“Golf is a good walk spoiled.” – Mark Twain (and others)
“They call it golf because all the other four-letter words were taken.” – Raymond Floyd
As much as golfers love to complain about the game of golf, there is one time when no one complains: when you’re golfing in support of a good cause. And on May 11, there was no better cause than the Children’s Restoration Network’s Children’s Classic golf tournament in Suwanee, GA. Infosurv’s own Pete Booth, Kevin Wilensky, and Christian Wright participated in the tournament and, while they did not place, they did finish. And most importantly, they supported a great organization.
The Children’s Restoration Network supports thousands of homeless kids across Metro Atlanta. Founded in 1993, CRN’s efforts ensure that homeless children will have access to critical academic support, including getting new book bags filled with school supplies at the start of the year, having volunteers in their schools and shelters to tutor them, and receiving scholarships to help them attend college or technical school. Amazingly, this organization serves over 2,700 children each day.
“Any day you can go out of the golf course and support an organization like the Children’s Restoration Network, it’s a good day. They do so much to help homeless children and their focus is on making sure these kids can get an education,” said Pete Booth. “And you can trust them: according to Charity Navigator, 95% of contributions made to this organization go directly into programs for homeless kids.”
Infosurv Research has a long-standing tradition of community service through the Infosurv Foundation, annually giving a portion of our profits to deserving local nonprofit organizations nominated by Infosurv employees. As Christian Wright commented, “I’m proud and even more thankful to be a part of a company that is socially involved. The tournament was great – beautiful day, well-run, and allowed us to have a little fun in the name of a good cause.”
All of us at Infosurv Research hope you will consider joining us in support of Children’s Restoration Network. Your generous donation or your volunteer time will make a significant difference!
Before we end, one last golf quote from an Atlanta legend (in baseball, not golf!)
“It took me seventeen years to get 3,000 hits. I did it in one afternoon on the golf course.” – Hank Aaron
