One of our favorite events of the year is our annual golf tournament fundraiser where we always have a good time supporting a worthy cause. Unfortunately, our 2020 golf tournament was impacted by COVID-19, leading to fewer players and sponsors than most years. Despite this challenge though, we had about 100 players at the event and were thankfully able to raise about $45,000 for the Haven House!
The event was organized by two Jerry L. Johnson team members, Austin May and Brittany Biles. “I think the tournament went really well. And I’m glad we were able to raise some money for a great cause,” Austin said about the event.
“It was a hole in one!” added Brittany.
