ATLANTA, GA --- August
30, 2006 --- The Georgia Chapter
of Safari Club International (GASCI) will hold its 3rd
annual Safari Wish Golf Tournament on Tuesday, September
12th at the Trophy Club of Atlanta in Alpharetta. Former
Atlanta Braves closer John Rocker will participate. Corporate
sponsorships and golf openings are available. For more
information call Patti at 770-569-1100.
The Safari Wish program raises funds to take children with
disabilities and life-threatening illnesses on outdoor adventures.
SCI Members and Chapters through the Safari Wish program
try to grant as many lifelong wishes to these children as
“Seeing these children enjoy themselves motivates
all of us to contribute and keep this program going. Unfortunately,
we are limited to the number of wishes we can grant each
year. When you watch a child who is ill having fun and being
able to forget about doctors and treatments for a while,
it warms your heart. Thanks to people like John Rocker, who
has made contributions to the organization, we are able to
accommodate even more children,” said James Lakeman,
president of the Georgia Chapter of SCI.
The event will include golf, dinner, a silent auction and
fun for everyone. Auction items include such items as: celebrity
autographed memorabilia, guns, crossbows, hunting and golfing
gear and hunting trips. A GMC truck will be awarded to two
hole-in-one winners, courtesy of Carl Black GMC.
