Ever wonder what it would be like to go without clean water on a scorching summer day? The people in the mountain village of Bayonnais, Haiti know all too well, and local community leaders are ready to help. John Blair, Managing Partner at Blair, Bohlé & Whitsitt, is helping the Ballantyne Rotary Club organize a charity golf tournament this Fall to fund a clean water initiative to improve sanitation and public health in the Haitian village of Bayonnais. The Haiti project was spearheaded by the efforts of Ballantyne Rotary member Tom Harman who has made numerous trips to the Caribbean island and has worked closely with the recently formed Rotary de Bayonnais.
John Blair has been an active member of Rotary since 2008 and was recently installed as President-elect of the Ballantyne Rotary Club. The Ballantyne Rotary Charity Golf Tournament is scheduled to be held Monday, October 8th at the TPC at Piper Glen, a 6,853 yard par 72 course designed by Arnold Palmer. Participants will play an 18-hole captain’s choice tournament with prizes awarded to the top three teams. Funds raised from the tournament will be further enhanced by support offered from Rotary International and will go directly toward the construction of clean water technology and public health education in Bayonnais, Haiti. Sponsorship opportunities are now available for businesses and individuals interested in offering support. All inquiries may be directed to Bob Lyberopoulos at TPC Piper Glen.
