DSI cancels 35th annual golf classic due to COVID-19

Developmental Services Inc.’s Golf Classic scheduled for Aug. 26 at Otter Creek Golf Course in Columbus has been canceled.

The event raises funds for DSI’s children’s services program.

“This is the best decision at this time," Chief Executive Officer Shane Burton said in a news release. 

DSI wants to ensure the safety of all of the volunteers, golfers and staff.

Last year, the event raised almost $10,000 for early intervention services for children with disabilities.

The nonprofit organization provides services for children and adults in more than 40 counties in central and southern Indiana, including Jackson County.

Its services include early intervention, job training and placement, residential living options, respite for families, education and enrichment, daily living skills training, advocacy and networking.
