Local Company Sponsors Tournament to Support Affordable Housing

Habitat for Humanity of Savannah’s 11th golf tournament will be held at the Savannah Quarters Country Club in Savannah on April 8, 2013. This much-anticipated event, sponsored by Gulfstream Aerospace, draws the titans of local industry and business to this annual fundraising event.

This year’s tournament is planned as an 18- hole scramble format with a number of contests and prizes. All proceeds from the Challenge Tournament benefit Habitat for Humanity of Savannah, which unlocks access to affordable housing to hardworking families.

“The tournament has raised more than $350,000 for affordable housing since its inception 10 years ago,” said Virginia Brown, Habitat Savannah’s Executive Director.

“A major factor in Habitat’s success is the support derived from this event as well as the corporate supporters like Gulfstream.”

“Gulfstream is honored to support the Habitat for Humanity Challenge Tournament, which addresses the need for adequate, affordable shelter for our community’s most vulnerable citizens,” said Mark Bennett, Community Relations Manager.
