“Tournament for Play is one of our most anticipated events every year,” said Jane Turner, executive director for Children’s Museum of Atlanta. “The support that the Museum receives from the Atlanta business community at this event helps us reach our goal to ensure that every child in metro Atlanta, regardless of socioeconomic, physical or mental barrier, is given the opportunity to experience education through the power of play.”
Donations from this event will help impact the lives of more than 200,000 children and caregivers that visit the Museum annually. Serving children, families and schools in Atlanta and throughout Georgia, the Museum has welcomed over 2.6 million visitors since opening in 2003. Since reopening in December 2015, following a massive renovation project, the Museum is further committed to serve the community as a world-class children’s museum and to continue to help ignite curiosity, imagination, problem-solving skills and a love of learning in the next generation of youth.
“This annual tournament provides a creative and engaging opportunity for Atlanta’s business leaders to invest in quality early learning outreach programs that positively impact thousands of Georgia’s children and their families every year,” said Eddie Meyers, PNC regional president, Greater Georgia. “The funds raised through this tournament will provide underserved children with access to exhibits and learning resources that will help prepare them for success in school and in life.”
In addition to a charitable round of golf, players were treated to a special breakfast presented by LexisNexis® to tee off the morning. The event concluded with a cocktail reception and awards ceremony to honor the winning teams, which included Saterbo Development Group, Novare Group and Stewart Title Guaranty Company. Other sponsors of the event included Mellow Mushroom, Arrow Exterminators, Lazlo, M South Equity Partners, Novare Group and Stewart Realty
