Atlanta, Ga. (April 23, 2021) – Batson-Cook Construction’s 15th annual Clays for a Cause charity sporting clays tournament, held on Friday, April 16, raised $160,000 for two nonprofit organizations: Camp Twin Lakes of Atlanta and the Children’s Miracle Network at Columbus Regional. This year’s event was held at Big Red Oak Plantation in Gay, Ga.
“We appreciate the generosity of our donors, sponsors, and volunteers for this year’s successful event, and are grateful for their cooperation in making sure all parties were safe from the risk of the pandemic,” said Randy Hall, president and CEO of Batson-Cook. “We are committed to bringing people together to build a better community, and these two deserving organizations will use these funds to change the lives of our neighbors for years to come.”
Serving as Chair of this year’s event was Dela Rakestraw, human resources manager. Since 2006, Batson-Cook’s Clays for a Cause has raised over $1.9 million for eight different charities. To be successful each year, Clays for a Cause requires a small army of volunteers. Batchelor & Kimball, Inc. and Wayne J. Griffin Electric, Inc. were this year’s Legacy Sponsors. Approximately 80 employees from Batson-Cook’s Atlanta and West Point, Georgia Offices spent countless manhours planning and executing the event and ensuring everyone’s safety.
