For over two decades, Jim Ellis Automotive Group has hosted an annual golf tournament to give back to the community. This year’s Jim Ellis Charity Golf Tournament took place on August 28 at the Chateau Elan Golf Club. The day consisted of a golf tournament, delicious food, a silent auction, prizes and more, with about 300 golfers and 30 employee volunteers present to enjoy the activities.
The Jim Ellis Charity Golf Tournament started as a company family picnic and golf outing over 20 years ago and has turned into an opportunity that now raises over $100,000 annually to donate to local charities. After the tournament, Jim Ellis Automotive Group employees are given the opportunity to nominate local charities that they would like to see supported with the funds raised. The main focus for the funds raised is to support organizations that help women and children, but all employee nominations are given consideration regardless of focus to receive some level of funding.
We are pleased to announce that this year’s tournament raised more funds than ever before, with a total of $138,000 raised. After reviewing all nominations, the Golf Tournament Committee selected 28 deserving charities across the Atlanta area to award funds to. Donations are distributed around the holiday season and following organizations listed below are the ones selected to receive funds this year:
