Golfers take a few practice swings before the start of Swinging for Solutions in 2015.
Easter Seals of Birmingham brings to Greystone another opportunity to golf while giving back.
Easter Seals of the Birmingham area aims to improve the lifestyle of children and adults with special needs. It receives the majority of its funding from grants, United Way of Central Alabama, donations and fundraisers.
Services provided by Easter Seals include vocational training, job readiness training and computer skills training for adults, as well as physical therapy, speech-language therapy and occupational therapy for children. No one is turned away due to their financial situation, and thousands of dollars of care is provided each year at no cost.
Swinging for Solutions, Easter Seals’ annual golf tournament and fundraiser, is now in its 15th year. This year, the tournament is April 17 at Greystone Golf & Country Club’s Founders Course.
The tournament is a shotgun start and modified scramble with four-person teams. There are multiple sponsorship levels available, ranging from bronze level at $250 to “scoring party” at $3,500 or title sponsor at $10,000. Individuals or companies also are able to donate to Easter Seals of Birmingham if they can’t participate.
The tournament will start at 11 a.m., and a box lunch will be provided. The flight starts at noon, and heavy hors d’oeuvres will be provided at the end of the tournament in conjunction with an awards ceremony.
