Certified Female Friendly Blog Carnival: August Edition
Clinics and pets and golf! Our Certified Female Friendly dealers have been busy this month educating and giving back. Summer's always a great time for a car care clinic, and our retailers love to reach out to their communities. Add to that some great recognition, a charity golf tournament, and a super-cool pet safety event and it's a pretty good month in the Ask Patty Nation!
The Jim Ellis annual charity golf tournament now enters its 12th year and helps a wide variety of charities who in the past have included Aflac Cancer Center, Boys and Girls Club of America, Children's Hospital of Atlanta, and Georgia's Center For Children's Advocacy among many others.
