St. Mary’s Based Country Club Hosts Fundraiser for Employees
Osprey Cove Country Club Members & Community Raise $34,200 for Club Employees Affected by COVID-19
St. Mary’s, GA (April 23,2020) – Osprey Cove Country Club is proud to share the results of the “Support Our Osprey Cove Club Employees’ Fundraiser,” which took place from March 28 to April 3, 2020. More than 250 families and groups in the Osprey Cove community participated to raise more than $34,200 for Osprey Cove Country Club employees that were affected by the pandemic.
This event was spearheaded by the Osprey Cove Women’s Club, Women’s Golf Association, Men’s Golf Association, Men’s Tennis, Women’s Tennis, the Wednesday Bridge Club, and Duplicate Bridge Club. While these groups are all centered at Osprey Cove, the entire effort was coordinated and driven by the residents and community leaders. More than 250 resident families and groups rallied to raise over $34,200, which was distributed to 37 employees.
“The outpouring of love and support by our members is incredible,” said Miranda Newmans, General Manager of the Osprey Cove Country Club. “The members of the community wanted to show their appreciation for the team at Osprey Cove Country Club. While the money is slated for the Osprey Cove employees, the member-led fundraiser speaks volumes about the Osprey Cove team. We have worked to make a difference for our members, and now they are reciprocating in a grand way.”
The 37 employees that have received funding included 27 laid off employees and 10 employees who saw a decrease in their take home income, due to decreased hours or tips in midst of the pandemic. All employees received funds equivalent to one month of their average pay.
“At Osprey Cove, and at all of the Bobby Jones Link’s clubs, giving back is a top priority,” said Whitney Crouse, Co-Founder of Bobby Jones Links. “Thanks to the Osprey Cove community and members, 37 employees and their families will receive funds to help them through this crisis. We are proud and thankful of the community for coming together to show their support during these unprecedented times.”
One of the main missions of Bobby Jones Links is to give back to the community and to assist clubs as they navigate difficult times. This fundraiser organized by the members of the Osprey Cove community showcases their support of the country club and its staff.
Osprey Cove remains open for members during the Stay at Home executive order for the State of Georgia. The club has adapted many operating procedures to keep members, guests, and staff safe, while also enforcing social distancing.
