“We are so thankful to Cameron and her team for organizing this golf tournament,” said Ashley Garrison, Vice President at Montgomery Area Down Syndrome Outreach Group. “We appreciate that our children and adults with Down syndrome were the focus of the event. It was a great day for golf, music, food, and fun!”
The inaugural event consisted of 21 competing teams, with 84 participating golfers playing, 22 event sponsor organizations, and 17 community volunteers, led by Bob & Cameron DuBois, who organized and managed the event. In addition to the golf tournament, attendees enjoyed a silent auction, a shrimp boil dinner, and a concert featuring Cameron DuBois with Bama Sound.
The tournament also welcomed a special appearance by U.S. Special Olympic AthleteJane Cameron, a Montgomery native, who played in the tournament along with her coach, Eric Wiley.
The winning team was Charlie Betts, Brian Crowe, Jamison Helmer, and Britt Richardson. The longest drive was awarded to Wilson Adams, and the closest to the hole winner was Cole Turner.
“At M.A.D.S.O.G., we work to bring the down syndrome community together to support each other, while also reaching out to the local community to promote acceptance and inclusion,” Garrison continued. ”We want to thank Cameron, and all of the generous sponsors and donors who make it possible for us to continue our mission. We are already looking forward to the 2022 edition of Cameron DuBois’ Par-Tee Down Classic!”
