“We know that the Taormina family’s long-time love of golf, as they have played at many of Long Island’s courses and country clubs, will translate into an outpouring of support for our event at The Creek Club (Locust Valley),” explained Life’s WORC/FCA Assistant Executive Director Matthew Zebatto.

Life’s WORC began 46 years ago by exposing the cruel, inhumane treatment the developmentally disabled population suffered, igniting a public policy movement to prioritize and improve their quality of life. Today, Life’s WORC and The Family Center For Autism operates a variety of treatment programs and a network of 42 group residences, providing for the needs of some 1,400 people through the efforts of some 600 employees.
