CCA Global Partners, together with industry friends and flooring suppliers, joined forces Sept. 24 for the sixth annual Alan Greenberg Charity Golf Tournament benefiting the Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF). The long standing tradition will continue in a new location, Barnsley Gardens, located 60 miles north of Atlanta, Georgia, in the foot hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. “In the economic climate we face today, it is more important than ever to support organizations like the FCIF that assist those who have fallen on hard times,” said Howard Brodsky, chairman and co-ceo of CCA Global Partners and co-chair of the tournament. “We are pleased to support this worthwhile organization which provides a lifeline for those in the flooring industry who have nowhere else to turn in times of need.”

“It is an honor to be hosting the Alan Greenberg Charity Tournament again this year,” states Rick Bennet, co-ceo of CCA Global Partners. “This tournament is a wonderful opportunity to join with our friends and colleagues in supporting the FCIF.” Since the first tournament in 2003, the event has raised more than $750,000 for the FCIF. Funds raised have helped many in the floor covering industry in their time of hardship.

“The Alan Greenberg Charity Golf Tournament is not only one of the major sources of income annually for the FCIF, it has the additional benefit of significantly raising the awareness of the foundation’s charitable efforts on behalf of those in the floor covering industry facing catastrophic illness and financial hardship,” said D. Christopher Davis, president/ceo of the World Floor Covering Association, and President of FCIF. “The tournament provides a forum for industry partners to interact in a fun atmosphere while performing a very noble effort. It’s something that Alan Greenberg, as a major supporter of FCIF would be proud to see continue in his name.”
