SWINGING FOR A CAUSE!

FRANKLIN, TN (March 10, 2016) —  Open Arms Care Foundation will hold its 10th Annual Golf Tournament fundraising event on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, between 11:00am – 6:30pm, at the Forrest Crossing Golf Club in Franklin, Tennessee.  Open Arms Care is a non-profit organization, founded in 1989 to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to reach their maximum potential and lead dignified and meaningful lives.

This golf tournament is the largest annual fundraiser we hold in the Nashville area, so it is critical that we get the word out to all of those in our community,” said Sue Cook, Executive Director at the Nolensville Support Office.   “As a non-profit organization, Open Arms Care relies on our sponsors and supporters for their participation and donations.  It allows us to fund our special programs, which are extremely beneficial to our clients, as well as maintain the homes where they reside.   Supporting our cause while enjoying a day of golf is a win-win for everyone.”

The day’s events will include a silent auction, raffle, prizes, award ceremony and live entertainment.  Lunch and dinner will be provided for all participants.  Registration begins at $150 for single players and $600 for a foursome. Additional information regarding the cost for larger groups and for sponsorship opportunities are outlined on the organization’s website:  www.openarmscare.org.  All tournament fees and other contributions are tax deductible with 100% of the proceeds directly benefiting our clients.

Open Arms Care has four support offices throughout the state (Nolensville, Memphis, Knoxville and Chattanooga); each has multiple residents that are home to the clients.  Open Arms Care was the first in Tennessee to bring a unique art program, Art Realization Technologies (A.R.T.), to the state.  This ground breaking art program called Flying Brushes, which provides its clients with special needs access to innovative techniques and technologies, allows them to create art.  For more information on Open Arms Care and its programs, go to www.openarmscare.org
