THE ADAM CORPORATION, AMERICAN MOMENTUM BANK AND MIRAMONT
ANNOUNCE “PLAY HOOKY FOR HARVEY” FUNDRAISING EFFORT
BRYAN/COLLEGE STATION, Texas–The
Adam Corporation, American Momentum Bank and Miramont Country Club (“Miramont”)
announced a fundraising initiative that will welcome interested golfers to play
at Miramont’s renowned golf course. All proceeds will go to One America Appeal (www.oneamericaappeal.org), which is
coordinated by the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation located in
College Station. Its mission is to aid victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and
Hurricane Irma in Florida. All funds received will be matched by The Adam
Corporation and American Momentum Bank and contributed to One America Appeal.
The fundraiser, called “Play Hooky for Harvey,” will allow any
golfer to play at Miramont from Monday, October 30 to Thursday, November 2 for
fee of $125 per individual player or $500 for a foursome.
“We are thrilled to be able to
offer golfers the opportunity to play at a beautiful and exclusive golf course
for a great cause,” said Miramont General Manager Aaron Dawson. “We’ve all been
touched and inspired by the numerous scenes we have witnessed of people helping
one another in the aftermath of the storms. To see the devastation and then the
outpouring of help has been both heartbreaking and uplifting. But there is
still so much to be done in Houston, throughout the Gulf Coast region and along
the coast of Florida.”
Hurricane Harvey, which came
ashore on August 25, was the most powerful hurricane to hit Texas in more than
50 years. In a recent assessment, Texas Governor Greg Abbott projected damage
from $150 billion to $180 billion, calling it more costly than epic Hurricanes
Katrina or Sandy, which devastated New Orleans in 2005 and New York City in
2012, respectively. Hurricane Irma, which hit Florida on September 10, was the
most intense Atlantic hurricane to strike the United States since Katrina.
Chuck Watson, an analyst with the disaster research group Enki Research,
estimated that Irma caused approximately $172 billion in total damage.
The waters have receded, but the
restoration process is still in its beginning stages. The Adam Corporation has
businesses in the states of Texas and Florida and identified One American
Appeal as the charitable organization in which to direct its relief efforts.
One American Appeal is a joint appeal by all five living former American
Presidents (Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and
Barack Obama), encouraging citizens to support Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane
Irma recovery efforts in both Texas and Florida.
“I can’t thank Mr. and Mrs. Don
and Donna Adam and their companies enough for supporting this fundraising
effort,” said Dawson. “The Adam family truly has a heart of gold.”
