Hope you've been having a great summer, Team Autism! Here we are halfway through July and these beautiful sunny days are really flying by. Things are really starting to roll for us here at PAC and we are excited to tell you about all of the exciting updates.

PLAY FOR PAC golf outing a huge success!

The Winning Team!

Congratulations to our winning team!

Ron Pete, Willie Mayes,

Mia Adams & Maurice Adams 

On Friday, June 29th, we hosted our first PLAY FOR PAC golf outing at Sycamore Hills Golf Course in Macomb. The day was filled with beautiful weather, raffles, auctions, prizes and a good time had by all. Most importantly, this event helped raise money to help us further our goal of building a permanent Play-Place for Autistic Children. Thank you to all of the golfers who attended and we hope to see you all next year at our second annual PLAY FOR PAC golf outing, Saturday, June 22nd, 2013!
