Iron-Leg Corp., a new Lancaster County non-profit dedicated to helping kids access the prosthetic limbs they need to live fuller happier lives, is launching its Inaugural Golf Outing on Sept. 11, 2021 to raise money for its latest recipient.
Iron-Leg Corp. President Matt Millhouse and Vice President Sean Laukhuff said they plan to hold this event every year in their ongoing effort to “give kids a helping hand and a leg to stand on.”
The first recipient will be a 9-year-old boy from York, PA named Shawn.
“Shawn was born without a right hand and currently has a bionic hand that has three buttons he uses to make his fingers work,” said Matt. “We are working with “Unlimited Tomorrow,” a prosthetic development company in upstate New York. They will scan his functioning hand, reverse it, and then 3D print his right hand to match with a desirable look and much more functionality.”
In addition to helping Shawn pay for the costs associated with a new prosthetic hand, the golf outing, which is billed as a four-person scramble, will also commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
“We are hoping to raise approximately $20,000 to $30,000 to cover the costs of this young boy’s hand,” Sean said. “We will have a 38-foot by 20-foot American flag suspended approximately 140 feet from the ground. It will be held by two cranes to commemorate 9/11. We’re also offering a car to win at a Par 3 hole, a silent auction, a 50/50 raffle, and a delicious dinner featuring an acoustic guitarist.”
Prizes will be available for the teams finishing in the top three, the team with the longest drive, and the team closest to the pin.
The event kicks off Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021, at the Highlands of Donegal, 650 Pinkerton Road, Mount Joy, PA 17552. Registration opens at 11:30 a.m. and will be followed by a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. The cost of the event is $90 per golfer, which includes a golf cart, greens fees, non-alcoholic drinks, and dinner with a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, and live music.
