Hilton Head Macula & Retina Sponsors Camp Leo Golf Tournament

Dr. Peter Liggett and Hilton Head Macula & Retina is proud to support Camp Leo Golf Tournament this summer. Camp Leo is a summer camp for legally blind children.  All campers are legally blind and, thanks to Camp Leo, participate in activities that all kids love: swimming, games, kayaking, sports, movies and more.  Camp Leo provides blind children an opportunity to socialize and explore independence. For one week, kids get to have a sleep-away camp experience just like their peers.  From bunk beds to songs, Camp Leo offers the classic camp experience we all know and love.

The 2018 Cam Leo Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, August 18th at Eagles Pointe Golf Club with a 10 a.m. shotgun start. The entrance fee is $90 per person or $360 for the team. There will be prizes and mementos for every person, as well as tournament 1st, 2nd, 11th, 20th and 28th. The entry fee includes golf, cart, range balls, on course “grill out” lunch and beverages.

To sign up your team, contact Alan Arseneau at campleogolf@gmail.com or vikecub@gmail.com or call 843-836-2266.

Since 1975, Camp Leo has been offering this amazing experience to local blind children thanks to the partnership of The Lions Club of Hilton Head and the South Carolina Commission for the Blind.  Campers enjoy the care of full time staff and volunteers during the time at camp. Continued success is thanks to generous sponsors. Hilton Head Macula & Retina is thrilled to support this amazing program for the 2018 season.

This summer, camp dates run from July 15 to 21.  Kids from the area are packing sleeping bags and sneakers preparing for a week of fun and friendship at Camp Leo.  If you have a child that would enjoy Camp Leo, you can apply here.  To learn more about Camp Leo and see how you can help, visit their website.
