Fayette FACTOR Selected as Non-Profit Beneficiary for the 2021 Clubs of Peachtree City Charity Classic


The Clubs of Peachtree City, a leader in Private Clubs in Fayette County, announces that it will host its 2021 Charity Classic, the company’s annual major philanthropic open-house event, which will take place during October at their Fayette County Golf and Country Clubs. For these three events, their private clubs will be open to the community, so guests can experience a fun, eventful day of activities.  This year’s theme focuses on unity: “Together we care…United we can!” 

All events at the three clubs, Braelinn, Flat Creek and Whitewater are open to the general public.  Funds raised will benefit local non-profit Fayette FACTOR and The Employee Partners Care Foundation, each a 501 (c)3.  Fayette FACTOR has been committed to our community’s well-being for over 20 years, and was the recipient of the 2020 Piedmont Fayette Nonprofit Award of Excellence from the Fayette Chamber of Commerce for service to Fayette County.

Dawn Oparah, Executive Director of Fayette FACTOR, states, “We are delighted to be a major recipient of the 2021 Charity Classic. These funds will enable us to continue to strategically promote Fayette County’s community well-being, including addressing important issues such as mental health; early learning initiatives that support parents of children 0-5; and support Fayette community human service organizations working on identified community issues.”

The Employee Partners Care Foundation will also benefit from this year’s Charity Classic. This program, created to provide assistance to employees and their immediate families during times of need, has helped over 2,100 ClubCorp employees by granting over $2.5 million since its inception in 2007.  With over 20,000 Employee Partners, 98% of all requests are approved and the E.P.C.F. receives five requests for assistance every week.
