JHE PRODUCTION GROUP BANDS TOGETHER
TO HELP A FAMILY MEMBER IN NEED

LOCAL EVENT PRODUCTION COMPANY RAISES $31,875 FOR CANCER PATIENT

HARRISBURG, N.C. (Oct. 18, 2013) – For JHE Production Group Inc. (JHE), an award-winning event experience company, the essence of its success is giving back to both its internal and external family. On Oct. 15, 2013, the JHE family came together for the third annual Golfing 4 Good tournament at Cabarrus Country Club and raised $31,875 for Isabelle Ledford, mother-in-law of JHE employee Charlie Roberts.

Ledford was diagnosed with stage 4 breast and bone cancer earlier this year. An avid outdoorswoman and chicken farmer by trade, Ledford has been forced to completely adjust her life and reduce her time outdoors while undergoing chemotherapy. With these limitations on her livelihood, expensive medical bills have piled up quickly. The funds raised will help ease the financial burden on her and her family during her time of recovery.

“Golfing 4 Good is a day for the JHE family and its partners to come together to support one of its own,” said Jay Howard, JHE’s president and founder. “Working closely together in high-pressure environments, the JHE team is a family that stands together in both the good times and the bad. We are proud to be able to help people like Isabelle in their time of need.”

The event would not have been possible without JHE’s partners and supporters who all came out to support the cause Tuesday. The tournament had 20 sponsors and 22 teams participating. The tournament’s winner, a team from Sunbelt Rentals, walked away with four complimentary rounds of golf at Cabarrus Country Club and Nike logo polos. Chad Willis from Sprint hit the day’s longest drive; Tim Crist, a member of team Jani-King, won the putting contest and J.J. Roper from MRN won the closest to the pin contest.

Golfing 4 Good was established in 2011 to benefit members of the JHE family and local community who are dealing with adversity in their life. JHE completely funds the successful 3-year-old tournament so that 100 percent of its proceeds can be donated to the selected beneficiary.

Previous recipients include the father of JHE employee Kristin Thompson, John, in 2012 and the girlfriend of a JHE employee in 2011. Both of these efforts also surpassed more than $30,000 for the individual beneficiary. The 2012 money was used to make John’s home wheelchair-accessible after he survived a critical all-terrain vehicle accident leaving him with permanent brain damage, severely impaired motor skills and cognitive function. In 2011, a JHE employee’s girlfriend was diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and didn’t have health insurance to help pay her bills.
