2016 Annual Golf Classic
On Monday, September 12, 2016, Little Flower honored Tom Giarraputo of Executive Cleaning Services, at historic Engineers Country Club.
The event included gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner, stellar raffle prizes for golfers and non-golfers alike, and moving speeches from honoree Tom, and our Little Flower Youth speaker, who told the approximately 120 guests about the tremendous impact that the organization has had in her life:
“Little Flower came to me and completely changed my life. They brought me hope, helped me believe in myself, and willingly brought me a foster family I love…They helped me so much, and help me prepare for what my destiny puts forth for me.”
Thank you to all our sponsors, golfers, dinner attendees, those who donated raffle items, and our raffle ticket purchasers. Your support helped us beat our fundraising goal for the second year in a row!
Proceeds from Little Flower’s Annual Golf Classic support a wide variety of programs and services for those in our care. Programming efforts for our youth include vocational and independent-living skills, activities for children with special needs, art, music and horticultural therapy, healthy living enrichment and more. Services for adults with developmental disabilities range from day habilitation to therapeutic horseback riding to chaperoned day excursions. All of our offerings are provided by caring, licensed staff that devote themselves to enriching the lives of those we serve, every hour of every day.
