Special Events

DEC hosts two main events each year:

The Phil Martelli Golf Classic 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.

The Phil Martelli Golf Classic for DEC on Friday, May 18, 2018

This is so much more than “just” the chance to play a round at Philmont County Club. The Phil Martelli Golf Classic is also a terrific opportunity to expand your personal and professional networking circles, while you support hundreds of intellectually disabled men and women from our community, and have a great time! Save the date now and plan to play on May 18, 2018.

We offer a variety of ways to get involved with this event, from sponsoring golf holes, to donating auction items, to playing golf and enjoying the days’ festivities.

Please contact Sally Mandes, Resources Manager, at 610-277-3122 or for additional information.
