Come hit the golf ball to help LaAmistad improve Buckhead’s literacy and the standard of living for Latinos in the area! LaAmistad, Inc. is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its 14th Annual LaAmistad Golf Tournament. Whether your clubs are always on the back of a cart somewhere, or if they have to be dusted off after being pulled out of the attic, we would be grateful if you would help us “tee off” to help increase Latino literacy and community involvement throughout the Atlanta area.
The LaAmistad Golf Tournament has been held each year since its start with the proceeds going to raising awareness and funds for LaAmistad, Inc., an award winning 501(c)3 nonprofit. LaAmistad, Inc. continuously aims to maintain its first-class reputation for making huge strides in uplifting the Latino and Buckhead community through mentoring students, educating parents, and transforming families by providing the resources that each family so desperately needs to succeed.
None of LaAmistad, Inc.’s accomplishments or transformations could have been possible without the generous donations of time and financial assistance that our supporters have continued to give us year after year. LaAmistad, Inc. would like invite you to proudly support us through your participation in this tournament.

In 2000, the inaugural LaAmistad Golf Tournament was held by the great Bill Maness, founder of LaAmistad, Inc., in efforts to raise funds to support his newly born program. The 1st Annual LaAmistad Golf Tournament astoundingly raised 90% of the funds needed to support his new program, LaAmistad.
Maness wrote “Our goals are to help the students achieve an academic level that will enable them to excel in school. We will take new kindergarten kids each year and continue to work with the children as they move into middle and high school, and hopefully college. I can tell you these children are bright and energetic with a desire to learn that I have not seen before.”
Even after Maness’ sudden and unfortunate death in 2004, the golf tournament has continued on each year, becoming a signature event at LaAmistad, Inc.. Supporters of LaAmistad, Inc. look forward to teeing off each year to help it continue its success and transformation within the Buckhead community!
Because of the annual golf tournament and other sources of funding, LaAmistad continues to thrive today with close to 70 students attending every Monday through Thursday for tutoring and sports programming at Peachtree Presbyterian Church. Our classes have flourished at both our Holy Innocents’ and Peachtree Presbyterian locations where there are nearly 150 students enrolled. LaAmistad, Inc. recently launched its new ESL program, English for Successful Living. The success with expansion continues this fall 2013 as it unveils two new LaAmistad replication sites in Atlanta. This expansion will bring LaAmistad’s total to four after school programs and three English for Successful Living.
100% of LaAmistad students meet the CRCT reading standard and maintain an A/B average,. LaAmistad‘s achievements have been highly recognized by the Atlanta Public School System and is a two time winner of their A+ Achievement Award. Currently, LaAmistad has students attending the Westminster Schools and Pace Academy on full scholarships. LaAmistad is proud to have graduates attending Emory University and University of Charleston on FULL scholarships! These accomplishments truly speak to the amazing work that is being accomplished within this extraordinary organization, and each day each student, volunteer, and staff member make it their priority to keep pushing LaAmistad to the next level!
