Special Events

DEC hosts two main events each year:

The Phil Martelli Golf Class and the Martelli Games

These events give DEC the opportunity to connect with the larger community, educating people our mission and how we work to serve the needs of intellectually disabled adults. Every dollar raised helps DEC provide therapies and services that give hope, independence and self-esteem to developmentally disabled adults.

Both of these events are hosted by Coach Phil Martelli, who has been a champion for our mission for the last several years. Coach Martelli attends each event and helps DEC year-round as a community ambassador.
