Stewart Cink, local PGA Tour star, is aiming to raise $600,000 for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) via Twitter. The Challenge is a three-week long fundraising Twitter campaign. In recognition of the $600,000 contribution to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta by AT&T, Stewart seeks to double that amount by raising another $600,000, for a grand total of $1.2 million, with the help of his 1.2 million Twitter followers.
From now through, Tuesday, April 27th, Cink will encourage his followers and supporters to keep the community spirit of the past Atlanta Golf Classic tournament alive and help his local children’s hospital, CHOA. CHOA is one of the largest clinical care providers for children in the country.
