Teed Up for Success

We’re thrilled to announce that Gabe, who is part of Samaritan’s Transition Program, has earned a slot in the Caddy Program at the Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach.  The Seminole is a prestigious club with a course that consistently ranks as one of the top 100 in the country. This is the first year for the program, which is run in association with the Western Golf Association, at Seminole Golf Club.  

Gabe was awarded this coveted slot following a comprehensive interview with the Seminole review committee.  Only six students are in the program each year, and competition for the slots is fierce. 

Gabe, who is 16, has Asperger’s Syndrome, a type of autism that affects one’s ability to socialize and communicate.  Gabe excelled in his interview, overcoming the social challenges that Asperger’s presents.  This is a true testament to his hard work and the incredible progress that he has made at Samaritan Center.

Gabe now has the opportunity to work and learn with some of the best, and to strive for a possible Chick Evans Scholarship (a full four-year scholarship to one of numerous colleges/unviersities throughout the country) through the Western Golf Association.  It's a true game-changer.  

The Seminole’s Caddy Program is an amazing opportunity for Gabe, who tells us that the program is fun and he’s already learning a lot.  He plans to continue next year.  

Spotlights

Carl's Cares

Samaritan Center was honored to be the first local non-profit to be featured in a new initiative launched by Carl’s Buick GMC:  Carl’s Cares.  As Carl’s spotlighted charity for July 2019, Samaritan Center received a donation for every car sold - a total of $2,200!  Carl’s also helped us educate the public about Samaritan Center by inviting us to share our story with their sales staff and displaying our brochures in their showroom. The generous people at Carl’s, have already been instrumental in helping Samaritan Center obtain a new van at a price we could afford.  They are truly a valued community partner.
