WHEREAS: The Lanier Partners of North Georgia, Inc. annually organize and produce large fundraising events, such as the Pirates of Lanier Boat Poker Run, to specifically help children in need in local communities throughout Georgia. The Lake Lanier community and outside organizations are generously supporting this event through sponsorships, volunteer time, monetary donations, and event entries; and
WHEREAS: The number of children who are in need of financial support from charitable organizations continues to grow in Georgia and in the United States; and
WHEREAS: The mission of Lanier Partners of North Georgia, Inc., is to create, develop, and support charitable programs that directly and positively impact the lives and well-being of children in need throughout Atlanta and surrounding communities; and
WHEREAS: Last year, Lanier Partners of North Georgia was able to raise over $180,000 to support the children in need in our area with Camp Sunshine — a camp for children with cancer – and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta being the largest beneficiaries. This year, the goal is to more than double the funds raised through the Pirates of Lanier Boat Poker Run event. It will be held from July 18th to July 20th, 2013 and on the last day participants will dress up as pirates, decorate their boats, and conclude the festivities with a night of great music and food. The event promises to be one of the largest and greatest events ever held on Lake Lanier; now
THEREFORE: I, NATHAN DEAL, Governor of the State of Georgia, do hereby commend the participants of
PIRATES DAY ON LAKE LANIER
and further recognize July 20, 2013, as Pirates Day.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the Executive Department to be affixed this 24th day of January, 2013.

Well, we are getting ready for another great year supporting the children in need through our "Pirates of Lanier" poker run. It will be held this year on July 18-20 on Lake Lanier. This year the captain's party and the after event party will be graciously hosted by Lake Lanier Islands at the Grand Hall and at Sunset Cove.
We wanted to take a moment and thank all of the wonderful sponsors who have again year after year generously supported our event. We will be noting on our web site those sponsors who we are calling "Multiple Year" sponsors.
Please take a moment if you can, visit our 2013 Sponsor page and let the sponsors know how much they are appreciated.
Hope to see you all there at our event this year.
The Board at Lanier Partners of North Georgia, Inc.
