Dear Friend of AACORN,

You are cordially invited to become a sponsor for the 2022 first annual AACORN Golf Outing. Your partnership in this benefit will help continue to change the lives of very special adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, and the community.

How are lives transformed at AACORN? By finding a place where they fit in, where they can experience the thrill of a new skill mastered, pride in finishing a project or task, and self-confidence in knowing their contributions matter. Lives are transformed when people have a purpose, when they bond with animals who depend on them, and when they make positive social peer connections. Parents who despaired of finding a program that meets the needs of their adult children find hope for their future.

Our outing this year will be at the award-winning Gull Lake View Golf Resort. We will be playing the 18-hole East Course on Monday, July 25th. We are seeking sponsors for a variety of needs including title sponsorship, a food and a beverage sponsor, as well as 18-hole sponsors. Additionally, we are seeking donations for golf bag giveaways and raffle/auction items for the participants. Please visit the links for sponsorship levels.

Our sponsors will give the outing a great start, helping to ensure a successful fundraiser that goes directly to fund this unique skill-building program and the farm where it resides. You will receive recognition of your generosity and support during the fundraiser and posted on social media.

An additional way to support AACORN and the outing would be to join us on the day! Golf participation is $300 per foursome. At this time, we are not accepting single players. The event will include 18 holes with a cart and a delicious BBQ meal after play. Registration will begin at 8:00 am with a 9:00 shotgun start. Should you have any questions feel free to contact me directly at any time at (269) 348-0985 or via email to aacorn.ed@gmail.com. Thank you once again.
