"We had an amazing turnout by participants and sponsors," said AMES Vice President of Technical Operations Jim Savastano, "who were very generous in support of these worthy causes. We sold out way in advance and far exceeded our goal."

"I also want to thank the many volunteers who help make events like this possible," said Savastano.

The golf tournament is one of several charity events sponsored by ATSG companies each year. Among them was the company's fourth annual car show held earlier in August that raised an additional $3,100 for charity, and a month-long food drive that collected more than 600 pounds of canned goods for local food pantries.
