The 23rd CRIS Golf Classic was a huge success, raising money by gathering old friends and new for an afternoon of the ancient game. The money raised from the tournament allows CRIS to offer its service at no cost to people living in the community who are blind or unable to read due to learning, physical, intellectual, and emotional disabilities.
