ACDS held its largest golf outing ever on May 12. Due to overwhelming demand, golfers again played at two venues this year – Garden City Country Club and Rockville Links. More than 200 players enjoyed brunch and dinner at Garden City, where the day concluded with awards, raffles and silent auctions. Many of those in attendance have become fixtures at this annual day of fun and camaraderie. This year’s group also included dozens of newcomers who attended for the first time. We hope that next year’s event will continue to grow as our loyal supporters are joined by a new group of golf enthusiasts.
Executive Director Michael M. Smith told the crowd, “Your support at events like this is critical to ACDS fulfilling our mission…Especially in these trying times when ACDS is facing cuts in government funding and many of our supporters are faced with their own tough economic choices, we recognize that your decision to support ACDS can not be taken for granted."
