Dear Friends & Fellow Golfers! 

We’re looking forward to having you join us for the 26th Annual Golf Scramble for Kids. Once again, proceeds from the day will benefit local children and their families when you “tee up to make a difference.” First Financial Bank is a proud supporter of TradeWinds and is excited to be the Signature Sponsor of this great event, along with our Presenting Sponsor, Strack & VanTil.

Thanks to your continued participation, TradeWinds is making a difference in the lives of more children. For example, our Summer Camp will be out and about in the community, providing daily fun and new experiences for more local school age children than ever before. Our daycare is doubling the size of its preschool program, enrolling 20 more participants.

The fact that these programs are inclusive for all children makes them unique. But what truly sets them apart is the fact that TradeWinds offers a wide range of services for children with special needs, giving their parents peace of mind while they work.

These include:
• Professional speech and occupational therapy services.
• Licensed teachers and professional nursing services.
• Specialized care for children requiring tube feeding, medications and behavior support plans.
• Individualized program goals with developmental screenings and follow up plan.

Your participation in the Golf Scramble for Kids is especially important this year as we continue to grow. Please help us do more by returning the enclosed registration form today and supporting our mission of serving people with special needs by empowering them to realize their full potential.

Thank you,
Mike Schneider
Golf Committee Chair
