Score a hole in one while making a difference in someone's life!

The Cope Foundation's annual O'Flynn Exhams Golf Classic will take place from 21-22 August at Cork Golf Club in Little Island. The event, which is being run for the 21st year this year, raises funds for short breaks for those with intellectual disabilities and/or autism and their families.
“It's always a fantastic day out and we would encourage the business community in Cork to get involved and support this worthy cause. 
“Cope Foundation provide a vital service to the people in Cork city and county and it is our hope that this year's event raises much-needed funds for the organisation,” said Micheál Ó Mulláin of O'Flynn Exhams.
The event consists of three tee-off times: 21 August at 2.30pm and 22 August at 9.30am and 2.30pm. Cost for a team of four is €1,000.
All funds raised go directly to Cope Foundation's short breaks (respite), which supports 2,350 children and adults with intellectual disabilities and/or autism in 65 different locations across Cork city and county.
“The short breaks service provides fantastic opportunities for a person supported to socialise with new people and engage in fun and new experiences, while also allowing caregivers much-needed time out from their care-giving role,” said Sean Abbott, Cope Foundation Chief Executive.
He said there are not enough services available to meet the ever-increasing demand.
“This is having a negative effect on families and their loved ones' wellbeing, with numerous families not receiving a service or receiving a very limited service,” Abbott said.
The golf classic has raised over €1.6 million since its inception, which has made a significant contribution towards the provision of essential services not covered by the State.
