Oct. 31, 2008 - PRLog -- ULI Atlanta held their first annual golf tournament on Monday, Oct. 20, 2008 at the Atlanta Country Club. This year’s goal was to raise $30,000 to help support ULI Atlanta’s three focus areas of sustainability, work force housing and infrastructure. ULI Atlanta doubled their goal by raising $60,000. Twenty-six foursomes competed in the four person scramble and awards were given to the low gross and net winners.

“ULI Atlanta provides its members the opportunity to address community building and land use issues through our various education and outreach programs,” said Jeff DuFresne, Executive Director of ULI Atlanta. “The golf tournament is one way we support these programs, and it is through the generosity of our partners and members that we do so. We are extremely pleased with and grateful for the amazing turnout and support that we received with our inaugural tournament.”

Throughout the year ULI Atlanta offers several award-winning programs focusing on education outreach including UrbanPlan, Inner City Advisers, Smart Growth and Sustainability, Urban Marketplace and much more. Through these programs, ULI members can collaborate with other stakeholders to implement consensus-based solutions for more livable communities and strengthen their capacity to be leaders in the local land use arena. Events such as the golf tournament help raise the funds needed to continue and enhance these programs. To learn more about ULI Atlanta and their many programs, visit www.ULIAtlanta.org.
