ATLANTA, GA, Nov. 15, 2023 – The Miller Zell Charities Annual Golf Classic raised over $84,000 for breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease research 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 $854,300. 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.
“It was once again a great time for great causes,” Miller Zell CEO Chip Miller said. “It’s one of the highlights of the year for our associates and our business partners and friends, who share our belief that Alzheimer’s and breast cancer research are important initiatives to support.”
The event benefited Susan G. Komen for the Cure and “It’s the Journey” 2-Day Atlanta Walk, thereby helping to fund breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment programs, as well as the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund, which provides an endowment for breast cancer initiatives.
Further, all proceeds from the “Purple Skirt Hole” will benefit the “Battle of the Brain” and Alzheimer’s disease research. Miller Zell will have a team participating in the “Battle for the Brain” Lip Sync Contest in February of 2024.
Sharon Cooper, Miller Zell’s HR Manager, is a longtime leader and organizer for Miller Zell’s charitable efforts, particularly in the fight against breast cancer.
“I want to extend a big ‘thank you’ to the Horseshoe Bend Country Club and staff and our extremely generous sponsors, as well as our Miller Zell volunteers, particularly Nichole Silva and Carmen Arnold, who have helped organize and manage this great event through the years,” Cooper said. “These funds help so many charities in their pursuit for finding a cure for breast cancer and Alzheimer’s and provide resources to help those living in rural communities.”
