-- Rainbow Village is a place that's intimately familiar with the concept of second chances. Families come to this community of transformation after facing challenges like homelessness, poverty, food insecurity and domestic violence in search of a second chance. Playing host to two major fundraisers each year – one a formal gala hosted in the fall and the other a charity golf tournament in the spring, it makes sense that the latter has become known as the Rainbow Village Second Chance Golf Classic. Touting the tagline "The course of life can be a challenge. Sometimes we need a mulligan," this year's Golf Classic will be hosted at TPC Sugarloaf on Monday, May 4. With its first major sponsor – Columbia Engineering – already lined up as Presenting Sponsor for the second year in a row, Rainbow Village is issuing a call for additional sponsors in hopes of making this year's event the most memorable and successful tournament to date.
"Let's equate this event to a big beautiful potluck dinner, where everyone is tasked with bringing something to the table," said Melanie Conner, CEO for Rainbow Village. "The more people involved, the greater the gathering. As our presenting sponsor, Columbia Engineering has effectively signed on to bring the proverbial 'steak.' There are plenty of spaces for companies, churches, families and individual donors to have an impact on not only this event, but also on the families who call Rainbow Village 'home.' The proceeds from events like our Golf Classic and Benefit Gala support programs carefully designed to transform lives and put our residents squarely on the path to self-sufficiency. Not to mention the fact that the Classic represents a really fun day on one of Atlanta's most beautiful and challenging courses. Many of our sponsorship levels come complete with a foursome, so it's an opportunity to do good works while having a blast!"
Lunch, beverages, snacks and dinner will be provided for each golfer. To view available sponsorship levels or purchase spots for individual golfers and foursomes. for the Rainbow Village Second Chance Golf Classic, interested parties can visit the Golf 2020 page at www.rainbowvillage.org
