We have just launched our annual Golf Classic fundraiser with some help from our friends who make it all possible. The Golf Classic, which is sponsored by O’Flynn Exhams Solicitors, raises much needed funds for our organisation and will see up to 60 teams of golfers joining us on 19th and 20th August at Monkstown Golf Club.
We have a wonderful experience planned for our golfers, including a Hole in One Competition, sponsored by Johnson & Perrott Motor Group who have put up a 100% Electric Opel Mokka as the prize. There will also be a Nearest The Pin Competition sponsored by Carbery Group, a Longest Drive Competition sponsored by First South Credit Union Ltd., and goodie bags sponsored by Lidl.
Our Golf Classic is a fantastic fundraising event, but it’s also an opportunity to open an important conversation around rights and equality for people with an intellectual disability and/or autism. Golf is an inclusive sport and there is no reason why it shouldn’t be enjoyed by all. Once again, we are proud to have people we support competing, and this year, we are also delighted to welcome the Northern Ireland Blind Golf Association to the event.
Our Physical Activities and Sports Department are working with some Cork golf clubs to promote inclusive golf and ways to make the sport more accessible. We have been working closely with Muskerry Golf Club on an inclusive golf initiative and participants and volunteers from that group will take part in the Golf Classic – they may inspire other golfers and Golf Clubs to consider what they can do to make the sport more inclusive.
Teams of four people are invited to book a place at the Cope Foundation Golf Classic online by clicking here or get in touch with Cope Foundation’s Communications and Fundraising Team on 086 7912540 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The registration cost for a team of four is €1,000 and includes green fees, refreshments, a three course meal, goodie bags and competition entry.
Huge thanks to all of our supporters, sponsors and corporate partners who make this event possible each year.
