La Rabida recently held its 25th Annual Golf Classic at Harborside International Golf Course. The sunny summer day offered 18 holes of golf on two lush courses, live and silent auction, business card and 50/50 raffles, and lunch and dinner buffets. Board of Trustee members Cedric Shaw and John Q Smith gave remarks during the dinner portion of the evening, reminding attendees of the patients La Rabida serves and the importance of their continued support and participation.
Patient Eliakim, 8, and mother Jerusha also stopped by to share their story. Eliakim, who has cerebral palsy, scoliosis and left side muscle weakness, is a sports enthusiast and was excited to see a large golf course and meet new people. However, the crowded room made him nervous, and Jerusha spoke for him, resulting in a standing ovation.
