Forsyth County restaurant reaches philanthropy milestone

FORSYTH COUNTY — Norman’s Landing officials, from left, Bill Norman, Teresa Thomas and Phillip Samples, recently celebrated the restaurant having raised nearly $80,000 for HOPE and state pre-kindergarten programs through its participation in the Georgia Lottery in 2014.

In addition, the eatery has raised more than $2 million for local charities in the 20 years it has operated on Peachtree Parkway.

Of that, Norman said, about $278,000 of that was raised through ping pong tournaments.

About $425,000 of the funds raised went to the local United Way and $115,661 to Camp Sunshine, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta or the local chamber of commerce.

Another $420,000 went toward support of the HOPE Scholarship, and more than $500,000 was raised from 170 auctioned trips to Costa Rica. 

Also, $250,000 was given in gift certificates for various charities.
