Staatsburg, New York…On Thursday, June 21, 2018, Anderson Center for Autism will return to The Links at UnionVale in Lagrangeville for its annual golf classic, sponsored by Oldies 98.9 FM/WGNY Fox Radio. The event is expected to draw approximately 150 people and raise over $60,000 for the organization’s programs and services, which are designed to optimize the quality of life for people with Autism.

Said Kevin Kollar, Chair, Anderson Foundation for Autism, “More than 500 families benefit from the award-winning educational, vocational, and residential services provided by Anderson. The Golf Classic gives our entire community a chance to better understand why Anderson’s work is so important, how they make the difference for the 1 in 59 impacted by Autism, and how to help position the organization for continued success. Not only is the outing well-known for being a fun day on a beautiful course, but it really offers a chance to make a difference.”

Eric Gorman, Chair of Anderson Center for Autism Board of Trustees, continued, “With prevalence rates for autism spectrum disorder growing, there’s no question that most of us know someone whose life has been impacted. Events like the Anderson Golf Classic really help us raise funds to enhance the services that Anderson provides. You can get a day out on the course surrounded by good people while also helping us improve the quality of life for individuals with autism; what could be better than that?”

The outing will begin with registration and full breakfast at 8am followed by a 9am shotgun start (scramble format; full lunch served on the course), and at 2pm, golfers will enjoy cocktails, awards, dinner, and raffles. Tickets are $175 per person.
