2010 Tournament Recap

July 24, 2010 by  

The 2010 Mayor’s Tournament proved to be another successful event as 36 hackers teed off on a beautiful Saturday morning to do their part in helping kids in need.

The weather was great, the sponsors were great and the players were…mediocre. But we’ve come to expect nothing less from this tournament.

Although the economy took a hit on the number of attendees, down twelve from last year, overall donations were only one hundred dollars less. The Mayor is happy to report that after adding up the receipts (yes, a calculator was used) the tournament netted $1,000 for our two charities: The Aflac Children’s Cancer Center and the Kennesaw Optimist Club.

This year we had a record setting six sets of father/son groups, and one set comprised of father/lazy son in law. What a great way to spend the day before Father’s Day!

Of course this tournament wouldn’t be possible without the help of so many people.

I want to thank Mike Glancy of The Glancy Allstate and Scott Smith of PestBan for sponsoring holes on the golf course. On a side note, if you know of a business or individual who wants to sponsor a hole, or a hole in one competition, let the Mayor know. It’s cheap and goes to the kids.

Donations, be it money, products or time, were made by the following folks: Scott Harper, Shon Rollins, Joe Massaro, John Losteau, Don White, Lynn Mertes, Robert Kenny, Scott Gasparini, Ryan Crass, Steve Matthews, Julie Doering, Jason Ellis, Kevin Dorman, Mark Dunn

Of course we can’t forget about our local restaurants and companies who’ve donated their products and services.

Chris Wright of Cobblestone Golf Course, Matt Floyd of Hooters in Kennesaw, Richard at Green Machine, Joanne Tubo of Waterstone Grill of Acworth, Henry of Henry’s Louisiana Grill, and of course our favorite place to hang out for beers, the folks at Olde Towne Tavern.

Thank you all so much!

I can’t wait to do it again next year.
