Georgia-Pacific’s annual golf outing this week in support of cancer research and treatment centre City of Hope has raised more than $340,000.
The event – held on Monday at the TPC Sugarloaf golf club in Georgia – was again a sell-out.
“This year, we’re proud to have raised more than $340,000 for City of Hope and its life-saving mission to fight cancer,” said Scott Light, President of Georgia-Pacific Professional.
“We’ve all been affected by cancer in one way or another, whether through a family member or close friend. City of Hope works closely with hospitals across the country to discover and accelerate cures and treatments for this devastating disease [and] we’re proud to support their mission to ultimately find a cure, which will also have a lasting effect on the communities in which we work and serve."
“Georgia-Pacific has been such an integral catalyst in our mission to end cancer,” stated Matt Dodd, Senior Director of Corporate Philanthropy at City of Hope. “Each year, this event sells out, which is a true testament of Georgia-Pacific’s commitment and generosity towards helping find a cure to a disease that impacts so many we know and love.”
Since 1984, Georgia-Pacific has raised more than $5.1 million in support of life-saving cancer research and treatment at City of Hope.
