SAVANNH, GA- January 19, 2017-  Greenbriar Children’s Center recently received a $2,000 donation from the Savannah Senior Strikers’ 3rd Annual Devereaux Dixon, Sr. and John C. Jackson Memorial Golf Tournament which was held Sept. 23-25 2016 at the Crosswinds Golf Club in Savannah.


The Savannah Senior Strikers organization was formed in 2006 as a charitable organization made up of a group of local men who loved to play golf and wanted to give back to the community. They selected Greenbriar Children’s Center as a focus for their fundraising initiatives and began the annual golf tournament in 2014 to honor Senior Strikers who had passed away.  The first year the tournament raised $500 for Greenbriar and donations have continued to increase as The Senior Strikers also support the organization throughout each year with additional projects that include providing Christmas gifts for the Greenbriar children.


“Greenbriar could not serve the community to the extent that we do without the support of organizations and groups like the Senior Strikers,” said Greenbriar Executive Director Gena Taylor. “We are thankful for this annual partnership and very much appreciate their consistent giving over the years.”


Greenbriar is a nonprofit organization that provides services that include an emergency shelter, runaway/homeless support, residential care, independent living, and family preservation, as well as early childhood education and care which leads to the healthy development of children and young adults and to the strengthening of families.

Senior Strikers member Jesse Lee Jones commented “We picked Greenbriar as we were very impressed with the non-profit organization’s commitment and levels of support for children in our community.”


The next Senior Strikers Golf Tournament will be held Sept. 22-24, 2017. To learn more about this event of the Senior Strikers, please visit
