On Monday – April 24th, with over two inches of rain the night before, and a heavy mist at times during the first nine holes, 17 foursomes took to the soggy links at Polo Golf & Country Club in Cumming, Georgia. The annual event managed to raise about $12,500 for the Heery International Foundation (HIF). The first-place team from Oasis Consulting Services will have their company name permanently engraved on the Heery Cup. The runner-up team from Carr Riggs & Ingram just squeaked by the third-place team from OFS Brands.

About the Heery International Foundation
Established in 2009, the Heery International Foundation (HIF) is a 501c3 tax exempt non-profit corporation. From the time of its inception, the Heery International Foundation’s theme has been to “Shape Brighter Futures”, through fund raising to support charitable organizations that support The Well-Being of Young People; Safe and Affordable Housing for the Poor and Elderly; and The Improvement of the Environment. Through employee payroll contributions, and proceeds from events like our annual golf tournaments, the Foundation will continue supporting our communities through educational and charitable organizations. In December of 2016, HIF issued 16 grants for a total amount of $60,000 to organizations such as; Kids Chance of Georgia; Make-A-Wish Georgia; Early Learning Property Management; Dream Weavers of Georgia; Atlanta Children’s Shelter; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta; and Atlanta Public Schools – Hope Hill Elementary School.
