Player: Roger Akers - Managing Partner, Akers Capital
The reasons people become passionate about one cause versus another revolves around personal experiences and also the people involved in supporting the cause. In the case of the Capital Cup Golf Tournament the ability to support one or many causes is easily available. I can basically fulfill my philanthropic giving simply and efficiently all at the same time even if multiple causes are involved. What could be more simple.
Being a cancer survivor I will be supporting the American Cancer Society. A great organization. Secondly, the people involved in this event are the best people I know. We as a community need to support the charities, the businesses and efforts of these wonderful organizers. They are tireless in their efforts. I am very excited about this event becoming the best fund raising event in our region. You should get excited as well!!!
