to our golfers:

Your participation in this tournament supports the ongoing mission of Orange Grove to recognize, support, and celebrate the qualities of the individual. Orange Grove's history is rich in examples of entrepreneurial spirit, grit, collaboration, creativity, and innovation necessary to support children and adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD). Since Orange Grove's founding, we - that is, our entire community - have agreed that de-institutionalization isn't enough - that people with IDD are more like us than not, and that we should support programs and services that foster growth and individual achievement, and grow opportunities for success in our greater community. 

Growing opportunities looks like planning for longer and healthier life spans; developing skills necessary to work or volunteer; planning residential options; and working to improve accessibility to all the benefits this area has to offer. Programs like art, music, and therapeutic recreation recognize that each of us, regardless of IQ, has an innate desire to be creative. Health care and dental clinics assure families that the particular needs of their loved ones will be addressed in a holistic and respectful way.

Join me for an outing like no other - where high fives, hugs, and cheers are par for the course, and where the success of the day isn't measured by scores but by smiles.

Special Guest: Amy Bockerstette

Bockerstette is a collegiate golfer and disabilities advocate, and the first person with Down syndrome to receive an athletic scholarship to attend college. Bockerstette made national news when she was invited by the PGA Tour to play the 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale with professional golfers Gary Woodland and Matt Kuchar during a practice round at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The video of her parring the hole after hitting into a greenside bunker went viral, racking up 43 million views across various social media platforms.

Her energetic "I got this!" self-encouragement that day captured the imagination of fans and players the world over, and launched her I GOT THIS Foundation, whose mission is to promote golf instruction and playing opportunities for people with Down syndrome and other intellectual disabilities.
