Achievement House Hosts 2016 Charity Golf Tournament

SAN LUIS OBISPO – Achievement House is looking for golfers to join its 5th annual Charity Golf Tournament. The 10-hole tournament on Saturday, April 23 at Laguna Lake Golf Course is sponsored by local businesses. All proceeds from the golf scramble go toward a new forklift, which will be used to move items from locations, including the nursery, e-waste recycling and thrift stores.

For nearly 60 years, Achievement House has supported adults with physical and intellectual challenges through a variety of programs, ranging from vocational training, to job placement, to community living services. The nonprofit’s programs are all across San Luis Obispo County and northern Santa Barbara County. The nursery, e-waste recycling and thrift stores are open to the community. Achievement House also operates the 11th Hole Grill at Laguna Golf Course. You can learn more about the programs in a new video that features the people benefiting from and businesses behind Achievement House.

The tournament will feature prizes and a raffle. This year’s raffle prizes include resort stays, fine dining, event tickets, car care, gifts, athletic memberships and more. Prizes will be given to the teams with the best and worst scores, as well as closest to pin. There will also be a $10,000 hole-in-one cash prize.
