SPRINGDALE, AR., – Kendall Riggins of Crye-Leike, REALTORS is joining forces with Bank of the Ozarks in a Golf Tournament to benefit United Cerebral Palsy’s (UCP) children’s program.  Riggins is the Managing Broker of the company’s Springdale Arkansas branch office located at 1112 S. 48th Avenue, Suite B in Springdale.

This is the 7th annual UCP challenge to benefit the agency’s Conductive Education of Northwest Arkansas (CENA).  It’s a program for preschool and school age children with motor disabilities such as cerebral palsy.  Conductive Education combines education with physical, occupational and speech disciplines to provide a total comprehensive program allowing children to reach their highest potential of independence.

“As a team, playing a game we enjoy, we can provide some much needed dollars to help children and families impacted by this condition right here in our community,” said Riggins.  “I’m thrilled to be teaming up with my friends at Bank of the Ozarks to help out the real winners in all this? the children.”

The UCP Challenge is Friday, April 18, 2008 at the Lost Springs Golf Course.  Players will enjoy lunch at 11:30am before the start of the tournament.  Awards will be presented to the winners of a hole in one, closest to the pin, longest drive and a putting contest.  For more information email jennifer@ucpcark.org or phone 479-957-2022.
