On September 9th, Skills Inc. held its 11th Annual Golf Tournament at Druids Glen. The event raised funds for our Aerospace Internship Program, which gives high school students with disabilities the opportunity to learn valuable life skills, receive one-on-one training, personalized instruction, and gain practical work experience in aerospace manufacturing and finish, all while earning credit toward their high school diplomas.
This year’s tournament was a big success! 146 golfers enjoyed a beautiful day on the links, another 50+ joined us for the awards banquet and a record amount of money was raised for our youth program. Thanks to everyone that participated and supported this event. We are extremely grateful for your generosity.
