Payscape recently presented a check for $19,200 to the non-profit organization, Junior Achievement (JA) of Georgia, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Downtown Atlanta. The donation is the result of the Glow on the Green charity golf tournament, hosted by Payscape, at North Fulton Golf Course.
In its fourth year, what began as an idea for a fun, nighttime golf tournament benefiting Junior Achievement, has transformed into a sold-out summer charity event. Glow on the Green combines a 4-man moonlit golf scramble, live music, and libations with an impressive roster of Georgia-based sponsors.
“We are so grateful for our continued partnership with Payscape, ” said Jack Harris, President and CEO, JA of Georgia, “The benefits from this fun-filled evening will help impact more than 170,000 students in the upcoming school year, and support our transformation of education in Georgia.”
A huge thank you to our sponsors: Sterling Risk Advisors, Waffle House, Milner, NMI, The Meier and Linnartz Family Foundation, FAPS, Iberia Bank, Jump!, Yuengling, Icebox, Republic Social House, Grind House, Lagunitas, Atlanta Beverage Company, Miller Brothers, Dean Dollar Band, Five Paces Inn, Career Builder, and Troutman & Sanders.
“At Payscape we operate under simple principle of paying it forward. Our relationship with Junior Achievement allows us to play a part in empowering and enriching the lives of our future generations,” says Adam Bloomston, Co-Founder and Chief Financial Officer at Payscape.
Junior Achievement is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices.
