RiteCare Center golf tournament raises $14,000 for Georgia Southern University center
Georgia Southern University’s RiteCare Center for Communication Disorders will receive more than a $14,000 donation after the Valley of Savannah Scottish Rite held its annual golf tournament that benefits the center.
Eleven teams teed up at Bacon Park Golf Course in Savannah, Georgia, in June to raise money for the RiteCare Center on the Armstrong Campus. It is one of approximately 180 centers throughout the U.S. that is supported by the Scottish Rite, and it is a functioning outpatient speech-language pathology clinic, serving individuals from Savannah and the surrounding areas. The clinic also serves as a training facility for graduate students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program.
RiteCare Centers were established in 1950 in Colorado as a philanthropic project of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of the Supreme Council Southern Jurisdiction to help children with speech and language disorders.
Profits from the tournament are added to a lump sum donation, which is given to the RiteCare Center each year in December.
