2017 Will’s Warriors/JGB Tournament to Benefit Autism posted June 20th, 2017

       Irwin Marine is proud to be a sponsor again this year for Will’s Warriors/JGB Tournament to benefit Autism! The 2017 golf tournament will be held on June 26, 2017 at the Nashua Country Club. The event will include a 4-person scramble and awards reception following the golf. The tournament is partnered with the Brian McCoy Alvirne Woodsman Team Scholarship Fund to collect tax deductible contributions with proceeds being donated to the Ernie Els Foundation for Autism. 

      Autism affects 1 in 68 children in the United States. Ernie Els Foundation for Autism was established in 2009 by Ernie and Liezl Els to be a “game-changing resource in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorder". The world class golfer and his wife have devoted their efforts to The Els Center of Excellence. The 26-acre facility provides on-site education for 300 students as it is designed to be a global hub for education, research, outreach, therapy, adult services and recreation services.

   

“Mission: We are committed to better understanding the aspirations of people with autism spectrum disorder and helping them to fulfill their potential to lead positive, productive and rewarding lives, through:

  • Understanding the nature of ASD and facilitating the development and delivery of treatment therapies, educational programs, training programs, and recreational programs as well as residential and independent living programs
  • Ensuring the development of global outreach that will facilitate the sharing of best practices and programs
  • Raising awareness and promoting the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with ASD."

 

        Proceeds from the tournament are donated directly to the Ernie Els Foundation for Autism. Contributions allow for continuation of current and new programs that are leading examples of what should be available to people with Autism Spectrum Disorder across the world. Over the last two years, the Wills Warriors/JGB golf tournament has raised nearly $20,000.00 for this worthy cause. It is with honor that we are a sponsor for this event.
