Teams will be matched with a professional, providing the opportunity to play with some of the best golfers in the country.

For companies and individuals that are interested in supporting this event, various sponsorship levels are available: flag sponsors, co-hole sponsors and golf cart sponsors are a few options. Specific info here.

Purchasing a sponsorship is a great way to support Autism Breakthrough and allows the organization to put forth the best possible services for adults with autism in the Knoxville community. Breakthrough recently relocated to 1700 Liberty Street which will house administrative offices and an Autism & Community Outreach Center which will be open to the public. There are various spaces designed for adults with autism including an enabling technology room, an occupational & physical therapy space, a sensory room and more.
