As part of our defined Corporate Culture, CONA Services LLC is committed to meaningful community engagement. One such opportunity occurred on Monday, May 9, 2016 at The Golf Club of Georgia in Alpharetta, Georgia with the 22nd annual Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities Golf Classic. The event is held each spring to raise awareness and funds for the local Atlanta houses. All in all, the event raised over $190,000 to help families in need right here in Atlanta. Team CONA combined the efforts of CONA Associates and partners from Accenture, Baer Group, Cap Gemini, Coca-Cola Florida Beverages, Insight Group, JDC Group and Staffing Technologies. In total we fielded 5 teams in the ‘best ball-shamble” format along with a financial contribution of more than $20,000.
In addition to being Captain of Team CONA, former Atlanta Falcons player and current CNN Sports TV anchor Coy Wire, served as Master of Ceremonies for the event. During the awards ceremony, Coy was in a position to congratulate the Team CONA foursome sponsored by consulting partner JDC Groupfor placing 2nd overall with a Net score of 48 (yes, as in 24 under!). Members of this team included Rhett Bingham and Kevin Ashworth of JDC along with Steve Priestly and Rob Hadley of CONA. Well done guys!
Comments from the participants was that it was a great opportunity to help worthy local charities with great ties to the Coca-Cola system. It was also an chance to bond with colleagues and partners on a fantastic spring day in Georgia.
