2018 Tournament Results

Thank you to everyone who supported the 15th Johnny Leathers, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament held on May 19th at Woodmont Golf and Country Club. We were blessed to have raised $28,000 which is the most ever raised with the most golfers (144) ever playing and sunshine shining even though rain was predicted. These funds will help to fund counseling for those needing financial assistant in the Atlanta Area.  Click here to look at the Tournament Gallery.
