Competitive and fun, the Hankin Invitational at Whitford Country Club in Exton is coming Oct. 3; sponsorships are still available.

The 36th Annual Hankin Invitational Golf Tournament, supporting the mission of the Handi-Crafters Opportunity Center (HCOC), is scheduled for October 3rd. The outing on the links is at Whitford Country Club in Exton, while the outreach it assists is in Thorndale.

More than 200 golfers and 100 sponsors will participate in this outstanding event.

Play has been designed to be briskly competitive.

Two flights of golf are scheduled, one in the morning and one in the afternoon based on sponsorship level. The tournament has a shotgun start and four-person scramble play style.

More than just bragging rights are on the table. The event has several contest holes that will reward longest drive (men and women divisions) and closest to the pin. Atop that, a hole in one driven beautifully from the tee box will have its player driving off in a new car.

Best of all, the day is about helping HCOC in its uplifting mission. Each year, the Hankin Invitational improves the lives of the individuals and families who take part in its programs.

Proceeds from the Hankin Golf outing support the organization’s work to empower individuals with disabilities to lead more independent, productive, and fulfilling lives. These outreaches include:

  • Vocational Evaluation
  • Work Center Employment
  • 1:1 Case Management
  • Community Employment Services
  • Community Participation Programs
  • Adult Daily Living Center

HCOC works to increase each workers potential for successful competitive employment. Its commitment to the community continues the vision it started with 61 years ago as Handi-Crafters.

Jennifer Kriesel, Director of Development said, “Our vision for each worker is unwavering, and our commitment to them — and the community — is our top priority.”

Sponsor registration is now open, and spots are filling fast.

Joining the HCOC for this event maintains its ability to provide exceptional vocational training for workers.

From intensive handwork of electrical and medical parts to creating beverage and snack variety packs, HCOC-trained employees pack (or co-pack) for companies looking for socially responsible outsourced help.

In this tight employment market, HCOC trained workforce can help companies compete, meet delivery timelines, and exceed expectations. Each contract with HCOC is mutually beneficial, helping the workers and the firms that contract for them.

Hankin Invitational corporate sponsors receive logoed marketing exposure on printed event materials and social media.

But more than that, participating businesses help to drive home the HCOC push for employment for all levels of workers and individuals.

“Inclusivity, diversity, and equality are all seen and valued by our workers, and the community” said Joseph Tankle, HCOC Executive Director.
