United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County’s 22nd Life Without Limits Autumn Golf Classic was just under way on Oct. 24 at Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Coast when thunder, rain and lightning intervened.

The tournament was rescheduled to Nov. 15 when 126 golfers and supporters helped raise proceeds of $140,000 to support the organization’s comprehensive services to more than 4,300 children and families with developmental disabilities including autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, developmental delay and children at risk for developing a developmental delay.

A tournament highlight was interaction with United Cerebral Palsy of OC

children and families who participated as ambassadors throughout the day and served as inspirational speakers during the post golf program.

There was a “family sink the putt,” hospitality holes and during the live auction, ambassador Johnny Spannagel helped the auctioneer talk about a special auction item, an Angel’s Dream Experience. Brad Barlow of FPH Capital Partners won the bid in order to give it to back to Johnny.

The winning foursome included Howard Lambert, Ben Arnold, Terry Kassien and Glenn Zet.

Key sponsors were DLD Insurance Brokers, loanDepot, Nationwide Insurance, California Bank of Commerce and 4Gen Digital.
