Handicapped Children's Association held its 12th annual golf tournament at Vestal Hills Country Club on Thursday.

72 golfers participated in a Captain and Crew format.

Each year, the tournament raises between $10,000 to $12,000 to support the HCA's services, including a residential program providing housing for the disabled with 24/7 assistance.

Executive Director Steve Sano said the work the agency does changes lives.

"When you see a kid with a disability especially a kid who is only maybe 3 or 4 years old, and he comes to us and he is not able to walk and you see him take his first steps. Those are the kinds of things that really impact me," he said.

The entry fee for the tournament included a lunch, dinner, and special prize giveaways for the golfers.

The tournament was supported by Peoples Security and many other sponsors.
