The ARC successfully hosted its 18th Annual Memorial Golf Tournament on April 21, 2017. Despite afternoon storms, it was a great day for golf! ARC Board President Becky Pillsbury and Honorary Guest former NFL player Jerraud Powers welcomed the golfers to Redstone Arsenal. Doug Allen, General Manager at CSRA, Beverly Scherer, and Susan Klingel, Executive Director of the ARC, thanked everyone for their support raising much needed funding to help those with intellectual disabilities. Diane Thomas, a long time client of the Arc, served as the Honorary Marshall.
Over 200 golfers enjoyed a morning of golf at The Links at Redstone Arsenal which included:
- A mid-morning snack from Donatos Pizza
- A BBQ Lunch from The Links
- Team Prizes
- Over 140 door prizes donated from local and regional businesses
For the first time in ARC history, one of our golfers shot a hole-in-one! Johnny Osborne won a 4-night golfing trip to Pebble Beach, California. Congratulations Johnny!
