The 3rd Annual Golf Charity Tournament will be held August 21st, 2014 at the Monarch Golf Course in Dana Point, CA. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Music Movement Foundation.
Music Movement is a nonprofit foundation, a 501(c)3 organization focused on providing resources & venues for music education, social integration & creative inspiration children & young adults with Autism and special needs. These children are often gifted musically & it is our mission to give them a voice & the means to develop & share their talents with the world.
Autism is one of the fastest growing developmental disabilities. It is estimated that 1 in 88 children in the United States lives with an Autism spectrum disorder. That number equates to 1.5 million children. This is a growth rate of 1,148% over the last 20 years. The cost of this disease is estimated to soon reach $200 – $400 billion per year. Only 56% of students with Autism finish high school and the unemployment rate for people with disabilities was 14% compared to 9% in the general population. This has dire economic consequences for the disabled individuals and their families.
Not only do they hope to enrich the lives of these children & young adults through exposure to music & stimulation of their musical talents, they are focused on helping them integrate into society by providing a channel for social integration with the mainstream community & other peers with special needs.
Music Movement is an all-volunteer organization.
