Relatively new to Southwest Florida, Duffy's Sports Grill now has three area locations, including one in Cape Coral.

LARC, Inc., a nonprofit organization that has been serving developmentally disabled individuals in Southwest Florida since 1954, has teamed up with Duffy's Foundation for its first Charitable Golf Outing fundraiser.

"This is our first event with Duffy's which is a large supporter of those who serve people with disabilities," said LARC development director Angela Katz. "All of the money they raise in this community stays here in Southwest Florida. We are so excited to work with them, they have been an amazing supporter already."

Registration to play golf is $600 per four-person team. It includes lunch and a sponsors gift bag. Golfers can register at any Duffy's Sports Grill location in Cape Coral, Fort Myers or Estero, or at LARC, 2570 Hanson St., Fort Myers.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with such a worthwhile cause here in Southwest Florida," said Duffy's Foundation board member Mark Rouleau.

Tournament players answer a 9 a.m. shotgun start on Monday, April 24, at Stoneybrook Golf Club in Estero. First place teams in three different flights receive a new TV.

Customary sponsorship opportunities also are available. For more information call 239-334-6285, or visit larcleecounty.org .

"It will be a day of fun and learning more about what we do in the community," said Katz. "We serve over 300 individuals annually. We have two residential group homes, one in Cape Coral and one in North Fort Myers and each can house six people."

LARC provides adult day training and community support through its employment programs, vocational training and raising the independence of individuals with developmental disabilities.

"The money raised by this golf outing will help us bridge the gap between our clients' medicaid coverage and the actual cost," said Katz.

Duffy's founder Paul Emmett wanted Duffy's to be an integral part of each community it calls home. Duffy's Foundation, which is committed to helping organizations and individuals who positively impact their local communities, was created in Emmett's memory in February 2016.
