Glenwood Autism and Behavioral Health Center will host the 23rd Annual Ireland Legacy Tournament on May 4. The long running fundraiser sponsored by King Acura raised more than $109,000 last year for Glenwood’s programs for adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
This year’s tournament will be held at Old Overton Club. It is named in honor of the Ireland family and in memory of Kitty, Kathy, Bill and Glenn Ireland. The Ireland family founded Glenwood 40 years ago to serve individuals with ASD and behavioral health needs in Alabama.
This year guest golfer Bobby Bowden, legendary Florida State and Samford University football coach, will join the tournament to show his support for Glenwood’s work with ASD and behavioral health and to bring attention to the growing need for services for adults with ASD.
Registration information for the Ireland Legacy Tournament can be found online at www.Glenwood.org or by calling Lillian Haines, Glenwood’s special event coordinator, at 795-3251.
Glenwood leads the state of Alabama in providing behavioral health care and educational services for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and severe emotional disturbances.
