ROSWELL, Ga. – Grab your clubs for a good cause. The Roswell Rotary will host two tourneys this year, the Aubrey Greenway Golf Tournament and the Hagan Cup Classic tennis tournament, both held this year Sept. 8 at the Country Club of Roswell.

Money raised from these tournaments will go toward 37 local nonprofits and charities. Last year, the tournament enabled Roswell Rotary to give $194,000 to needy groups such as Star House Foundation, North Fulton Community Charities, Child Development Association, Chattahoochee Nature Center, Senior Services of North Fulton, Homestretch, Camp Grace, Habitat for Humanity and Jacob’s Ladder.

Community service is an integral part of Rotary.

“Involvement makes the businesses better,” said Rotarian Bob Burke. “It makes the goods and services that we can provide to the community better. Not only here in Roswell, but beyond Roswell. Their active involvement touches everything from our local community in Roswell to the nation to the international, especially since Rotary is an international organization.”

Golf registration begins Sept. 8 at 7 a.m. Tennis registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the games continue until 5:30 p.m. when “On the Deck” casino opens to raise money. A celebratory dinner will take place at 6:30 p.m. All events take place at Country Club of Roswell, 2500 Club Springs Drive, Roswell.
