We would like to thank everyone who participated in Brasfield & Gorrie's annual golf tournament, Putts for Paws, held on May 09, 2006 at Woodmont Golf Club. With your help, over $62,000.00 was raised to support GCI's animal therapy and service dog programs!

We would like to especially thank Brasfield & Gorrie, the presenting sponsor of Putts for Paws 2006. Brasfield & Gorrie planned for this event for many months, did all the promoting, provided golf gloves for all players, prizes for the top teams, golf shirts for all volunteers, and donated $9500.00 in hole sponsorships. Once again, Brasfield & Gorrie went way above and beyond for the children and adults in our therapy and service dog programs, and we truly cannot thank them enough for their dedication and hard work. We are so blessed to have the incredibly dedicated and caring people of Brasfield & Gorrie in our GCI family!

We would like to send a special thank you to Eric Young, Julie Wilson, and Elizabeth Welden for their extraordinary efforts in making this event such a huge success!
