Special Olympics to hold golf scramble fundraiser

The 2016 Special Olympics Illinois Foz Ryan Golf Classic will be held on Friday, May 27, 2016 at the Oak Brook Golf Course in rural Edwardsville. This four-person scramble will have a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. Cost for registration is $85 per player and includes an 18-hole round of golf, cart, lunch, dinner and prizes. A 50-50 drawing and silent auction will also be held. To register, sponsor or donate, contact Special Olympics Illinois at 654-6680 or email jdunning@soill.org.

There are more than 1,177 local Special Olympics athletes that are served in the Metro-East. Special Olympics is proud of the fact that they do not charge athletes to participate. This is made possible by donations from individuals, organizations, corporate sponsors, grants and special fundraising events. Golfers, donations and sponsorships are critical to the success of the 2016 Foz Ryan Golf Classic.
