Approximately 120 golfers came out to enjoy the day, including Green Bay Packers William Henderson and Bill Schroeder. Green Bay Packer Marco Rivera helped watch the hole-in-one contest. The day also included a ball toss, led by David, a JCM participant. Before dinner, David also thanked everyone for coming and supporting JCM.

The evening included an interactive panel with the three players, who answered questions about their time playing professional football. When asked what they do in retirement, Bill Schroeder stated, he believes in “always [giving] back to the community.”

Serving a good cause

This is William Henderson’s third year at the tournament. He said, “Interacting with the people who are involved with JCM, to see in the enjoyment in their Jesus Cares Ministries Golf Tournament 2011faces, [you know] JCM is doing a good service. … It’s been three years of wonderful times.”

Rivera shared that he “believes in what [JCM] is doing—it’s just tremendous to hear about, but when you meet the people behind it—God-caring people—it’s great.” For him, this organization’s purpose is close to him, as his brother has a disability as well.

Bill Schroeder found that the tournament was a good way to get involved, “It was great we had the support of the golfers and raised money for a great organization.”

Michael Klatt, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our society often excludes people who have developmental disabilities. With your support, we are able to reach out to a ‘hidden society.’”

We thank all who came to help support this ministry! To learn more, contact our National Ministry Offices at 1-888-600-TLHA (8542) or e-mail info@tlha.org.
