Paul Davis: 8th Annual Katelyn’s Ride for Autism

Each year, NE FL Advocates for Autism and Related Disabilities hosts a Golf cart Poker Run in beautiful Fernandina, Florida. The purpose is to promote Acceptance, Awareness, Safety, and Support for special needs families in NE Florida.

The event provides vehicle decals, weighted blankets (for sensory integration) and grants for families to assist with the cost of therapy for their children. During the event, more than 170 golf carts will travel to 5 destinations. Sensory stations, music, food, and a single poker card awaits each golf cart. The participant with the best hand gets a prize. There is also a silent auction and MANY opportunities to Volunteer. You can register for Half Day or Full Day as a Volunteer.

Paul Davis is proud to help sponsor this wonderful event for the second year! If you’d like to join in the fun, connect with Kali Freeland, event organizer.

Paul Davis: Supporting Autism Awareness is a Family Affair

For Kali Freeland, supporting Autism awareness is personal. Kali’s cousin, Mandy Conner, founded Northeast Florida Advocates for Autism and Related Disabilities. Mandy started her organization to raise awareness and funds for families in NE Florida with Autism and Related Disabilities. Mandy’s daughter Katelyn loves riding in golf carts, which inspired Mandy’s idea to organize a Golf Cart Poker Run for Autism. 

Saturday, September 26th was the 7th Annual Katelyn’s Golf Cart Poker Run for Autism.  Participating golf carts visit 5 stops around the Pirates Woods area of Fernandina. Police blocked the streets for 173 participating golf carts this year! At each stop, participants would draw one poker card and compete for the best hand. All cards / scoresheets were safely collected, and the winner was announced at the end of the day.

The event raised $35,000 this great cause! 

“I am always proud to volunteer at this event with my family,” said Kali. “This year, I was proud to include Paul Davis slap bracelets in the event bags and represent our brand at this wonderful event!”
