The Team Garrett "Driving Fore Autism" Golf Outing was established in 2015 by the family of Garrett Dennis, who own Rock Bottom Stone Supply and Ideal Transportation. His mother, Jennifer Belcher along with her very dear 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 six golf outings with proceeds of over $525,000 all of which all went toward construction costs for our Life Skills Center, "Garrett's Place", which was completed in May 2017 as well as all of our programming needs and scholarship funds. Our most recent initiative that started in early 2021 includes a partnership with a local manufacturing company that provides job preparation, training and job placement. Since the inception of this program, we have employed 12 young adults with autism!
Our 2022 6th Annual Driving Fore Autism Golf Outing raised $126,000 of income!!!! Thank you to our participants, donors, sponsors and volunteers for a record setting year!!!
