Let The Excitement Begin
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 2013 tournament proved to be one of our most successful events to date. We hosted 280 golf participants and raised close to $100,000 in proceeds. Last year's recipients included: Norcross Co-Op Ministries, (The Greg Ellis Center), Calvary Children’s Home, Our House, Babies Can’t Wait, Jesse’s House, Parkwood Farms, Kare for Kids, Boys and Girls Club of America, Georgia Center for Children’s Advocacy, the Aflac Cancer Center and Children's Hospital of Atlanta.
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
