The Arc Celebrates 50 Years, 1968 – 2018


In recognition of The Arc’s 50th Anniversary, here’s a little history of our annual golf tournament.

In 1977, we began with an annual Oyster Eating contest as a spring fundraiser. After 18 years of eating oysters, we decided to make a change. In 1995, we held the 1st golf tournament. In the early years, it was called “Fort Bend’s Finest”, as it honored those who had given so much to The Arc and community.

This year will mark the 24th year of the golf tournament, now called the “Golf Classic”. This annual event is a fun day filled with golfing, great BBQ, and a live auction.

Pictured are the first year’s “Finest”!
