2012 Junta42 Golf for Autism Doesn’t Disappoint

Every year, I’m amazed by the kindness of people.

This year, for our sixth annual Junta42 Golf for Autism, the kindness and generosity was out in full force.

This year’s charity golf event was held on August 13th at Acacia Country Club in Lyndhurst, Ohio (about 20 minutes east of Cleveland).  Here’s a quick recap of the festivities.

  • 128 golfers (a sell out)
  • Over 90 corporate and individual contributors
  • Over $16,000 in proceeds to Easter Seals, earmarked for speech therapy services for children with autism
  • Over $80,000 raised for Easter Seals since 2007

A very special thanks to our main corporate sponsors – Petco, GIE Media, Cleveland Steel Container and Zerys – as well as to the countless volunteers that help us pull off the greatest golf show on earth every year.

Thanks again to everyone who make this event what it is, year in and year out.  Here is the link to all the pictures from the day.
