We would like to extend great thanks to our many sponsors this year. We appreciate your participation in making 2017 the very best tournament ever!
Thank you for everyone who attended our 16th annual Jim Ellis Charity Golf Tournament. Save the date for the 17th annual Jim Ellis Golf Tournament to be held September 17, 2017.
Since 2001, we have hosted a charity golf tournament to raise funds for various charities that our employees nominate and select. The proceeds raised by this event are awarded to the selected charities during the holiday season. Many employees from the Jim Ellis automotive family assist in the tournament and many more participate as players.
Our 2017 tournament proved to be one of our most successful events to date. We hosted 270 golf participants and raised over $125,000 in proceeds. Last year's recipients included:
|Most of the sponsorships come from generous business vendors, associates and vehicle manufacturers. It is gratifying to see so many of our partners participate in this charity event that brings us together for food, fun and golf. More importantly, together we raise funds that enable us to support our community at a special time of the year.
Jim Ellis learned from an early age about earning rewards through hard work. This lesson still shapes his life, and the benefits spread far beyond his family. Charity support from this lifelong Georgia resident improves the lives of at-risk youths, homeless families and individuals, neighbors needing emergency assistance and adults with developmental disabilities.
"Nothing was ever given to me. Success came by working for it. Now my wife Billie and I want to share our blessings and opportunities. It's time to give back." -Jim Ellis
