Raleigh,With local non-profits continuing to seek needed funds, a golf tournament and a Halloween party proved successful for The Tammy Lynn Center for Developmental Disabilities this year. The two days of events which consisted of a Masquerade party October 30, followed by a sold-out golf tournament on October 31 raised $30,000 for local, non-profit, Tammy Lynn Memorial Foundation, Inc.

“With the Center’s revenue seriously impacted by stagnant system rates and changes in State reimbursements, our Board has focused on further developing our fundraising efforts,” said Dana Dorroh, board chair and local businesswoman. “It was the hard work and persistence of the leadership team for these events in conjunction with our caring community that produced bottom-line results this year of five times what was generated by the tournament last year. I am so grateful for this level of support for the people with developmental disabilities, a segment of our population that is often ignored.”

“Bringing together friends, family and business associates for a great time that gave back to our community was a tremendous endeavor,” said Douglas Baker, president of HumanCentric, and co-Chair, with Ellen Jane Baker, president of Culture2Culture, of Masquerade Madness.

Sam DiFranco, CEO, Triangle Commercial and Karel DiFranco, author and speaker, Teach for Success were co-chairs of the golf event. Both oif the events took place at Brier Creek Country Club and Golf Course.
