Edward R. Matthews, CEO of ADAPT Community Network, announced today that the 18th Annual ADAPT Community Network Golf Tournament will be held at Brae Burn Country Club & the Golf Club of Purchase in Purchase, New York, on Monday, May 13th, 2019.

This annual tournament attracts over 250 golfers for a day of golf and entertainment in support of ADAPT Community Network. All proceeds from the event fund the delivery of life-affirming programs and services to children and adults with disabilities and their families.

I can think of no more deserving honoree than Alan.”
