Autism Speaks Fall Classic

On Monday, September 20, 2010- which was arguably one of the best days of weather we have enjoyed this year- Autism Speaks proudly kicked off its Inaugural Autism Speaks Fall Classic.  Joining us was our title sponsor, Shop Rite, and together we hosted an exciting day of golf at the illustrious Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, NJ.  It was a wonderful day that included an afternoon shotgun start on Baltusrol’s famed Lower Course.  The tournament included several course contests and culminated with a Hole in One by Dr. Peter Kapsimalis who will take away a lease provided by Ray Catena Lexus of Freehold.  We are thrilled to announce that the Fall Classic raised over $200,000 for Autism Speaks!

Evening cocktails included a silent and a live auction that offered an opportunity to help fund family services initiatives for adults with autism.  Honorary Co-Chair and Autism Speaks Co-Founder Bob Wright rolled highlights from the first annual and highly successful “Light It Up Blue” initiative on World Autism Awareness Day, on April 2.  Event Co-Chair and President of The Bachman Company, Scott Carpenter hosted the evening program which included a “Thank You” video with a personal message from himself and fellow event Co-Chairs, Anne & Dave St.Clair.  The video was a touching piece that provided the Baltusrol audience with an overview of what autism is and why their support is so crucial to our cause.

    Those photos make me want to go out golfing. However, I don’t have the money to be able to become a member at a local golf course. Anyways my golf swing is pathethic. Either I need to have a local golf pro teach me the proper swing, or better yet try to emulate Johnny Carson’s famous golf swing on The Tonight Show.
