The Dawn of Hope Foundation hosted its 25th Annual Golf Classic at the Johnson City Country Club on Monday, August 27th.
There could not have been a more picturesque day to spend on the golf course at Johnson City Country Club! Both the 8:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. tournament tee-times were kicked off in style by ceremonial shots made by Bud & Ralph, two Dawn of Hope service recipients. Morning players enjoyed an energy-packed breakfast of chicken and sausage biscuits, fresh fruit, coffee and tea, compliments of Chic-fil-a of Elizabethton. Players were greeted in the afternoon with a hearty “fresh off the grill” lunch provided by Outback Steakhouse of Johnson City, which included burgers, chicken, pork chops and salad. Throughout the day, Honey Hot Dogs served up their signature dogs, which is a traditional all-time favorite for tournament participants. Players and volunteers were kept cool and hydrated by complimentary beverages provided by Cherokee Distributing Company and Pepsi.
Lastly and most importantly, a HUGE thank you goes out to the tournament Major Sponsor Blackburn, Childers & Steagall and BCS Wealth Management! Dawn of Hope is truly blessed and grateful that you chose to partner with us in this very special milestone event, which was held in memory of a revered Dawn of Hope and community supporter, advocate and friend, Tim Jones. We also sincerely thank our remaining 91 Tournament Sponsors, the 103 Players and the 35 Volunteers who helped to make this such a successful event. Strong partnerships with the business community and our many selfless volunteers are critical to achieving the Dawn of Hope’s mission, which is to provide the highest quality of individualized and caring services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout the Northeast Tennessee Region. Without your unsurpassed dedication and support, we could not have held such a class-act tournament, where more than $30,000 was raised to be used towards providing the many services Dawn of Hope offers to the Developmental, Residential, and Vocational programs.
