Halstead/Metroflor Hosting Golf Tournament to Fight Addiction
Calhoun, GA, February 21, 2019-Halstead/Metroflor created an Addiction Crisis charity (HMAC) and a nonprofit organization to raise funds for combating the addiction epidemic, affecting hundreds of thousands of individuals and their families nationwide. The goal is to provide rehabilitation “scholarships” to families who otherwise would not be financially able to help save their loved ones suffering from Substance Addiction Disorders (SADs).
Halstead/Metroflor will host a fundraising golf tournament on April 30 at the Top Golf Facility in Atlanta. Proceeds will go towards HMAC’s goal of raising $500K over the next two years through a “Save an Addict. Save a Family” Go Fund Me page and other activities, which will be matched dollar for dollar by Metroflor/Halstead for a total of $1 million. The event will start with lunch at noon followed by play until 3:00 EST. The cost including lunch is $110 per person. All net proceeds will go to the Addiction Crisis charity.
In partnership with The Blanchard Institute, Halstead/Metroflor intends to achieve its goal through a 501c3 partnership with “Faith in Four: Recovery, Prevention, Education and Treatment.” Fully tax-deductible contributions will fund scholarships to the following addiction recovery facilities for those in need, who cannot otherwise afford treatment: The Blanchard Institute, Charlotte, North Carolina; Damascus Road Recovery, Covington, Georgia; Genesis Ministries, Kennesaw, Georgia; and Hope House, Port Jefferson, New York.
