Jim Ellis 17th Annual Charity Golf Tournament

 720 × 900

As members of the Jim Ellis Automotive Family, our Audi Atlanta Team is always on the lookout for different ways to give back and help others in our community. On September 17th, Audi Atlanta joined with almost 300 Jim Ellis employees, sponsors, and business partners to participate in the 17th annual Jim Ellis Charity Golf Tournament.

Each year, this event treats participants to a day of fun and relaxation, whiles also collecting valued donations for multiple charities throughout Atlanta. Beginning early Sunday morning, players from all over the Jim Ellis Community arrived at the beautiful Chateau Elan Golf Club, ready for the day’s exciting festivities to begin. Once everyone was placed into teams of four, a shotgun start at 9 am spread each group throughout the course and began the friendly competition. After a few hours of playing, a delicious lunch was provided thanks to a considerate donation by Bold American Catering. At the end of the event, every group’s score was tallied, and $1,000 Home Depot gift card grand prize was awarded to the top team.

 Along with the main group tournament, a series of smaller competitions were held to test the players’ individual golf skills. These contests, including the longest drive and furthest putt, presented winners with an assortment of unique and exciting prizes. As the day continued a silent auction and a raffle were also held for attendants to enjoy. All of the proceeds of the raffle and auction were collected and combined with every player’s entrance fee, and will be donated to numerous local women’s and children’s organizations during the coming holiday season. Thanks to the extremely generous contributions of everyone involved in this year’s charity tournament, nearly $150,000 was raised to provide aid for those in need in our community.

Thank you again to everyone who participated in this year’s Jim Ellis Charity Golf Tournament, and be on the lookout for Audi Atlanta’s next opportunity to get involved throughout the Atlanta area.
