The tournament

“Every shot counts.  The three-foot putt is as important as the 300-yard drive.”Henry Cotton

The Autism Charity Classic was founded by Ron Canale, father of Lindsay, an 18 year old living with autism.  After hosting several small golf tournaments to raise money for local autism charities, Ron is now focused on the vision of supporting and maintaining the Tucson Alliance for Autism Center centrally located at 1002 S. Country Club Rd., Tucson,  AZ.  Ron’s ultimate goal is to build a new 13,000sqft facility to house the autism center.

where does the money go?

“To keep a lamp burning we have to keep putting oil in it.” Mother Theresa​

All proceeds from this year’s Autism Charity Classic will benefit the Tucson's autism community.  Our goal is to partner in a state-of-the-art autism center where Tucson children and families living with autism can receive interdisciplinary evaluations and diagnoses of autism, gain access to cutting edge therapies, respite care, informative seminars, a lending library, family support programs and much more.  Eleven years ago we helped jump start an autism center that has served hundreds of families and children!
