Golf for Autism

It's definitely been a little crazy 'round here.  A few weeks ago, Hubs and I participated in (ok, he participated in and I volunteered for) the Golf for Autism, a local golf outing which raises money for Autism Speaks.  The fellas (and a few ladies) played 18 holes at the beautiful Indian Springs Country Club in Marlton, NJ.  (Hey, are you in the local area - NJ/PA/DE/NY - and want to participate next year?  Drop me a line and I will get you in touch with my friends who set the wonderful fundraiser up!)   I've included a photo of the guest of honor, their son, Evan, who has Autism.

All proceeds from the golf outing, the beer sales (lol), the 50/50 and the silent auction all go to Autism Speaks.  So far, the tally of funds raised is $4,000 and climbing.  Golf for Autism will touch base when they have a final number in for the donation.

Beechwood Landscape Architecture and Construction was the Platinum Sponsor for the event.  Besides building beautiful landscapes and "stay-cation" areas for homeowners to enjoy, they take pride in sponsoring community events that are close to their hearts.  Beechwood frequently sponsors youth organizations in the surrounding communities, participates in community and civic events; generally trying to embody the spirit of community by helping out and pitching in whenever they are able.

The Volunteers (some of them!)

Always a good time!
If you are local or want to be in our area on September 16, 2011, the Camden Riversharks are participating in a fundraiser to benefit "Golf for Autism".  See the flyer attached below - you need to purchase the tickets online and there are specific instructions on how to do so.  The tickets are only $11 each and $5 from each ticket gets donated directly to Golf for Autism.  A great way to enjoy a fall evening and support a great cause!
