Organizers of Feed the Hungry reached out to Craig Martin, C.C.M., COO & General Manager of St. Andrews Country Club to reach out to his colleagues to provide side dishes to help their cause.  Martin commented, "It is so important for both people and organizations to pitch in to help those less fortunate, especially as our economy slowly improves. What has become an annual event is rewarding for all parties involved and I am once again moved by the St. Andrews Country Club Board of Governors and my fellow Club Managers Association members who continue to provide all of the items requested."

"Craig Martin and his colleagues Michael McCarthy, CEO & General Manager of Addison Reserve Country Club and Chuck Lehner, COO & General Manager of Boca Grove Golf & Tennis Club offered assistance without hesitation.
