Making a Difference on the Golf Course

ATLANTA GA – Bear’s Best Golf Course in Suwanee, Ga. was the site of Assistance League of Atlanta’s sixth annual charity golf tournament on October 2, 2023. Of the 140 golfers who participated, 60 were sponsored first responders and essential workers in acknowledgment of the service they provide to our communities. A major fundraiser for Assistance League of Atlanta, donors and supporters had the option of playing a round of golf and/or sponsoring an individual or foursome of first responders and essential workers as a thank-you for their service especially through the challenges of the past year. Representatives from the following organizations enjoyed a free day of golf with meals and prizes: Atlanta Fire Department, Dekalb County Fire Department, Dunwoody Police Department, Gwinnett County Fire Department, Johns Creek Police Department, Kaiser Permanente and Norcross Police Department.
