Special Olympics Georgia will host more than 140 golfers at the 22nd Annual Marlow’s Tavern Golf Classic. On October 15th the fundraiser will feature a breakfast, lunch, full round of golf, and a reception with a silent auction to follow at the Country Club of Roswell. Since 1999, through the annual Marlow’s Tavern Golf Classic and restaurant openings, Marlow’s Tavern and Sterling Culinary Management have supported Special Olympics Georgia by raising over $1,400,000 for Special Olympics Georgia athletes. This alone has given approximately 12,963 athletes the opportunity to complete and train in various Olympic-style sporting events.
“Special Olympics Georgia is excited to celebrate on October 15th at the 22nd Annual Marlow’s Tavern Golf Classic at Country Club of Roswell,” said Special Olympics Georgia CEO Georgia Milton-Sheats. “This annual tournament has raised over $1,400,000 for the organization, and it continues to grow each and every year. We are so grateful that Marlow’s Tavern and all of the sponsors and golfers are believers and supporters of the 26,620 athletes in our state!” As Special Olympics Georgia continues to grow as an organization and continues to provide quality sports training and competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, we are thankful for a community who believes in our mission.
