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 $383,000 has been raised.  The 2019 goal: to surpass the $500,000.00 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 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!
