Atlanta building industry nonprofit’s annual fundraiser to combat homelessness
HomeAid Atlanta, a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity dedicated to building new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach, is proud to announce the 17th Annual Housing the Homeless Golf Tournament will be held on Tuesday, October 29 at Capital City Club Crabapple in Milton.
“Our Housing the Homeless tournament is a great opportunity for folks to get together at an amazing, exclusive, private golf course and have some fun while supporting our mission,” said Mandy Crater, HomeAid Atlanta Executive Director. She added, “Thanks in part to support from last year’s tournament, in 2019 we have already completed seven HomeAid Care Days to provide a savings of approximately $70,000 in construction costs for Atlanta organizations that provide housing and services for the homeless population. Additionally this year, through four major construction projects, we have added 98 beds and saved a little over $400,000, our biggest year yet!”
“We have room for about 112 golfers this year,” said Cecily Stevens, HomeAid Atlanta Marketing Coordinator. She continued, “We’re looking forward to another great tournament to raise funds for our mission. Last year’s event was a lot of fun and we got great feedback about the venue from our golfers. We’re so grateful to everyone who plays or sponsors this event because we rely on these funds to build and renovate homeless shelters and related facilities. We welcome any and all businesses and organizations to participate and sponsor the tournament.”
Housing the Homeless is a shamble-style golf tournament, with players teeing off at 11 a.m. Registration begins at 9 .m.
