The Price Cutter Charity Championship took place July 23-26 at Highland Springs Country Club with no spectators in attendance. Things looked and felt much different on the course, but that did not stop The Arc of the Ozarks from Going Blue FORE Autism on Championship Sunday.
The Arc has sponsored Go Blue Fore Autism Championship Sunday for several years covering the course with blue ribbons and hosting spectators with a blue tent located on the 18th green. “This event brings so much awareness to the autism programs The Arc provides to the community,” stated Development Director, Danielle Wise. “We had to come up with a way to grab the attention of our community and educate them on our services.”
The Arc took to social media to spread awareness of Go Blue FORE Autism Championship Sunday. Many businesses throughout the community, local leaders, legislators, staff and clients posed in pictures wearing blue. Hashtags including: #autismawareness, #BlueTogether, #CommunitySupport and #BusinessesGoingBlue were shown on each post.
All funds raised from the Price Cutter Charity Championship benefit our No Limits Summer Camp program for children with disabilities. The community has rallied behind the 50 children’s charities involved in the tournament during this difficult time. Thank you to everyone who showed their support by “going blue” with us on Sunday!
