Welcome House celebrated their 7th Annual Golf Outing by selling out to a crowd of 122 golfers and raising a record $40,000 at the Red Tail Golf Course. The proceeds will benefit the Welcome House clients and the Michael T. George Center for Community Living (a state-of-the-art facility for serving the needs of adults with intellectual and developmental disorders).

This year’s golf chairs were Jack Stanton and Frank Kosec and the sponsors were Yuengling ($7,500), Whitehouse Construction ($5,000) and Superior Beverage ($3,000).
“We are so grateful to the wonderful group of companies and individuals who helped us not only reach our goal, but surpass it,” said Tony Thomas, executive director of Welcome House. “We could not continue to be a leader in our field without the help of volunteers, staff, sponsors and golfers. Our sincere gratitude to all that continue to support our efforts.”

Welcome House has served individuals with developmental disabilities in Northeast Ohio for over 40 years. Every day our staff of over 300 dedicated caregivers helps 150 individuals with developmental disabilities live full and rewarding lives. Welcome House strives to create a supportive atmosphere in which residents develop independence and a sense of competence by experiencing success at home and in the community. The $40,000 we raised will enable us to continue providing the highest level of care to individuals with disabilities.
