Jim Ellis Automotive Set to Host 12th Annual Charity Golf Tournament Benefiting Children's Charities in the Atlanta Area

The Jim Ellis family of dealerships will be hosting their 12th annual golf charity tournament to support various children's charities

The Atlanta based family of automotive dealerships Jim Ellis Automotive will be sponsoring the 2012 Jim Ellis Charity Golf Tournament on August 26, 2012 at the Chateau Elan Golf Club in Braselton, GA. The event will benefit various children's charities in the Atlanta area.

The Jim Ellis annual charity golf tournament now enters its 12th year and helps a wide variety of charities who in the past have included Aflac Cancer Center, Boys and Girls Club of America, Children's Hospital of Atlanta, and Georgia's Center For Children's Advocacy among many others.

The 2011 tournament hosted over 250 golfers and raised over $50,000 in proceeds for the charities. This year is on par, no pun intended, to achieve similar results for the 12th annual golfing tournament that will include a full day of golf, raffles and awards during the closing of the ceremony.

Jim Ellis learned from an early age about earning rewards through hard work. This lesson still shapes his life, and the benefits spread far beyond his family. Charity support from this lifelong Georgia resident improves the lives of at-risk youths, homeless families and individuals, neighbors needing emergency assistance and adults with developmental disabilities.

Jimmy Ellis, COO of Jim Ellis Automotive states, "We are incredibly proud of the phenomenal support from around the community for our annual golfing tournament. The generosity of the vast array of vendors, manufacturers, business owners, employees, and individuals all contribute to make this event incredibly successful every year. We look forward to another great tournament that will allow us to give back to the community and truly help those in need."

Registration to participate or sponsor the 2012 Jim Ellis Charity Golf Tournament is open until August 13th, 2012. Sponsorships are available for a wide variety of levels including individual through platinum sponsors. The tournament is set to begin on August 26th at 7:30am at the beautiful Chateau Elan Golf Club located in Braselton, GA.
