In 1993, Herb’s Paint & Body was looking for a way to connect with our customers on a deeper level. We decided to take a chance by inviting people to join us in a charity event. Thus was born the Herb’s Paint & Body/ Down Syndrome Guild Golf Classic, which benefits the Down Syndrome Guild of Dallas. Over the past 10 years, through our generous sponsors and the multitude of players in attendance, we have raised over $500,000 for the only local, non-profit organization solely dedicated to providing resources and support to individuals with Down syndrome and their families. The Down Syndrome Guild of Dallas offers parent-to-parent support to families with new babies and young children with Down syndrome through visits, information packets, and quarterly informative gatherings, and our support for them goes a long way. You can find more information about the Down Syndrome Guild at http://www.downsyndromedallas.org
Each year, we are thrilled to team up with the Down Syndrome Guild and continue this Herb’s tradition, and this year will be no exception. Thanks to all who participated in the past! The tournament this year will be at Dallas Athletic Club (DAC) on May 22, 2017. If you would like to become a sponsor, or you are interested in supporting or playing in the tournament please contact Alan Kirkpatrick at HerbsCares@herbspaintandbody.com. With your help we can make this year’s tournament the best one yet!
