FULTON - Oswego Industries, a non-profit organization based in Fulton, that supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, held its 14th annual golf tournament fundraiser at Battle Island Golf Course in Fulton on Friday, June 14.
In addition to playing the tournament, golf teams had the opportunity to practice putting with a simulated visual impairment at the agency’s signature Disability Hole. “It’s really an exercise in empathy,” said Kate Pitsley, director of administration. Other on-course attractions included Gamble on the Green events at holes 9 and 17. A buffet-style dinner including barbecue chicken and salt potatoes, sponsored by The Bonadio Group, was served after the conclusion of the tournament.
“We want to thank all of our generous sponsors and the golfers who braved the gloomy weather to support us,” said Executive Director Laurie Davis. Corporate sponsors included presenting sponsor Cedar Bus Company and teams representing Brown & Brown and Ace Hardware, among others. Overall, the event raised over $7,100, which will help fund programming for the individuals the agency supports.
