Anderson Center for Autism’s executive leadership team has announced details of its 2022 Golf Classic, which is expected to raise over $80,000 for the nonprofit organization. Sponsored by Oldies 98.9, the event will return to its traditional pre-pandemic format, and is scheduled for Thursday, June 9th, 2022 at The Links at Union Vale in Lagrangeville, New York. Proceeds will once again support Anderson’s delivery of award-winning, evidence-based educational, vocational, and residential programs to people with autism.

Said Patrick Paul, CEO/Executive Director of Anderson Center for Autism, “Our golf classic is a tradition that people really look forward to – and we are so thrilled to be planning for an outing that reflects a more typical pre-pandemic experience. We fully anticipate this event selling out quickly, given the excitement that has been communicated to us by returning golfers and sponsors. And that’s great news for Anderson of course, because the funds all help us carry out our mission of optimizing the quality of life for people with autism – so we love seeing the greens totally full!”

This year’s outing will represent a traditional event, with a shotgun start, scramble format, breakfast, lunch, cocktail hour, and awards dinner.  Unlimited beverage cart and stations are included. All golfers will receive a golfer gift and favor bag. Individual tickets are $250 per player, with foursomes and sponsorship packages also available.

Eliza Bozenski, Chief Development Officer of Anderson Foundation for Autism, shared: “Our golfers come from near and far for Anderson’s Golf Classic. It’s a really fun day, and also a very meaningful one for people. We want every golfer, sponsor, and volunteer to walk away with a deep sense that by participating, they help make a positive contribution to our Anderson community. And I think they really do feel that as we go about the day and cap it off with our dinner program, which always proves to be moving for guests. It really is such a special outing and we’re very grateful to all who make it possible.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in 44 are diagnosed with autism, a neurological disorder which can present with a wide range of communication, sensory processing, and socialization challenges.

Anderson Center for Autism, first founded in 1924, now serves nearly 300 individuals with autism and their families, who come from all over the United States. The organization’s message is “expand awareness, embrace acceptance.”
