Since 1991, more than 600 area businesses and individuals have played in the Turkey Trot Invitational forming a business network among HBN Foundation members and corporate sponsors.  The Turkey Trot Invitational is one of Georgia's oldest and largest charity tournaments generating over $2.5 million for other charitable organizations during its 28 year history.  The HBN Foundation was founded by the original 16 members of the Turkey Trot Invitational under the premise that business and partnerships could be conducted while playing golf.  Player registration, breakfast and gift exchange begins at 9:00 AM, opening ceremonies and shotgun start at 10:00 AM.

As a sponsor or participant in the Turkey Trot Invitational, you have a special opportunity to support our "Army" and "Navy" teams competing for the 5th Annual Army Navy Challenge Cup.  Each team of veterans are former patients/clients of the Shepherd Center SHARE Military Initiative and Navy Safe Harbor Foundation.  All have received the very best in medical, rehabilitative care and family services.  All net proceeds from your donation/sponsorship of the Turkey Trot, Patriots Party and Army Navy Challenge go to benefit both of our veterans' charities.  Go Army!  Go Navy!
