Driven by United Way of Hall County, that network, Unite Us, will make communication and referrals more streamlined between community nonprofits and service organizations, helping to connect individuals and families with the social services and help they need in real time, according to a Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) news release.
“Unite Us connects community organizations in one system to better meet the needs of our community,” said Jessica Dudley, president and chief professional officer of United Way of Hall County. “This allows us to serve our neighbors when they need it most, not after.”
The Medical Center Open is an annual event that benefits nonprofits in the area. Proceeds from past tournaments have gone to Good News Clinics, Gateway Domestic Violence Center, Boys and Girls Clubs of Lanier, Georgia Mountain Food Bank and the Hub at Gainesville High School, to name a few.
Many participants and sponsors return each year, with this year’s event including more than 200 participants and 100 sponsors. Bank of America was the premier sponsor.
