Marriott's Griffin Gate Golf Course in Lexington held a benefit for autistic students at Highlands Center For Autism in Eastern Kentucky Wednesday afternoon.
The tournament was called "Speak Out Fore Autism." It was hosted by the Stumbo Family Foundation. The foundation was founded by House Speaker Greg Stumbo. He and his wife said all of the proceeds from the event go to students who have trouble affording the school's $60,000 a year tuition.
The Stumbo Family Foundation has given more than $100,000 dollars to the Highlands Center For Autism over the past three years.
