World Golf Hall of Famer Amy Alcott is in Israel this week for the first annual SHALVA Golf Tournament, which tees off today at Caesarea Golf Club. Alcott (picture above, right, with SHALVA’s Yossi Samuels, and inset), was a popular LPGA Tour player who won five major championships and 29 total tournaments. She is also part of the team designing the golf course for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. SHALVA, the Association for Mentally and Physically Challenged Children in Israel, is dedicated to providing quality care for individuals with disabilities, empowering their families, and promoting social tolerance.
Non-denominational and free of charge, SHALVA’s programs provide care from infancy to adulthood.
