Larry Miller, broker/owner of CENTURY 21 Larry Miller Realty, recently announced that his firm, with assistance from the CSRA Home Connections Program's Preferred Providers, co-sponsored the highly-successful inaugural "Golfing for Greatness" Charity Golf Tournament with Citizens of Georgia Power - Plant Vogtle Chapter, a 501-C(4) statewide service organization funded by Georgia Power and the Southern Company.

They raised a whopping $34,062 with all proceeds to be divided equally between United Way of the CSRA and Easter Seals East Georgia. The tournament was held Aug. 1 at the scenic Mount Vintage Plantation Golf Club, just a few minutes north of nearby North Augusta, South Carolina.

"In addition to 'in kind' door prizes (products and services), our Preferred Providers donated cash to buy golf-themed gift bags for all 144 players," explains CENTURY 21 Larry Miller Realty Director of Communications Dawn Human, who served as her company's event coordinator. "Some of our agents also volunteered their time and dollars to help Citizens for Georgia Power - Plant Vogtle Chapter and to make this worthwhile, fun-for-all event a huge success, right out of the gate."

"This event will provide critical resources that can be used to help individuals with disabilities to find the independence and satisfaction that can come from having a job," explains Lynn Smith, CEO/president of Easter Seals East Georgia. "Funds generated from this day of fun and fellowship will help our staff to advocate with employers to give disabled workers an opportunity to compete in the local job market and show how productive and dedicated they can be in any workforce."

The two co-sponsors and CSRA Home Connections volunteers sold 500 raffle tickets for $20 each, with all proceeds included in the 50/50 split between Easter Seals East Georgia and United Way of the CSRA.

"We have been privileged to serve and work with Easter Seals East Georgia in a major way for over two decades," reports Miller. "And now, working with them, United Way of the CSRA, Citizens of Georgia Power-Plant Vogtle Branch, and CSRA Home Connections in a collaborative effort to help our community is truly an honor."
