The Arc Gloucester hosted their annual golf tournament On September 15th, 2022, at RiverWinds Golf and Tennis Club in West Deptford, New Jersey. This year, The Arc Gloucester honored Bob Shryock by creating the Bob Shryock Memorial Award in which Michael Evans was the first recipient. This event was made possible by the multiple sponsors including the three bronze sponsors, Gallagher Insurance, Heritage’s, and The Dalton Family.
The Arc Gloucester’s golf tournament is one of the longest running golf tournaments in Gloucester County. Bob Shryock was the 2022 honoree acknowledging the time he spent advocating for disability rights, spreading awareness, and supporting The Arc Gloucester.
Bob was the honorary chairperson of The Arc Gloucester’s Golf Committee for many years and made a huge impact on all the individuals The Arc Gloucester serves. To commemorate his memory, The Arc Gloucester created the Bob Shryock Memorial Award which allows one of their served individuals to participate in the golf tournament free of cost.
Michael Evans was the first Bob Shryock Memorial Award recipient. Mike loves the golf tournament and has participated in it for many years, he was proud to be the first recipient and is looking forward to golfing in the tournament again next year. “I like it better than Christmas,” Mike said when asked about the golf tournament.
On behalf of everyone here at The Arc Gloucester, we would like to give a huge thank you to all our sponsors, volunteers, and participants. We would not have been able to do this amazing event without each of you and we look forward to another wonderful event in 2023.
