On Monday, Nov 18, the Ninth Annual Topping Brothers Golf Tournament will be held at the Oaks Club Valencia. The Topping family will be hosting a round of golf, including breakfast, lunch, dinner and prizes. The tournament is an effort to bring awareness to autism, as well as raise funds for Autism Speaks. Finding a cure is imperative.
In 2010, Liam Topping, then 3, was diagnosed with autism. But it didn’t take long for the family to circle their wagons and get into action fighting this increasingly prevalent condition. The Topping Brothers (Liam, Miles, and Harry III aka Trey) with a little help from nana and their parents, Susan and Harry Topping, formed the annual tournament dubbed the Topping Brothers Invitational.
For more information, or to sign up to play for Liam and others with autism, visit https://autismspeaksscv.com/. There you can set up a foursome to play, become a sponsor, or donate to those who do not play golf but would like to participate.

Autism is the fastest growing developmental disorder, affecting 1 in 88 children born today. It occurs in all racial, ethnic, and social groups and is four times more likely to strike boys than girls. Despite the high prevalence and growing health care costs associated with caring for a child with autism, autism research receives less than 5% of the research funding of many other, less prevalent, childhood diseases. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined. There is no cure so its important to fund research into the causes of autism, how it can be diagnosed and treated early.
