NAAR's volunteers and supporters in Pittsburgh netted nearly $50,000 for autism research at the inaugural Shoot Par for NAAR Golf Classic, held May 5 at the St. Clair Country Club in Upper St. Clair, Pa.
All proceeds from the tournament benefit NAAR.
Event co-chairs, John Zotter and David Fitzsimmons, reported the event was a total sell out, attracting 128 golfers as well as an estimated 150 dinner guests.
Despite rainy weather, the day was a huge success. What is unique about the event was that organizers attracted support from a segment of the business community that was not supporting the Pittsburgh Walk F.A.R. for NAAR. The fourth annual Pittsburgh Walk is scheduled for Sunday, June 8 at Heinz Field.
Joining John and David on the Golf Committee are: Susan Fitzsimmons, Bruce Georgi, Richard Guttman, Mark Mazzei, Thomas McDonnell and Vicki McKenna.
