Atlanta, Ga. (April 21, 2023) – Batson-Cook Construction’s 17th annual Clays for a Cause charity sporting clays tournament raised $210,000 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.
“What I really enjoy about this event is that it brings people together to have a fun time, network with each other, and do good for our community by supporting deserving organizations,” said Randy Hall, president and CEO of Batson-Cook. “This event wouldn’t be successful without the continued support of our donors, sponsors, and volunteers. We are able to enhance the lives of people in our community through their efforts.”
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 $2.3 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 and Titan Electric was the Expert-level Ammo Sponsor. 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.
