PRESTONSBURG — Highlands Regional Medical Center is preparing for its 15th annual Golf Classic.
The tournament is the hospital’s premier golfing event, benefiting the Highlands Center for Autism Scholarship Fund. Participation in the Classic helps provide a positive change in the life of a child with autism, as there are over 100 students on the waiting list to get into the Center.
The Classic is a two-day event held on August 29 and 30 at Stonecrest Golf Course, in Prestonsburg. The tournament format is a four-man team scramble, with a limit of 40 teams per day. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. both days, and includes breakfast. Tee off is at 9:30 a.m. and lunch will be served during play. Finally, after play is over, dinner will be served and awards will be presented. All participants will receive a prize for their participation.
“This is a great event to support our Autism Center,” said Kathy Rubado, director of the Highlands Foundation. “Plus, it is an excellent opportunity to meet people from the community that care about such an important cause. We look forward to this event every year.”
