SAVANNAH, GA – August 4, 2021 – Dozens of teams will tee off early Wednesday, Sept. 8 for the Two Hundred Club of the Coastal Empire’s annual Community Heroes Golf Tournament at The Club at Savannah Harbor, 2 Resort Dr. As in previous years, countless community volunteers have committed to help ensure the success of the event, which serves as a fundraiser for the nonprofit club and a means for honoring the memories of heroes lost in the regional community as well as the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
The opening ceremony will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will include visits from area first responders who will showcase their life-saving equipment. Two Hundred Club President Mark Dana and other supporters will speak before golfers are dismissed to their carts and sent out on the green with a traditional shotgun starts at 9 a.m. Food and beverages will be provided on the course.
Various golf tournament sponsorship opportunities are available, including a $300 GPS Hole Sponsorship, $150 Standard Hole Sponsorship, $700 Big Ticket Team, $1,200 Legacy Sponsorship, $2,000 Hero Sponsorship, and $5,000 Valor Sponsorship. There will be additional support opportunities include the putting contest, where each participant pays $5 for two putts and raffle prizes.
“We are so thankful we are able to safely host our annual golf tournament this year so we can still interact with our community, get them involved in the 200 Club’s mission, and pay tribute to the fallen heroes here in our region who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice,” Dana said. “Our organization has lost significant funds due to the COVID-19 pandemic that are needed to continue our mission, so we are beyond grateful to our sponsors and donors for their dedication to our cause, and to the volunteers who invest countless hours of their own time to put these events together in honor of our first responders.”
The Two Hundred Club is a 501(c) (3) organization who “cares for those who care for us” by providing spouses of their late first responders who have lost their lives or sustain critical injuries in the line of duty. The organization serves a 20-county area within Georgia and South Carolina. All proceeds from this event will go directly to supporting the families of fallen heroes.
