Open Arms Care Foundation will hold its 10th Annual Golf Tournament fundraising event on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, between 11:00am – 6:30pm, at the Forrest Crossing Golf Club in Franklin, Tennessee. The day’s events will include a silent auction, raffle, prizes, award ceremony and live entertainment. Lunch and dinner will be provided for all participants. Registration begins at $150 for single players and $600 for a foursome. Additional information regarding the cost for larger groups and for sponsorship opportunities are outlined on the organization’s website: All tournament fees and other contributions are tax deductible with 100% of the proceeds directly benefiting our clients.

This golf tournament is the largest annual fundraiser we hold in the Nashville area, so it is critical that we get the word out to all of those in our community,” said Sue Cook, Executive Director at the Nolensville Support Office. “As a non-profit organization, Open Arms Care relies on our sponsors and supporters for their participation and donations. It allows us to fund our special programs, which are extremely beneficial to our clients, as well as maintain our homes where they reside. Supporting our cause while enjoying a day of golf is a win-win for everyone.”

Open Arms Care was founded in 1989 to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to reach their maximum potential and lead dignified and meaningful lives. There are four support offices throughout the state (Nolensville, Memphis, Knoxville and Chattanooga); each has multiple residents that are home to the clients. Open Arms Care is very proud to be the first in Tennessee to bring a unique art program, A.R.T., Art Realization Technologies, to Tennessee. This ground breaking art program, called Flying Brushes, allows the clients to utilize special techniques and numerous other innovative options, to create artwork.
