The Autism Resource Community Hub (ARCH) of Lehigh Valley will tee it up on Saturday, September 22, 2012 for the fourth annual Autumn Scramble for Autism and Pig Roast at the Berkleigh Golf Club in Kutztown, Pa.

Proceeds benefit ARCH of LV, the region’s breakthrough, first-of-its-kind resource facility that serves more than 200 children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and their families.

Four-person teams will play in a Scramble format, and the event includes prizes and a pig roast cookout. Registration is $100 per person ($400 per team) and includes green fees, cart and cookout.

Registration starts at 12:30 p.m. with a 1:30 p.m. shotgun start.

Golfers will enter to win a yearly single membership to Berkleigh Golf Club. A special dinner follows the round of golf starting at 6 p.m., and includes an old-fashioned pig roast, complete with BBQ chicken, homestyle baked beans, salad, assorted desserts, soda and beer. For the non-golfers, the dinner is $30 per person.
