We’re proud to share that for the third year in a row, our CEO will be participating in the Jacob’s Touch Foundation’s Annual Golf Tournament to help support the charity’s fundraising efforts. The tournament will occur on Saturday, September 24, 2022, at the Westchase Golf Club.
Jacob’s Touch Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3), a community-based organization in the Tampa Bay area dedicated to providing financial care and assistance to families and organizations supporting children on the Autistic Spectrum. About 1% of the world population has autism, and 1 in 44 children are affected by Autism. Twenty years ago, this statistic was 1 in 150 children. Autism is considered the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S. today and is now more common than multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, and childhood cancer.
Jacob’s Touch Foundation is on a mission to drive autism awareness and raise money for assistance, therapy, medical, and educational needs. Jacob’s Touch Foundation has established itself as a resource for Tampa Bay families and organizations with a need for support. In 2021, Jacob’s Touch Foundation raise $50,000, which will assist with payment for therapies and educational and medical costs. This year, their goal is to increase the fundraising efforts to meet a $75,000 goal.
Digital Neighbor will be sponsoring the longest drive and closest to the pin competitions, in addition to sponsoring four players to participate in the tournament. For every post with our hashtag #ForeJacobsTouch, we will add another $10 to our donation to the foundation!
