Ape Conservation Effort to Host Gorilla Golf Tournament Sept. 11 in Roswell, Georgia
Ape Conservation Effort, Inc. (ACE) will host the second annual Gorilla Golf Tournament on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012 at the Brookfield Country Club, 100 Willow Run, Roswell, Georgia 30075. Each of the 32 golfers will raise a minimum of $500 to participate in the tournament, and all proceeds will benefit the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International. Registration begins at 9:15 and includes a continental breakfast and buffet lunch. Awards will honor the top three golfers, the longest drive and a “closest to the gorillas” contest.
Anyone can help by sponsoring a hole during the tournament. A $100 tax deductible donation will purchase a sign with the donor’s name on one of the holes at the golf course, and donors can sponsor more than one hole. Individuals and businesses can also donate promotional items for the golfers to enjoy, or sponsor a golfer.
ACE is a Georgia not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation comprised of volunteer members who share a passion for animals and a commitment to saving the great apes (bonobos, chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans), all of whom are endangered. Members of ACE hope to raise awareness of the plight of the great apes and support for their conservation.
