Garrettsville – More than 220 golfers showed their support for Hattie Larlham and children with developmental disabilities at the 27th annual Sugar Bush Golf Classic. The event was held on Wednesday, May 22, at Sugar Bush Golf Club in Garrettsville. Featured celebrity golfers included co-host of WTAM 1100’s Wills & Snyder in the Morning Bill Wills and Vice President of Public Relations for the Cleveland Indians Bob DiBiasio. Cleveland Indians Hall of Famer and Special Advisor Mike Hargrove also lent his support as a special guest at the event.
During the past 26 years, the golf classic has raised more than $640,000 for the nonprofit organization Hattie Larlham. The proceeds have funded a wheel chair accessible playground, therapy equipment, an adaptive toys program and education center for children with developmental disabilities.
This year’s event supports the Hattie Larlham Creative Arts and ventilator programs. Creative Arts enables people with developmental disabilities to create artwork of their own with the assistance of a professional studio artist. The ventilator program helps children and young adults with chronic respiratory conditions to breathe easier.
Hattie Larlham extends a sincere thank you to the Sugar Bush Golf Club, event committee, employees and volunteers. Many hours of hard work and planning went into making this event truly enjoyable for everyone who attended. For the past 27 years, Sugar Bush Golf Club has donated the golf course to Hattie Larlham, and many golfers have made this an annual tradition.
Hattie Larlham greatly appreciates the support of Sugar Bush Golf Classic sponsors Middlefield Banking Company, Cleveland Indians Charities, Printing Concepts, the Fraternal Order of Eagles #2436, Medical Mutual, PNC Bank and the many other sponsors and guests who supported children with developmental disabilities at Hattie Larlham.
