The fundraiser will include an 18-hole shotgun start tournament; driving, putting and chipping skills competitions with prizes; a buffet lunch and on course refreshments; as well as gifts for participants. A dinner event will conclude the day.
Dempster will participate on behalf of The Dempster Family Foundation, an organization started by Dempster and his family to raise awareness of a rare chromosome disorder called 22q Deletion Syndrome which affects his daughter.

“Dragonfly Forest gives children with autism and other medical needs from all across the country the opportunity to have a fun, exciting and memorable camp experience,” said Dr. Werner Hopf, CEO, Dolphin. “Dolphin has been a ‘Friend of the Forest’ since 2006, and in that time we’ve been fortunate to meet so many wonderful children and families through Dragonfly Forest’s summer camp and afterschool programs.”
Through the Dragonfly Forest programs, children develop valuable social skills that help them make new friends and maintain relationships so they become more confident and increase their self-esteem. The program allows the children to become more adventurous and encourages them to try new things in a supportive environment. A limited number of foursomes are still available.

About Dragonfly Forest
Dragonfly Forest is a year-round camp program for children with Autism and Medical Needs. The children who attend Dragonfly Forest have their lives disrupted by one of the aforementioned illnesses or disorders and Dragonfly Forest allows them to do things they never dreamed they could do, in an environment that allows them to enjoy the activities of a traditional camp. From early morning swims and zip lining in the afternoon, to evening campfires and talent show contests, Dragonfly Forest encourages these children to be ‘just kids’.
Founded in 2002, and having served over 3,000 campers to date, the camp’s primary goal is to help each child feel like a regular kid. At camp each child forms strong bonds with other kids, and when they leave their week in paradise, they leave with a unique network of friends. As a result of the summer camp, Dragonfly Forest has found that, even months after leaving, children have an increased independence and confidence, better relationships with peers, teamwork capabilities, better dealing with challenging situations, developed leadership skills, better attention to activities or tasks and their completion, and the ability to better communicate feelings and thoughts.
