The CDS Wolf Foundation hosted its 29th annual Teeing Off for Abilities Golf Tournament on July 18 at Monroe Golf Club. The event raised $162,000 for unfunded areas of need at CDS Life Transitions including new community living programs.
CDS Life Transitions provides services for over 3,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, chronic illnesses, seniors and veterans across 22 counties.
“We are very excited that, due to the generosity and hard work of our supporters, volunteers, board and team, we were able to raise so much money to help the people we assist,” said CDS Life Transitions president and CEO Sankar Sewnaut. “Whether they want to find jobs, an apartment or home, or whatever they want to do to be successful, we’ll be able to continue helping them down their path to success.”
The event began with registration and breakfast, followed by the opening ceremony where the Charlie Company 1st Battalion 25th Marines presented colors, and Laquan Hounshell sang the National Anthem. From there, 148 golfers began the tournament.
At the dinner ceremony, Triple M Packaging was announced as the winning team. Brandon H., a veteran in Warrior Salute Veteran Services, spoke about losing his wife, leaving the military and dealing with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and grief, and how Warrior Salute Veteran Services has helped him.
The CDS Wolf Foundation seeks donations to help support the growth and expansion of CDS Life Transitions’ community services and unfunded areas of need. For information: cdswolffoundation.org.
