21st annual RiteCare Classic a Great Day for Golf for a Great Cause

Twenty years ago, the Scottish Rite golf outing began as a fun event for members, with extra money going to RiteCare. Over the years, the annual golf benefit became one of the Scottish Rite signature events supporting the RiteCare Speech and Language Clinic.
