ATLANTA- October 8, 2009- American Safety Insurance raised approximately $60,000 for Habitat for Humanity and the America Heart Association at its Sixth Annual Charity Golf Tournament, held October 1, 2009.
The funds, to be divided between the two organizations, were raised through player entry fees, sponsorships, mulligan and raffle ticket sales, as well as an ASI company match. Gold sponsors included Bunker Hill Insurance Agency, CRC of West Glendale, Fields Howell Athans + McLaughlin LLP, HCF Insurance and NIIT Technologies.
“Once again, the day was a huge success because of the generosity of our employees, vendors, customers and business partners, especially given the current economic conditions” said Stephen R. Crim, CEO of ASI and a participant in the tournament, “Our employees enjoy raising money for great causes, and I am pleased that we were able to meet our fundraising goals for the sixth straight year.”
This year’s event was held at BridgeMill Golf Club in Canton, Georgia and boasted more than 130 golfers from across the U.S. Players enjoyed multiple opportunities to win prizes, such as: hole-in-ones for a new car, golf clubs and golf vacations sponsored by Ed Voyles Kia; closest to the pin and longest drive competitions; and a raffle, which offered a grand prize of a weeks’ stay at a private villa and roundtrip airfare for two to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
