Annual Golf Tournament

Thank you to everyone who participated in Brasfield & Gorrie's annual golf tournament, Putts for Paws, held on May 08, 2007 at Eagle Watch Golf Club in Woodstock, Ga. With your help, $83,762.75 was contributed to support our therapy and service dog programs!

A very special thanks to Brasfield & Gorrie for sponsoring Putts for Paws for the third year! Since 2004, Brasfield & Gorrie has raised a total of $200,000 to make the lives of people with disabilities more fulfilling and independent!

In 2007, Brasfield & Gorrie went way above and beyond (again!) and contributed volunteer golf shirts, breakfast and snack items, signage, golf balls for all participants, and prizes for the winners. In addition, they donated a John Deere "Gator" for the live auction and contributed $7500 in sponsorships to make the day a HUGE success! The employees of Brasfield & Gorrie also gave of themselves; spending countless hours not only planning the tournament but also volunteering their time the day of for registration, raffle contests, and hole contests. Thank you to Brasfield & Gorrie staff and family; D'Anne Hamilton, Jeff Jarrett, John Mitchell, Marcia Peters, Lauren Thompson, Natalie Springfield and Darcy Young; for your commitment to our cause!

Special thanks to Eric Young and Julie Wilson, who worked many long hours to plan, promote, and coordinate Putts for Paws. We cannot thank Eric & Julie enough for their dedication to GCI and for making our programs possible!
