On June 28, 2008, Jason Statts, a local musician, talented artist and very good friend, was a victim of a violent crime in Savannah, Ga. Jason was shot point-blank in the neck and suffered irreparable damage to his spinal column.    Since then, he has relied on government assistance to cover his mounting medical costs, and the support of his friends and family to keep him smiling. Cuts in his benefits have caused Jason’s health to decrease exponentially in the past few months. His family and friends are organizing a fundraiser to help fill in the gaps in his finances so that he can receive the benefits and medical assistance he requires.     For more information, please visit www.friendsofstatts.com or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

SAVANNAH MORNING NEWS IS HOSTING THE FIRST EVER AMATEUR TABLE TENNIS CLASSIC SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25TH AT THE ARMSTRONG CENTER. PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT THE UNION MISSION AND THE EMPTY STOCKING FUND.
 I am pleased to announce that the Savannah Morning News is going hold the first ever Savannah Amateur Table Tennis (Ping Pong) Classic on Saturday, October 25 at The Armstrong Center benefitting Union Mission and the Empty Stocking Fund.  All of the net proceeds from the event will be split equally between the two organizations and go towards those who need assistance in our community.  Festivities will include a 64-player round-robin tournament beginning at 3 p.m. with a player’s meeting.  At 4 p.m., the event gets into full swing with best of three matches between the players as the first stage of the bracketed tournament begins.  At 6 p.m., a celebration starts that goes throughout the night and includes food, drink, networking and cheering for your favorite players.   The event culminates with the championship match later in the evening.   In addition, depending on registrations, we are looking to add a women’s division and a senior’s division.  This is going to be fun.  Players are encouraged to dress in their favorite outfits/costumes and will enter the playing area to the tune of their favorite song.  We will have four Olympic size table tennis tables on hand and have former US National Table Tennis Team Member and 1996 US Olympic Alternate Derek May  on hand as well for an exhibition match.  We hope you join us in supporting this event by choosing to be a sponsor.  I have attached both the sponsor form and player registration to this communication for your consideration.  Sponsorships come with player registrations and guest tickets.  Our goal is to have at least 300 people in attendance.  And, the good news, the Georgia football team is off on that particular Saturday.

JUNIOR ACHIEVEMETN AND COLONILA GROUP 15TH ANNUAL SAVANNAH BUSINESS HALL OF FAME.
11/10

THE 15TH ANNUAL SAVANNAH BUSINESS HALL OF FAME IS BEING HOSTED BY THE JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT AND COLONIAL GROUP MONDAY NOVEMBER 10TH. THIS YEARS EVENT WILL HONOR JOE BUCK AND GENE CARTLEDGE.  Junior Achievement and Colonial Group Announce Laureates for 15th Annual Savannah Business Hall of Fame on November 10  This year’s event will honor Joe Buck and Gene Cartledge as 2014 Savannah Business Hall of Fame Inductees  SAVANNAH, Ga. – Junior Achievement of Georgia-Coastal Region is pleased to announce the names of the laureates for the 15th annual Savannah Business Hall of Fame being held on Monday, November 10, at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center. This year’s honorees are Dr. Joseph A. Buck and Eugene Cartledge.   Junior Achievement (JA), along with Colonial Group, will host this year’s Savannah Business Hall of Fame where inductees will be honored for their business accomplishments as well as their extensive contributions to the community.    A leader in education for our community with his commitment to the educational needs of students, Dr. Joe Buck has been the Savannah-Chatham County School Board President since 2006. As an administrator for almost 40 years at Armstrong State University, he built valuable relationships between the university and the community before retiring in 2006 as vice president of student affairs. He also assisted in the execution of two key leadership programs, Leadership Savannah and Leadership Georgia, which help professionals gain leadership skills and a greater understanding of their community.  Mr. Eugene Cartledge, a national business leader and advocate for young children, decided to make his home in Savannah after spending much of his career in Virginia and New York. As former president of Union Camp, the largest paper manufacturer in the United States, Cartledge is credited with leading the company through its largest expansion ever and supporting the development of The Landings. He also serves or has served as the director on the boards of many notable companies including Delta Airlines and Sunoco, hosts multiple charitable events at his home and has served on the Endowment Board of Bethesda Academy for the past six years.  According to Johnathon Barrett, vice president of JA of Georgia, this event provides a representation of what it takes to be successful to students.  “These inductees demonstrate to our children that the giving of one’s self is a large part of being successful,” he said. “In the words of Calvin Coolidge, ‘No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.’ I think our inductees are great testaments to that philosophy, giving back to the Savannah community and leaving a positive impression on the lives of young people.”  The Savannah Business Hall of Fame is Savannah’s premier black tie business event. The gala will be held at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center on Monday, November 10, beginning at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception, featuring an upscale silent auction. A three-course dinner and the awards ceremony will follow, featuring video montages produced by WTOC. The evening will culminate with a champagne toast to the inductees who will be honored. More than 500 guests are slated to attend the event. Sponsorship and tickets are available for the Savannah Business Hall of Fame.

CPR SEEKS HELP FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOGS
TFN

COASTAL PET RESCUE IS SEEKING DONATIONS FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOG TREATMENTS.  It's been a long year for Coastal Pet Rescue, and with 99 canine intakes this year,   it's only going to be longer.  So far, Coastal Pet Rescue has treated five canines for heartworms, and two more are still awaiting their turn, but help is urgently needed to fund the medical care.  Although heartworms are preventable thanks to monthly medications, many of the dogs Coastal Pet Rescue rescues have not been kept current -  If ever at all - on the prevention, and thus need the expensive treatments.  Treatments can run $600 to $1200 depending upon the severity of the infestation, and since Coastal Pet Rescue does not believe in passing on the excessive medical bills for adopters and instead charges only a flat $150 adoption fee, there's a lot left to cover.  Donations may be made online at coastalpetrescue.org/donate or by mail to Coastal Pet Rescue, PO Box
30462, Savannah, GA 31410.

THE CITY OF SAVANNAH ANNOUNCES A NEW SYSTEM FOR BULK COLLECTION.  CITIZENS MAY SCHEDULE THEIR BULK COLLECTION BY CALLING 311.  Residents will still have a scheduled week each month to receive bulk item collection with no additional charge, but collection will no longer be automatic.

Any items placed out off-schedule will also be removed for a fee. Sanitation calendar magnets were distributed to residents at the start of the year. The calendars can also be downloaded online at savannahga.gov/sanitation.  Bulk item collection is a continued service offered by City of Savannah Sanitation to retrieve and dispose of large items placed out for collection by residents during a one-week period each month. Bulk items include most large household goods, including discarded furniture and appliances. Items that will NOT be collected during bulk item pickup include yard waste, construction material, hazardous materials and liquid waste.
