Inspiring Possibilities

Thank You Golfers & Sponsors!
Our 25th annual golf tournament took place on September 17th at the Oaks of Cobden Golf Course. The event was well attended with more than 100 golfers enjoying the day. A big shout-out to our sponsors for helping make this day possible. Proceeds from the golf tournament support our Outcomes Fund which provides equipment and experiences to people we support that they might not otherwise be able to access. We truly appreciate the community support with this annual event.

The guide does have a focus on people with disabilities, but it is a good review for anyone when it comes to will and estate planning.
