The "Driving Fore Autism" Golf Outing was established in 2015 by the family of Garrett Dennis, who own Rock Bottom Stone Supply. His mother, Jennifer Belcher along with her amazing friend, Donna Anderson, co-chair this event which has become the largest fundraiser for ASRC. Garrett's family shared ASRC's vision of starting a Life Skills Center where teens and adults could learn skills to gain independence regardless of where they are on the spectrum. Driving Fore Autism was then born and since 2015, there have been five golf outings with proceeds of around $270,000 all of which all went toward construction costs for our Life Skills Center, "Garrett's Place", which was completed in May 2017.
Our September 23rd, 2019 5th Annual Driving Fore Autism Golf Outing netted nearly $70,000 of income!!!! Thank you to our participants, donors, sponsors and volunteers for a record setting year!!!

Hello Driving Fore Autism Past Participants and Donors:
It is with a heavy heart we announce the cancelation of Driving For Autism Golf Outing scheduled for September 11th. 2020 has been a year that we could have never predicted. As with the rest of our state, ASRC has been closed since mid-March. This is a devastating loss to our members who rely on our programs that are made possible from the Driving Fore Autism Golf Outing. We have not been able to host our monthly socials, sports programs, life skills classes and our beloved POWER Camp summer program. To say that this current climate has been challenging for our members is an understatement and we grieve all that the ASD community has lost as a result of our temporary closure.
We remain dedicated to bringing back all of our programs in the near future to give our members programs they deserve. In the very near future and in light of the anticipated hybrid schooling, we have begun to develop programs that will support online learning for students at our center. Students will be able to attend in person sessions at our center that will help them get organized, complete their assignments and receive social skills and life skills lessons. Future plans we are considering include a tiny house community complete with a small business component where participants learn how to run a business as well as live independently.
We look forward to next year and welcoming you back to our fantastic golf outing. Please see below for fundraising opportunities for this year. As always we are so grateful for the support to keep our programs running.
