Calhoun, GA (September 26, 2023) – Yanmar America hosted its highly anticipated 2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament, an event dedicated to raising funds for the Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter located in Cartersville, GA. The tournament took place on September 21, 2023, at the Fields Ferry Golf Club in Calhoun, Georgia and brought together 20 teams of golfers for a day of friendly competition and community support.

Golfers gathered for a shotgun start at 1:00 PM, preceded by a boxed lunch served from 12:30 PM. The event was a great success, with participants competing for top honors on the scenic golf course.

One of the highlights of the tournament was the opportunity to win a Yanmar UTV as a hole-in-one prize. Although the UTV remained unclaimed, it added an element of excitement to the day. Awards were presented to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd placed teams, alongside contests for the longest drive and closest to the pin. Participants also had the chance to win raffle prizes, making this fantastic day of golf and charitable giving even more exciting.

All proceeds from the Charity Golf Tournament were directed toward the Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter, an organization that provides shelter, support, and guidance to individuals and families. During the awards ceremony following the tournament, Yanmar America welcomed Doug Belisle from Good Neighbor, and announced the total amount raised during the event. This generous contribution will play a significant role in supporting the shelter's mission to assist those in need.

The success of this event was made possible through the support of its sponsors: Wells Fargo as the Title Sponsor, Cardinal Logistics Management as the Awards Ceremony Sponsor, and Ad Victoriam Solutions and Taylor English Law Firm as Premium Sponsors.

"Yanmar America is immensely proud of the success of our 2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament,” said Yanmar America President, Jeff Albright. “Not only did it showcase the incredible camaraderie and spirit of our Yanmar community, but it also enabled us to contribute significantly to the essential work of the Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter. We're committed to making a positive impact in the communities where we operate, and this event exemplifies our dedication to giving back.”
