An organization dedicated to directly meeting the varied needs of individuals affected by autism spectrum disorders and to raising funds for family support, research, education, and autism awareness.
Tee Time for Autism began in 2010 in order to raise funds in support of education and scientific research for those with Autism and to directly meet the needs of individuals with autism. After much searching, two organizations were chosen to benefit from the tournament. Two tournaments later, several thousand dollars had been raised in support of both ACT Today and Autism Speaks. We continue to support Autism Speaks through advocacy and participation in the annual Houston Walk. In 2011, we invited a speaker to share her personal experience with autism, expanding our effort to raise awareness of autism. In 2012, we began efforts to form an individual non-profit organization in order to focus financial support locally in addition to continuing support of established charities that share in our mission of meeting the needs of those with autism. In 2014, we completed the process of becoming a non-profit organization of our own, committed to providing for those with autism spectrum disorders in the greater Houston area. Over the past two summers, we gave away the proceeds of the golf tournaments which raised over $20,000. We were able to fund grants for 33 children. Please help us and those with autism by spreading the word about Tee Time for Autism.
