Batson-Cook Construction’s 16th annual Clays for a Cause charity sporting clays tournament raised $200,000 for two nonprofit organizations: PTSD Foundation of America, Georgia Chapter and the Children’s Miracle Network at Columbus Regional. This year’s event was held at Big Red Oak Plantation in Gay, Ga. and the fifth time in that location. In total, the annual Clays for a Cause event has generated more than $2.1 million dollars for charitable organizations in our community.
“When we started the Clays for a Cause event, in 2006 we’d never imagine reaching this fundraising milestone,” said Randy Hall, president and CEO of Batson-Cook. “Generating more than $2 million dollars can only be attributed to the generosity of our sponsors, donors and volunteers. Their efforts and contributions are the real reason we’ve accomplished as much as we have, and we look forward to continuing this effort for many years to come.”
Clays for a Cause event is planned each year by a dedicated committee comprised of Batson-Cook employees. Batson-Cook’s Clays for a Cause has raised more than $2.1 million for nine 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.
