Jet Linx Atlanta Sponsors Charity Clays
For the fourth year, Jet Linx Atlanta has served as a proud sponsor of Atlanta Charity Clays – an event that raises funds for local youth organizations, including Boys and Girls Club of Metro Atlanta, CURE Childhood Cancer and Jumpstart Atlanta. The event spanned over a three day period, beginning with a Kick-Off Gala held in the upscale Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. The Jet Linx Atlanta executive and Client Services team was present at the Gala, where guests were welcomed by the Jet Linx sponsored Registration table and Auction Lounge. “The venue was outstanding and truly held a Southern elegance and charm,” said Jet Linx Atlanta Base President Ron Smith. “Our logo was present everywhere, along with seven members of our local team. The turnout was excellent and really kept our team busy all night – welcoming guests and networking at our exhibit booth and around the venue.”
“As guests walked in to register, they were welcomed by the Jet Linx team and a specialty cocktail appropriately named “The Aviator” – a refreshing concoction of Aviation Gin, Elderflower Liqueur, Curacao and fresh lemon juice. We sponsored Auction Lounge, so while guests were walking around the bidding tables, our team was there ready to talk all things private aviation,” explained Director of Administration Chandler Hartley.
For the next two days, teams participated in a shooting clay tournament held at The Burge Plantation, a historic private hunting and shooting club located in Newton County, Georgia. “Our team hosted shooters on both days of the tournament. The tournament was great fun and our team finished in the middle of the pack when it came to scoring,” explained Smith. “Many of our clients are involved in the event, so it is always great to join them in supporting a wonderful cause.”
Hartley volunteered during the shooting events, along with Jet Linx Atlanta Director of Jet Card Sales Meghan Hogan. “One of the best parts of the weekend was volunteering and having the opportunity to watch both our team and our clients participate in the tournament,” said Harley. “It was a great way for us to connect and catch up with them, all while having fun supporting a great cause. This year’s event raised $300,000 for sixteen Atlanta area children’s charities. Our team loves being involved with this event every year and making a difference by supporting local charities.”
