Events That Empower

The work of our community truly changes lives. Through Little Friends’ events, we can rally to support families & individuals living with autism.

Little Friends Golf Classic

Thank You!

Little Friends held their 15th Annual Golf Classic on Wednesday, October 4th, at Seven Bridges Golf Club with nearly 150 guests. The afternoon consisted of a nine-hole scramble, hospitality stations, contests, raffles and a live auction.

In total, over $77,000 was raised to empower children and adults with special challenges to live, learn, work and participate in their/our community.

“We are thrilled with the success of the golf outing,” said Mike Briggs, President & CEO. “We couldn’t be more appreciative of the support or happier with the funds raised to help our clients. Thank you to everyone who participated!”
