The Ability Am Charity Golf Tournament
Thursday, May 5, 2016
A day of fun, competitive golf followed by the 19th Hole Cocktail Reception and Awards Ceremony.
The Ability Am Golf Tournament raises awareness and funds for VersAbility’s programs that help individuals with disabilities live, work, and thrive in our community. In its first two years, The Ability Am Golf Tournament raised more than $140,000 in support of people with disabilities. The championship golf course at Cedar Point is the setting for this handicapped, co-ed, best ball tournament comprised of four person teams and a play your own ball format. Golfers will enjoy Cedar Point’s challenging course and immaculate greens.
The public is invited to join us for the 19th Hole Cocktail Reception and Awards Ceremony. This event begins at 5:30 and includes Cedar Point’s delicious dinner buffet, acoustic music, and cash bars. The Awards Ceremony will begin approximately at 6:30 p.m. All golfers receive complimentary tickets to the event and additional tickets can be purchased for $35.
Proceeds from The Ability Am benefit people with disabilities served by VersAbility Resources. Your support allows 28 individuals with disabilities to work and receive services in our community as part of the Employment Services Program at VersAbility. Funding for the program was completely eliminated and VersAbility must now raise significant funds to ensure nobody loses access to the services they depend upon. Many people in the program have received supports at VersAbility for decades, some for over 49 years. In addition to the pride and independence that comes from earning their own wages, work allows people with disabilities to improve their overall health by engaging in ongoing physical activity and regular social interaction.
