The Honor Project's fifth annual WildMayhem Golf Tournament was held Oct. 24 at Cobblestone Park Golf Club in Blythewood. The tournament raised $25,232.02 for two local charities. This year's recipients were the ColaJazz Foundation and PAALS - Palmetto Animal Assisted Life Services. Proceeds were equally divided between the two foundations.
The check presentation was held at J’s Corner in November. Owner and founder of PAALS, Jen Rogers, along with the owner/founder of ColaJazz Foundation, Mark Rapp, were present to accept the donations.
Executive Director Parris Claytor Balazs said everyone was thrilled this year's donation pushed the collective amount raised by the Honor Project for local charities over the $100,000 mark.
“Each year, The Honor Project has selected up to three charities of diverse foundational backgrounds. Over the years, the Honor Project has supported breast cancer research, Special Olympics, first responders, in-patient hospitalized children, the autism society, and more, and we were so grateful this year to be able to support our furry friends as PAALS and the ColaJazz Foundation Outreach Program. The tournament was a huge success. Thank you to our many industry partners , friends and loved ones who have helped support such amazing causes."
In the fall of 2015, The Honor Project introduced its first 'WildMayhem Charitable Golf Tournament, Raffle and Auction.' The organization has continued to host the tournament, choosing different non-profits to accept the donations each year.
