Knocking a little white ball around acres of grass can drive people crazy, or help raise money for special needs children and adults.
Wheeling’s “Third Alarm Bar” organizes and runs a golf scramble for charity.
Since 2012, the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center has received over 30-thousand dollars from the event.
That money goes a long way towards creating solutions that change the lives of families with special needs children or adults.
Tom Vapner, owner of the Third Arm Bar, said “The money that we donate is money above and beyond their yearly budget, so this pretty much goes to the staff’s wish list. As in any business, there are things that have to be eliminated, and usually it’s those little things that sometimes make the people that work their other jobs easier.”
This year’s contribution from the golf scramble will be used to purchase a universal exercise unit. Easter Seals physical therapists will use the system to help children having problems with gross motor movements.
