ASI Raises $86,000 for American Red Cross
ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--
American Safety Insurance raised over $86,000 for the American Red Cross
at its Ninth Annual Charity Golf Tournament, held October 4, 2012.
The funds were raised through player entry fees, sponsorships, mulligan
and raffle ticket sales, as well as an ASI company match. Gold sponsors
included Engle Martin & Associates Inc., Carlson Law Group Inc., AmWINS
Insurance Brokerage, Baxter Smith & Shapiro PC and Hamlin & Burton
Liability Management Inc.
"Once again, the day was a huge success because of the generosity of our
employees, vendors, customers and business partners, especially given
the current economic conditions," said Stephen R. Crim, CEO of ASI and a
participant in the tournament, "When we started this tournament nine
years ago, we raised less than $10,000. Each year we have exceeded the
prior year's goal and we are very proud to have reached another
milestone in 2012. We are grateful to all of our employees, sponsors and
participants and very happy to be supporting the charitable efforts of
the American Red Cross."
This year's event was held at BridgeMill Golf Club in Canton, Georgia
and boasted more than 120 golfers from across the U.S. Players enjoyed
multiple opportunities to win prizes, such as: closest to the pin and
longest drive competitions and a raffle, which offered a grand prize of
a weeks' stay at a private villa and roundtrip airfare for two to Cabo
San Lucas, Mexico.
Since its inception in 2004, ASI's annual tournament has raised more
than $400,000 for charitable organizations. In addition to the American
Red Cross, past recipients include American Heart Association, Habitat
for Humanity, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, ALS Association, Autism
