The Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s 14th annual Golf Tournament was hosted by Gatlinburg Golf Course in May, and it is with deepest gratitude that we acknowledge the support and contributions of our premier event sponsor, Americomm, and our event sponsors: Charter Business, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, Citizens National Bank, SmartBank, Food City, Tennessee State Bank, WonderWorks, Pepsi, Eagle Distributing, Brochure Distribution Services, Hollywood Star Cars, Smoky Mountain Outdoors, Bush’s Beans, Best Western Twin Islands, S&D Coffee, Dick’s Last Resort, Ober Gatlinburg, Mountain National Bank, Greenbrier Restaurant, Log Cabin Pancake House, Sidney James Motel, Mark McCown, Gatlin-Burlier, The Mountain Press, Thomas Group, Universal Forms, Calhoun’s, Rich Benjamin & Associates, Tennessee Express Tours, Fahlgren Mortine, Paramore, and Reserve Direct, without whom the Foundation would not have enjoyed such a successful fundraiser.

We would also like to thank our generous business community for their donation of prizes. Without the above-mentioned supporters, we would be unable to provide scholarships and educational training to our community.

Thank you to our 2013 Golf Tournament volunteers, and we name them individually because of the magnitude of work it takes to accomplish such a major event: Gene Peitso, Sherri Webb, Olwen Claiborne, Regina Stone, Jared Durrett, Bud Lawson, Chuck Winstead, Joan Brock, Paula King, Anne Hewitt, Claudette Geoffrion, and Elizabeth Phillips.

Additionally, we want to express thanks to Rick Tucker and the staff of the Gatlinburg Golf Course as they were a tremendous help and we commend their contributions.
