A natural disaster has once again affected many within the golf community. As with hurricanes in recent years, Hurricane Dorian continues to impact the Bahamas and much of the East Coast, devastating golf facilities and altering the lives of GCSAA members, their families, and their staffs.
In times such as this, the GCSAA Disaster Relief Fund is critical in ensuring GCSAA members who need help get it. Developed after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the fund is designed to provide assistance to members personally affected by natural disasters. Unfortunately, Hurricane Dorian isn’t the last natural disaster that will impact GCSAA members. It’s essential for the fund to be adequately prepared when calls for help come.
For the third straight year, Better Billy Bunker has announced a matching program for those wanting to show their support for GCSAA members through the Disaster Relief Fund. BBB will match the first $10,000 in individual and chapter donations made to the fund.
“Our goal with this matching initiative is to encourage as many contributions as possible,” Better Billy Bunker officials said in a statement. “Donating to the GCSAA Disaster Relief Fund is the perfect way for everyone in our industry to show support for friends and colleagues who are in need. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those affected by Hurricane Dorian.”
