Action Ministries Receives Funds Raised by Augusta Exchange Club

The Augusta Exchange Club distributed 58 checks totaling $165,000 to charities Thursday in what members referred to as one of their favorite days of the year, reported The Augusta Chronicle on Feb. 25. Action Ministries in Augusta was named as a recipient.

Each year the club distributes money raised from its two annual fundraisers – the Georgia-Carolina State and the Augusta Charity Classic, which takes place March 28 at Champions Retreat Golf Club – to local organizations making a difference in the community. This year donations exceeded $190,000, with the majority given out at Thursday’s luncheon at First Baptist Church in Augusta.

“We’ve only seen this much,” he said holding two fingers about an inch apart, “of what these guys do.”
