Golfers raise $10,000 to aid disabled kids


Follow The Republic:


More than 200 golfers participated in the DSI Golf Classic on June 4 at Otter Creek Golf Course and helped raise about $10,000 for children with disabilities.

Golfers had to wait out a short delay because of thunderstorms before hitting the course for the 29th annual scramble.

“The Golf Classic and all the golfers and sponsors who support the event really make a positive impact in the lives of the children we serve and their families,” Kim Fledderman, DSI’s manager of children’s services, said in a news release. “For example, the Golf Classic helps pay trainers to come and educate our providers twice a year here at DSI.”

 

DSI is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides occupational, physical, speech and developmental therapies to more than 300 children up to age 3 in the First Steps Program in 14 counties throughout southern Indiana.

Other DSI services include residential living options, work training, job placement, respite care, family support, education, music and behavior therapy, after-hours programs and networking opportunities. DSI’s total service area includes 40 counties in Indiana.

Players from Ohio, Illinois and Michigan joined Hoosiers for the fundraiser.

“The community support was truly heartwarming,” Tom Harpring, DSI communications representative, said in the release. “Our sponsors, players and volunteers really stepped up for a good cause.”
