Pat Collins Golf Clas­sic fundraiser at new home in Lusby

Maryland Independent - - Business -

The Arc of South­ern Mary­land will hold its 14th an­nual Pat Collins Golf Clas­sic at Ch­e­sa­peake Hills Golf Course in Lusby on May 26. The fundraiser starts with reg­is­tra­tion and check-in at 7:30 a.m. with an 8:30 a.m. shot­gun start.

The tour­na­ment was held at the Twin Shields Golf Course in Dunkirk un­til it closed last year.

Along with the new venue, this year’s tour­na­ment re­flects another mile­stone for the or­ga­ni­za­tion — 40 years of ser­vice to in­di­vid­u­als with in­tel­lec­tual and de­vel­op­men­tal dis­abil­i­ties and their fam­i­lies. The goal is to raise $40,000 in com­mem­o­ra­tion of the agency’s years of ser­vice.

The an­nual tour­na­ment is held in honor of Pat Collins, a for­mer Arc board pres­i­dent. Collins worked tire­lessly for years to help in­di­vid­u­als with in­tel­lec­tual and de­vel­op­men­tal dis­abili- ties in South­ern Mary­land, ac­cord­ing to an Arc press re­lease. “The Arc of South­ern Mary­land spon­sors this tour­na­ment as a liv­ing me­mo­rial to my fa­ther,” John Collins, son of Pat Collins, said in the re­lease. “Those who serve as spon­sors, play­ers and sup­port­ers al­low The Arc to carry-on the mis­sion to which my fa­ther was com­mit­ted.”

The tour­na­ment in­cludes a con­ti­nen­tal break­fast, buf­fet lunch and var­i­ous putting con­tests with prizes. Golfers can pur­chase mul­li­gans and will re­ceive a gift bag for play­ing.

Tour­na­ment pro­ceeds will be used to sup­port The Arc’s res­i­den­tial, com­mu­nity sup­ported liv­ing, day sup­port, em­ploy­ment sup­port and respite care pro­grams.
