The 2019 Harry Maziar Classic Golf Tournament raised more than $450,000 through contributions and a silent auction to benefit the Marcus JCC and provide scholarship funds. The MJCCA BB&T 11th annual tournament at the Atlanta Country Club in Marietta included 140 golfers.
The tournament was chaired by David Kusiel and co-chaired by Doug Kuniansky.
“This event is the MJCCA’s largest annual fundraiser,” Kusiel said. “This year’s annual golf tournament brings the total raised to $3 million over the past 11 years, something that we are extremely proud of,” he said.
“We are grateful to the golf tournament participants, whose donations through this event support the mission of the MJCCA, helping ensure that scholarships are available to families in our community,” said center CEO Jared Powers.
Each year, the golf tournament honors an outstanding member of the MJCCA whose leadership and dedication have helped shape Atlanta’s Jewish community. This year, the MJCCA is proud to honor Steven Cadranel, owner and president of Arris Realty Partners. He is a past president of the MJCCA, an active board member and recipient of the organization’s prestigious Erwin Zaban Bridge Builder Award.
Cadranel sits on the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta board and has served on the Jewish Community Center Association of North America’s national board. He is also a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers, a life member of the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, and a director of TWO Capital Partners, an apartment development company.
“We were so pleased to honor Steven at this year’s Harry Maziar Classic, for his outstanding dedication to the community,” Kusiel said. “A board member and past president of the MJCCA, Steven’s vision and guidance have helped enable the MJCCA to impact the lives of so many in our vibrant Jewish community.”
The winners of the tournament were Bruce Morris for the putting contest; Keats Baldwin for the longest drive in the male division; London Andes for the longest drive in the female division; and Rick Bennett for the hole-in-one.
The winning teams were: Barry Danz, Evan Toporek, Chris Beaudin and Marty Kogon for first place; Michael Coles, Rick Bennett, Rick Suid and Benji Halpern for second place; Paul Freeman, Adam Freeman, Jay Dermer and Scott Alterman for third place; and Bryan Taylor, Harry Maziar, Todd Maziar and Neal Maziar for fourth place.
