The Contrack International, Inc. 2014 AFSP Golf Tournament raised over $53,000 and attracted over 150 golfers to help bring awareness and raise funds for suicide prevention. The 2014 Tournament took place on Wednesday, May 21st at Bull Run Golf Course in Haymarket, Virginia.
In addition to the 150 golfers, the Tournament attracted 13 corporate sponsors, including Contrack International, Inc., who served as title sponsor for this year's event. Other corporate sponsors included: Booz, Allen, Hamilton; Buckley Sanders LLP; Carol Hazen First Savings Mortgage; Gail Romansky with Keller Williams, Reston; LoveStruckImages.com; Potomac High School; Public Bar; Roberts Oxygen; Shapiro Lifschitz & Schram; Troutman Sanders; UMTTR; and Vicki Johnson & Associates, LLC.
Tournament proceeds benefit both the local National Capital Area Chapter of AFSP, as well as the national AFSP organization. Locally, funds raised by the tournament will aid community programs such as suicide prevention and education in schools and within at-risk communities, and survivor support programs. At the national level, proceeds from the Tournament will help AFSP fund research into the causes of suicide to help find ways to further prevent it.
The NCAC would like to thank all of the golfers, volunteers, and sponsors who helped make this year's Tournament our best one yet. If you are interested in taking part in next year's tournament as either a golfer or a corporate sponsor, please contact Ryan Necomb (firstname.lastname@example.org).
