The global pandemic has put a lot of financial strain on students and families. Now more than ever, it’s important to help those students who are working hard to improve their future by furthering their education. That’s why Club Elegant members are asking you to join us in this Go Fund Me Charity campaign to provide scholarships and other forms of assistance to deserving Oconee County students and families. Over the years, many of you may have donated or participated in our Willie C. McNeill Golf Tournament, which has helped fund our charitable contributions. In 2021, we dedicate this campaign to the memory of James Mazyck, a club member and tireless supporter of the golf tournament who passed away in 2020. This Go Fund Me Charity campaign will provide the same level of assistance as your past support. We are asking friends, previous donors, and new allies to donate whatever you can to this effort. All gifts are TAX DEDUCTIBLE and made to our 501(c)(3) nonprofit, the Club Elegant Foundation. Tell your friends; share this link with others; and join us in this worthy cause!
Club Elegant was established in 1964 as a civic and social club. Since its inception, the club members have participated in various community and charitable activities, such as sponsoring Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts, preparing food baskets for the elderly, assisting at-risk families, and hosting an annual Christmas dance. In the 1990s, the club began providing scholarships to Oconee County students, funded in part by the club’s Willie C. McNeill Golf Tournament. Coach Mac, as he was affectionately known, was a coach, youth advocate and mentor to many Oconee County students. He was also an active member of Club Elegant. The golf tournament has been a perfect way to honor Coach Mac’s legacy and to make a positive impact on students who plan to continue their education after high school. Another Club Elegant member, James Mazyck, was a staunch supporter and organizer of the golf tournament for many years. We honor his memory and years of commitment with this Go Fund Me Charity effort.
