EDMOND — The Infant Parent Intervention Center recently announced the fourth annual Birdies for Babies Golf Tournament, at River Oaks Golf Club in Edmond.

Registration, driving range access and lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. June 3 and the shotgun start begins at 1 p.m. This is a four-person scramble tournament with lots of prizes for the top three teams. There also will be special competitions with prizes for the winners of the longest drive, straightest drive and closest to the pin. IPIC has also arranged for a hole in one competition where golfers have the opportunity to win a new car.

The cost to play is $130 per person or $520 per team. Hole sponsorships also are available starting at $100. Please see the organization’s website for more details.

Since 2007, the Infant Parent Intervention Center has been working in the Oklahoma City metro area with infants/young children and their parents in order to strengthen bonds and attachment. Specifically, IPIC works with children who have been removed from their parents’ custody due to abuse or neglect.

The group’s goal is to help the parents learn the necessary skills to regain custody and parent the children in a safe and nurturing way. IPIC also works with children who have behavioral issues or attachment disorders in order to help them function better at home and at school. IPIC has an Oklahoma City office at 39th and Penn and a Canadian County office in El Reno.
