Fan Support

The checks for the American Cancer Society have been pouring in. Thanks for all your support. Your items will be mailed this week. Please don't send anymore checks for the ACS, as I will be mailing them off with a letter today. If anyone still wants to get their autographed photo or baseball, they can make a $10 donation to the Georgia Chapter of Safari Club International (GASCI). This organization has always welcomed John with open arms, and he will be golfing in their tournament next week. Please send your donations before the 12th so John can present them at the event. Details below:

-Former Atlanta Braves Closer John Rocker to Attend-
ATLANTA, GA --- August 30, 2006 --- The Georgia Chapter of Safari Club International (GASCI) will hold its 3rd annual Safari Wish Golf Tournament on Tuesday, September 12th at the Trophy Club of Atlanta in Alpharetta. Former Atlanta Braves closer John Rocker will participate. Corporate sponsorships and golf openings are available. For more information call Patti at 770-569-1100.
The Safari Wish program raises funds to take children with disabilities and life-threatening illnesses on outdoor adventures. SCI Members and Chapters through the Safari Wish program try to grant as many lifelong wishes to these children as possible.

“Seeing these children enjoy themselves motivates all of us to contribute and keep this program going. Unfortunately, we are limited to the number of wishes we can grant each year. When you watch a child who is ill having fun and being able to forget about doctors and treatments for a while, it warms your heart. Thanks to people like John Rocker, who has made contributions to the organization, we are able to accommodate even more children,” said James Lakeman, president of the Georgia Chapter of SCI.
The event will include golf, dinner, a silent auction and fun for everyone. Auction items include such items as: celebrity autographed memorabilia, guns, crossbows, hunting and golfing gear and hunting trips. A GMC truck will be awarded to two hole-in-one winners, courtesy of Carl Black GMC.
The Georgia Chapter of Safari Club International (GASCI) is a non-profit organization that supports wildlife conservation and helps children with handicaps and life-threatening illnesses go on dream hunts. GASCI has taken more than 30 kids on Safari Wish hunts from south Georgia to the wilds of Alaska. For more information call 770-205-6973 or visit http://www.gasci.org/.
