This annual charity golf tournament and tradeshow is attended by over 350 golfers, sponsors, tradeshow hosts and volunteers.

All funds raised are for the Pacific Autism Family Network, a registered Canadian Charity.

This year, the 10th annual, the goal is to raise $100,000+. Funds raised will be earmarked to open a spoke PAFN office in the Fraser Valley.

2019 and all years going forward will raise funds to support the operations and services offered from the Fraser Valley office and all PAFN services.

The 25th annual, to be held in 2033, will have a goal of topping the half million mark, all funds raised over the 25 years supporting children and families, in British Columbia, living with autism spectrum disorder.

The golf tournament and tradeshow is a culinary event, showcasing the best of BC food and beverages. The tournament includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, on-course snacks, contests and prizes.

While the score of the golf tournament doesn’t really matter, the cause does – making a difference in the lives of children and families with autism. Sponsors enjoy the opportunity to network and use the time for business development, golfers enjoy the food and fun, on a beautiful golf course, high up the mountain at Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club, Coquitlam. This event is open to the public – everyone welcome.

Join us, support us, volunteer with us, donate. We invite you to get involved.

History of the Saccomaniacs Agriculture for Autism Tournament and Tradeshow 

Steve & Antoinette Saccomano of Chilliwack, started a golf tournament in 2009 to raise funds for autism support.

To date over $280,000 has been raised.

The 2018 goal: to surpass the $375,000.00 mark!

Steve and Antoinette know full well the struggles that individuals and families with autism experience in accessing services and support.

What started as a small family golf tournament is now a tradeshow and tournament and awards gala, hosted on two golf courses, with over 300 attendees, 50 sponsors, and 65 volunteers.

The day includes breakfast, lunch and dinner, featuring Fraser Valley products, food and beverages.

The tradeshow has 40 booths, hosted by local business people from the agriculture, real estate and banking industries.

Oh yes,,, the date also includes golf!

This culinary golf event has something for everyone:

  • The Plateau golf course for the golfer who plays often
  • The Academy course, a course that has 10 par 3’s and 8 par 4s, making it perfect for the golfer who doesn’t play a lot (although, seasoned golfers have found this course a great test for the irons!).
  • All funds raised are donated to the registered Canadian Charity, Pacific Autism Family Network (PAFN). PAFN opened in November of 2016, in Richmond BC, and serves families and children living with autism spectrum disorder across the province of British Columbia.
  • The Saccomano Lifeskills Learning Classroom is in place at their main Hub. Everyone is welcome to attend the Saccomano Agriculture for Autism Tournament & Tradeshow.
