The Lance and Aileen Porter Golf Outing

The Lance and Aileen Porter Foundation Memorial Golf Outing is an opportunity to celebrate and support the Foundation’s tradition of giving excellence.

Whether you are a scratch golfer, a weekend hacker, or you never picked up a club, your support of this event will make an immediate impact on the success of our programs.

Our goal is for our program to benefit residents statewide and for the low income and indigent population to have direct access to our services. The event is more than just an opportunity to get together. We want to connect.

Our tradition and pride are a direct result of the many present and past who have supported the mission and objectives of the Lance and Aileen Porter Foundation.
