As May arrives, Chamber staff and Ambassadors are excited about our first fundraiser of the year, our 28th Annual Golf Benefit. Hosted by Athens Country Club on Friday, May 20th, we are ready to enjoy a tee-rific day of fun at the links thanks to our generous sponsors including Major Sponsors Holzer, Hickory Creek, and Wendy’s. Special thanks to The Laurels of Athens for the spectacular send-off and OUCU Financial for lunch! The course and clubhouse are in great shape and we are ready for our Team Sponsors and their guests to enjoy a day of fun and connection on the links.

The annual Golf Benefit always proves to be a par-fect day full of fun and networking as well as a competition for our Athens business community. Our Ambassador Club will be out and about ensuring our golfers stay hydrated and entertained, as well as making new connections and introductions to our members. Who will be fore-tunate enough to win the first-place trophy, provided by ZoneZ, or other skill prizes like the Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin? Check back next month for an announcement about our winners!

This event would not be possible without the generous support of our major sponsors, team sponsors, and supporting sponsors.
