Clas­sic tee­ing off for autism group

Michael Healy-Rae set to em­cee Beau­fort’s clas­sic

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - NEWS - By EVE DOWL­ING

IT’S set to be a day of golf­ing fun on Fri­day April 27 as a char­ity golf clas­sic tees off at Beau­fort Golf Club in aid of St Fran­cis’ Autism Par­ent Sup­port Group.

The day is set to be filled with amaz­ing golf­ing fun as teams of three take to the fair­ways.

The day-trip will in­clude a fab­u­lous meal for each team at a cost of €150 per trio.

Mean­while, it’s been con­firmed that Michael Healy-Rae TD is ready to em­cee the live raf­fle. Com­ing along to give the politi­cian a help­ing hand will be Kerry Rose Breda O’Mahoney. The raf­fle costs just €5 to en­ter and in­cludes some amaz­ing prizes.

Over 26 prizes will be given away on the night as well as four week­end trips away. All funds will go to St Fran­cis’ Autism Par­ent Sup­port Group as they work tire­lessly to help fund-raise to em­ploy a vi­tally needed speech and lan­guage/mu­sic ther­a­pist for chil­dren. It’s a cam­paign that comes in the face of HSE cuts, re­sult­ing in no SLT ser­vice for the pupils. The group is grow­ing big­ger and big­ger ev­ery year mean­ing that the small group that started just four years ago is able to pro­vide for more chil­dren with Autism and pro­vide the nec­es­sary ser­vices that they vi­tally need.
