Our relationship with Junior Achievement allows us to play a part in empowering and enriching the lives of our future generations
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 20, 2014
Payscape Advisors recently presented a check for $18,500 to the non-profit organization, Junior Achievement 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 Advisors, at North Fulton Golf Course.
In just two years, 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.
“At Payscape we operate under the key principle of 'paying it forward.' From the employees and clients, to our partners and products, we continue to highlight that standard by delivering the best technology and service to our customers and communities. 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 Advisors.
Dozens of local businesses, including State Bank & Trust Company, Waffle House, RegPoint Solutions, Milner, TriNet, GoEnergy, Palmer & Cay, and Lovies BBQ, as well as global brands like Troutman & Sanders sponsored the event.
“Junior Achievement of Georgia is grateful to Payscape Advisors for their continued partnership. The annual evening golf tournament is one of many ways the company continues to show their support for JA and our mission to inspire young people to own their future economic success,” said Jack Harris, president and CEO of Junior Achievement of Georgia.
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.
