"The NABA annual golf tournament is a great way to show your support for a great mission while actually participating alongside some of the golfers being helped by the organization." Dr. Robert L. Schultze

Your support will benefit NABA’s Adaptive Living Program for Senior Citizens and the Dr. Harry Judge Vision Rehabilitation Center, providing services to seniors to help them make the most of their remaining vision and to continue to live full and independent lives with vision loss.

A shotgun start immediately follows registration and lunch. Online tickets for this event are available on our Donation page.

Sponsorships for this event range from $250 to $5,000. If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities and benefits for the tournament, please call Gail Hessney at (518) 463-1211, ext. 201 or email.
