ELIZABETH – By hook or by slice – and occasional straight drive – friends and supporters of Community Access Unlimited (CAU) recently took to the golf links to help raise funds for the agency at CAU’s 16th Annual Golf Outing, held May 13 at Suburban Golf Club in Union.
The event raised more than $24,000 for CAU programs, which help support more than 3,500 special needs youth and adults through a variety of services geared toward helping members improve their lives through greater community access.
Sovereign Bank served as the event sponsor and Sopher Financial Group hosted the event’s cocktail reception.
“The support that the business community and our other friends and patrons provide to Community Access Unlimited is immeasurable in its impact on our members and their lives,” said Sidney Blanchard, CAU executive director. “Our annual golf outing is just one of the many ways our partners enable us to fulfill our mission of providing programs and services to those with special needs, and it provides us with an opportunity to say thank you to them, as well.”
Community Access Unlimited supports people with special needs in achieving real lives in the community. CAU provides support and gives a voice to adults and youth who traditionally have had little support and no voice in society. CAU helps people with housing, life skills, employment, money management, socialization and civic activities. CAU also supports opportunities for advocacy through training in assertiveness, decision-making and civil rights. CAU serves more than 3,000 individuals each year.
