Meet Joey - Just for Joey
The Just for Joey Golf Outing started in 2004 to benefit Eden Autism. Joey is a 27 year old with autism and the nephew Tom Bohen, the host of the event. Joey attended The Eden School from age 3 to 21, and now attends the Midland Adult Services in Branchburg, NJ, which receives all the proceeds of the Just for Joey Golf Outing!
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that severely affects social behavior, communication and learning. The result of a neurological disorder that interferes with the functioning of the brain, autism typically appears during the child's first three years. According to the CDC, the most recent estimate is 1 in 59 (16.8 per 1,000) school-aged children have been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and in New Jersey, 1 in 39 births. Autism is 3.7 times more common in boys than girls.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you at the 16th annual Just For Joey Golf Outing which will be held on Friday, June 21, 2019 at Heron Glen Golf Course in Ringoes, NJ.
We hope this letter finds you all well. It is time to start preparing for the 16th annual Just for Joey golf outing! We cannot thank you enough for your faithful support for all these years.
The proceeds for Just for Joey will again go to The Midland Foundation. Last July, Joey began attending Midland Explores Day Habilitation Program. Midland Explores is an activity-based program that provides community integration, personal development, social and leisure outings to adults with a range of intellectual and developmental disabilities. This comprehensive program centers on meaningful choice for adults who are better served by courses and experiences to further develop skills to help them live successfully. Joey continues to participate in his beloved Meals on Wheels and also has the opportunity to engage in other activities including music, art and yoga, as well as instruction in daily living. On a personal note, this September, Joey will be the best man at his brother Danny's wedding to Carlee Pett! We are all looking forward to a beautiful day with family!! The foundation of Midland's success continues to be attributed to community support from people like you.

If you would like to attend, we are requesting a $110 deposit toward the greens fee and BBQ in advance and a minimum donation of $50 to The Midland Foundation upon arrival the day of the outing.
