You will have the opportunity to enjoy 18 holes of golf, lunch, hole contests & prizes, a cocktail reception (open bar), and finally an Awards Dinner featuring great food, a 50/50 raffle, and silent auction. Can't make it for golf? Join us for our Cocktail Reception & Awards Dinner with admission tickets available for purchase.
  • Your participation in this event directly impacts the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities serviced by Integrated Living, Inc. Donations are used for outings, therapy equipment, and other special events for the persons served. Integrated Living has even been able to purchase and train a therapy puppy named Bentley.
  • Funds raised by previous golf outings have also allowed Integrated Living, Inc. to purchase a new building used as an activity center. This activity center has an indoor pool, media room, massage/sensory room, art room where art classes are offered weekly, and an occupational therapy play room. Individuals serviced by Integrated Living, Inc. are able to utilize the activity center for free at any point during the week. Donations have also been used to purchase winter coats, clothing, furniture, etc. for individuals who are in desperate need but do not have funds to purchase such items.

They believe in dignity and respect for all individuals regardless of sex, race, physical and/or cognitive capabilities, physical stature, national origin, religion, sexual orientation or any other diverse characteristics: "Diversity is to be embraced as bringing strength to the organization on many levels."
