The tournament was followed by an awards banquet sponsored by Aetna; Atlanta Consulting Group; RL Solutions; SJ Collins Enterprises; and UnitedHealthcare.
Matt Nichols, Senior Sales Representative at Surgical Specialties of Georgia, which served as one of the Bronze Par Sponsors of the tournament, said that his company is proud to be a part of the future of DeKalb Medical.
“As a local business, we know the importance of giving back to the community.
