May 2013 — J. Smith Lanier & Co. is proud to announce over $200,000 net revenue was recently raised at the Ninth Annual J. Smith Lanier & Co. Charity Classic to Benefit the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children. From 2005-2013, J. Smith Lanier & Co. has raised over $1.6 million for the Foundation.

The event was held at Chateau Elan Golf Club on Tuesday, May 7th, 2013. Over 300 golfers from around the Southeast and several BTFC children and their families were on hand to play golf and meet the sponsors.

“For the ninth year we were honored to be the title corporate sponsor of the Annual J. Smith Lanier & Co. Charity Golf Classic for the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children. This event would not be possible without the many sponsors and volunteers who graciously give their time to such a wonderful foundation,” said J. Smith Lanier & Co. Chairman and CEO, D. Gaines Lanier.

Mary Moore, executive director of the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children said, “We are extremely grateful to J. Smith Lanier & Co. for the nearly decade-long support they have provided to our organization – not only through their corporate sponsorship, but through the countless contributions of J. Smith Lanier & Co. employees who make us a stronger and better Foundation.”

As a direct result of the success of the J. Smith Lanier & Co. Charity Classic, the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children has grown its “Butterfly Fund” from a program serving Georgia families only in 2005, to a program that serves children and families in nine states at a rate of $400,000 annually today.  The Butterfly Fund provides emergency financial assistance for families when their children are on treatment for brain cancer and they have nowhere else to turn.
