Heatcraft Hits the Green to Support Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta

Stone Mountain, GA, May 4, 2015 - Inspired by the tireless work done every day by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta (BGCMA) to provide a safe haven for children in and around Atlanta, Heatcraft Worldwide Refrigeration joined in the effort by being one of several companies that donated to the annual BGCMA Putt for Promise golf tournament, May 4, 2015, at the Cherokee Town & Country Club in Sandy Springs, GA, as a gold level sponsor. Proceeds from the tournament will fuel programs aimed at helping kids live healthier lives.

“We are so thankful to Heatcraft and all of our top partners who are committed to helping our kids reach their full potential,” said Missy Dugan, president & CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta. “Whether it’s encouraging youth to join the basketball or soccer team, showing them how to garden or cook with fresh foods, or just helping them avoid behaviors that will put them at risk, we hope the healthy habits kids build now will stay will them for a lifetime.”

More than 200 attendees participated in this year’s event which raised $230,155 for key health programs at Boys & Girls Clubs across the city.

“Heatcraft is continually looking for ways to support our surrounding communities and what better way to give that support than to invest in our children and teens to provide a safe, positive and engaging environment to inspire them to achieve great futures,” stated Larry Golen, VP/GM Heatcraft Refrigeration Products.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta serves more than 3,500 children and teens each day and more than 12,000 youth each year.
