Rockville, Maryland—On Monday, June 4, nearly 100 golfers, friends and supporters celebrated the 21st anniversary of golfing for TLC and raised over $63,000 at the 21st Annual TLC Golf Classic. The event benefits TLC—The Treatment and Learning Centers, a local, private non-profit organization that provides educational, therapeutic and vocational services to over 2,200 children and adults with special needs each year.
Since 1991, the Golf Classic has raised more than $1.6 million dollars for TLC. Funds raised provide vital scholarships for students to attend TLC’s Katherine Thomas School, subsidies for consumers with minimal or no health insurance who receive outpatient services, technology upgrades and other critical resources.
Golfers played in a 4-player step aside scramble format at Bretton Woods under gorgeous blue skies in Germantown. Bretton Woods also welcomed 30 students and 15 staff from KTS Middle School for a morning of complimentary miniature golf, lunch and an afternoon swim.
Following tournament play, golfers enjoyed cocktails and dinner as well as a live and silent auction. Event Planning Committee Member Jason Apolenis served as the evening’s emcee and states, “To be associated with TLC is a real privilege – the work that they perform in the community is truly a labor of love and makes a difference in so many people’s lives.” Other Volunteers include the rest of the event planning committee members including John Bogasky, James Feldman, Brian Frank, Jeff Richards, and Ed Harrington, as well as 15 event day volunteers.
