SPRINGVILLE—The 24th annual JP’s Green Jacket Open Golf for Autism held at the Springville Country Club June 2 brought out golfers of all ages and skill levels to help support a great cause.

Proceeds from this tournament will help benefit Autism Services Inc. and help support educational programs through SS Peter & Paul Parents Guild.

The tournament started with a noon shotgun start and included a four-man scramble style tournament while also holding other events like a putting competition. If golfers were feeling lucky, they also had the opportunity to win $25,000 if they achieved a hold-in-one on hole 12.

J.P.’s Foundation is a not-for-profit entity that helps promote charitable, educational, religious, scientific, literary and cultural organizations that enhance the lives of people in Western New York.

In collaboration with Autism Services Inc., their main goal was the help raise awareness for autism and help financially support autism service providers in the community.
