EAST POINT, GA--(Marketwire - Aug 13, 2012) - One of the prominent extended stay hotels in Atlanta, GA has again stepped forward to help raise funds to support the Wounded Warrior Project. For its second year, the stylish Courtyard Atlanta Airport West participated in the annual CSX Heroes Charity Golf Tournament hosted by the Atlanta Division Inclusion Council to support the Wounded Warrior Foundation.
With the donation of refreshments and gift certificates for the fund-raising event's silent auction, the Courtyard by Marriott Atlanta Airport West assisted in raising more than $14,000 for this worthy cause. This year's golf tournament was held April 28, 2012 at the Orchard Hills Golf Club in Newman, GA and proceeds from the event well exceeded last year's total of $12,000.

To attain these goals the nonprofit organization provides unique and direct programs and services that ease the burdens of the wounded and their families, aid in the recovery process and aid in the transition back to civilian life.
"This is a great event that has a great cause," said Leslie James, director of sales at the Courtyard, a premier choice among College Park, GA hotels. "We are proud to partner with an organization that gives back to the soldiers, they deserve it!"
