Savannah Office Donates $5,000 to Junior Achievement

The Savannah office donated $5,000 to Junior Achievement (JA) of Coastal Georgia as the presenting sponsor for the 16th Annual JA Golf Classic Tournament held May 7 at The Club at Savannah Harbor.

“We couldn’t be more excited to support such a worthy youth organization,” said Ryan Price, vice president and division manager of Rives E. Worrell, a JE Dunn Construction Company. “The monies raised from the tournament help further the advancement of the children who benefit from JA’s programs, which empower students to own their economic success.”

All proceeds from the golf tournament fundraiser will benefit JA of Coastal Georgia, a nonprofit organization helping to bridge the gap between businesses and youth education communities. JA works in partnership with the local school system providing specialized programs aimed at teaching financial literacy, workforce development, and business ethics to more than 14,000 students in the area.

“We are so grateful to have the support of Rives E. Worrell/JE Dunn,” said Johnathon Barrett, vice president of statewide operations for JA. “Thanks to their sponsorship dollars, we are able to host one of the best charity golf tournaments in Savannah and raise critical funds to support the important work we do with students. For many, JA serves as a real defining moment in their lives.”
