Golfers Raise $125,000 to Support Adults with Autism

On May 7, 2018, more than 100 golfers teed up for the 26th Annual Ireland Legacy Golf Tournament to support Glenwood. Old Overton Club in Vestavia Hills hosted the Texas Scramble event. It raised $125,000 to support adults with autism. Today, there are fewer services and less funding for adults with autism than for children. The Ireland Legacy Tournament is working to change that, raising more than $2.1 million over the past 26 years.

King Acura returned as the presenting sponsor of the tournament, marking their 12th year supporting the event. Their critical involvement, along with the “Birdie” level sponsors: Regions Bank, Vulcan Materials Company, Marathon Electrical Contractors and Southern Power, helped make this event successful for the adults served by Glenwood. The tournament was organized by a group of committed volunteers: Robin Savage, Philip Young, Mallie M. Ireland, Bill Ireland, Jr., Dowe Bynum, Christine Lewter, Ed Sledge, Glenn Drennen, David Courtenay, Cullom Walker and Marvin Thornton.
