ones.
Golfing and networking are only part of the fun while taking on both courses, doubling the impact in raising funds and awareness. Creative contests at various holes, lunch, food on the courses (thanks to Lopez Mexican Restaurant and Smokehouse BBQ), live and silent auctions, incredible raffles, wine pull, and more, engage supporters during the dinner and awards ceremony immediately following the tournament.
“Participating in this golf tournament can change a child’s future along with the well-being of their family,” said Jessica Jubin, Hope For Three Philanthropy Director. “Funds raised aid in accessing life-changing treatments and therapies families may not otherwise acquire due to high-cost or inaccessibility.”
Event sponsors, OCuSOFT, Regions Bank, Trusted Senior Specialists, GFL Environmental, Cooltime Services, Albemarle Foundation, Liberty Engine-South Texas, and more supporters offer individual play for $150, a team of four is $600, and numerous sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available. Hope For Three is accepting all donations or bottles of wine valued at $50, or above, for the impressive wine pull. Registration begins at 9 a.m. with breakfast sponsored by First Watch, The Daytime Cafe. The tournament starts at 11 a.m. To register a team, sign up as a sponsor, volunteer, or donate, visit, www.hopeforthree.org/events/golf-fore-autism-23/
