On Oct. 22, more than 190 golfers from across the country teed up to raise funds for research for a cure. The 37th Annual Hit ’Em for Hemophilia golf tournament was held at The Golf Club of Georgia in Alpharetta. Despite a rainy start, the weather cleared just in time for a perfect day of golf!

Before the shotgun start, golfers heard from Andrew and his mother, Alison, about how getting the right medicine has helped him to play sports rather than watching his friends from the window. This wouldn’t have been possible, Alison said, without Hemophilia of Georgia and without the research to help improve treatments for those living with inherited bleeding disorders.

The Food on the Fairway sponsors showcased their specialties. Tito’s, Del Frisco’s, Capital Grille, Zoe’s Kitchen, Ceviche, Tiff’s Treats, Ruth’s Chris, and Sugarland Distilling Company provided drinks and samples to the golfers and volunteers at the tournament.

Other event highlights were the silent and live auctions. Golfers, reception guests, and volunteers bid on sports memorabilia, electronics, travel experiences, and jewelry throughout the day using their smartphones. Two of the most coveted items of the afternoon were a table at the Braves Hall of Fame event and autographed Freddie Freeman helmet.
