ATLANTA, GA, Sept. 23, 2020 – While the circumstances were different amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Miller Zell Charities Annual Golf Classic was unquestionably a success last week at The Manor Golf and Country Club in Alpharetta, Georgia.
The tournament raised approximately $70,000 for “It’s the Journey” Atlanta 2-Day Walk and Susan G. Komen for the Cure 3-Day Walks in Boston, Dallas, Chicago and San Diego.
The money raised 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.
The GCI Installations team of Jon Stauber, Chris Heard, Sam Reid and Clay Dallas won first place. Jason Grubbs won the “Closest to the Pin” award, while Russ Kanner won “Longest Drive.”
“It was fun to be outside enjoying ourselves, being social but also being safe,” Miller Zell CEO Chip Miller said. “We’re really appreciative of our sponsors, who help make the tournament a great time every year so that we can support an important cause, Susan G. Komen for the Cure.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, tournament organizers and The Manor took special precautions to ensure the best possible health and safety for participants, emphasizing social distancing and hand sanitizing.
