Despite the rainy weather, over 100 friends of Lifespire came to golf, eat, drink, celebrate and support Lifespire at the 17th Annual Lifespire Golf Classic. The efforts of those who were able to attend and those who championed us from afar resulted in over $200,000 raised to help the 5,000 adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities assisted by Lifespire reach their life goals of home, community and meaningful employment. We thank everyone for supporting our cause and we look forward to seeing old and new friends next summer at the 18th Annual Lifespire Golf Classic!
Another Successful Fundraiser!
