25th Annual Northwest Georgia Bank Foundation Golf Benefit Raises $95,000 For Local Charities

Thursday, September 05, 2013

The 25th annual Northwest Georgia Bank Foundation Golf Benefit raised almost $95,000 to help fund north Georgia and Chattanooga area charities.

More than half of the community bank’s employees played a role supporting the fundraiser at the Champions Club at Hampton Creek, including serving on planning committees, raising money, covering for co-workers who volunteered and spending the day on the course serving players.

Ringgold Telephone Company served as top sponsor again this year, followed by more than 200 additional sponsors at various funding levels.

Golf Benefit proceeds now surpass $1 million for a long list of beneficiaries. Most recent recipients include the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Chattanooga, Inc, Prison Prevention Ministries, Primary Healthcare Centers, Friends of Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park, the Better Business Bureau, Score International, and the Catoosa Citizens for Literacy.  In fact, funding to build the Northwest Georgia Bank Amphitheatre came entirely from golf benefit proceeds.

Since 2012, Northwest Georgia Bank contributed over $145,000 in community gifts apart from the 
Northwest Georgia Bank Foundation, while employees donate hundreds of hours of hands-on volunteer 
service annually to local charities.

Donations to the Northwest Georgia Bank Foundation are tax-deductible and always welcome. Make checks payable to: Northwest Georgia Bank Foundation, Attn: Kevin Taylor, Treasurer, PO Box 789, Ringgold, GA 30736.
