ATLANTA, GA, Oct. 15, 2022 – The Miller Zell Charities Annual Golf Classic raised over $100,000 for breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease research last month at Horseshoe Bend Country Club in Roswell, Georgia.
Miller Zell Charities has hosted its Annual Charity Golf Classic since 2009 and since then has raised approximately $770,000. The sponsorship donations will help fund breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment programs, as well as support the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund, which provides an endowment for breast cancer initiatives.
This year, the tournament added Daughters Against Alzheimer’s as a beneficiary. In February, Miller Zell will have a team in the Battle for the Brain lip sync contest to raise money for research related to Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
“Another great tournament for great causes,” Miller Zell CEO Chip Miller said. “It was fun catching up with and having fun with friends, old and new. Alzheimer’s and breast cancer research are causes that deeply matter to Miller Zell and our associates. We also are truly appreciative of our sponsors, who help make the tournament a great time every year so we can support important charities.”
Sharon Cooper, Miller Zell’s HR Manager, has been one of the leaders of Miller Zell’s charitable efforts for more than a decade, particularly in the fight against breast cancer.
“The Miller Zell Soles Annual Charity Golf Classic would not be possible without the support of Miller Zell, Horseshoe Bend Country Club and staff and our extremely generous sponsors,” Cooper said. “Thank you to Miller Zell employees in the office and graphics center who helped with signage and printing. Thank you to our Miller Zell volunteers for sharing your time and talents to make a difference in the community. These funds help so many charities in their pursuit for finding a cure for breast cancer and provide resources to help those living in rural communities.
“A very special thank you to Miller Zell’s Nichole Silva and Carmen Arnold for their tireless energy, organizational skills and support.”
