Let's Tee-Off for Cope Foundation

Friday 25 May 2018

We have just launched our annual Golf Classic fundraiser, sponsored by O’Flynn Exhams Solicitors. This year is the 22nd year of the Golf Classic. The event raises much needed funds for Cope Foundation.

This year's tournament, which will feature 60 teams, will take place at Monkstown Golf Club on the 28th and 29th of June.

To register for the event, visit www.cope-foundation.ie/GolfRegistration.

Cope Foundation Chief Executive, Sean Abbott commented: "The annual Golf Classic continues to be one of the highlights of our fundraising year, and couldn’t be accomplished without our firm friends, donors and fundraisers. The funds raised last year by our Golf Classic allowed us to finish works and furnish our new short break/respite house in Skibbereen. This beautiful house will be opened shortly and will be a fantastic resource used by so many people. Over 40% of the people we support are aged 40 years and over. For people with intellectual disabilities, the aging process tends to happen earlier, progress much faster than usual, and can bring about complex needs which we need to be able to meet. The funds raised from this year’s Golf Classic will enable us to develop and augment services and supports for the older people we support.”

Micheál Ó Mulláin, Partner at O'Flynn Exhams said: “At O'Flynn Exhams, we are very proud to continue to support Cope Foundation’s annual Golf Classic.We hope that this year’s event will enable the organisation to further develop these vital services. The Golf Classic is always a great day out and we would encourage the business community in Cork to register teams and support this very worthy cause.”

Munster Rugby player, Stephen Archer, joined us for the launch of the Golf Classic. Stephen is a great supporter of Cope Foundation
