Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club
HORUS Construction Services, Inc., a 100% African American-owned commercial general contracting company, is hosting its second golf tournament to support the George Edgecomb Society.
HORUS President Jonathan Graham’s father started the business as a small contracting firm and then later sold it to Graham once it became clear that his son was determined to take their family’s company to the next level. Graham recently sat down with us to talk about the tournament and why the missions of Moffitt and the George Edgecomb Society are important to support:
"I think that attention is not often given to Black ailments. So, I was very happy when Dr. [Lee] Green (vice president, diversity, public relations & strategic communications) told me about the George Edgecomb Society and how it could help benefit the Black community. And I also wasn’t aware of how many Black people are diagnosed with cancer. I had no idea.
Moffitt saves lives. Not only what they do for cancer, but what they do for the community. And the reason I say that is because of their intensity on diversity and inclusion. I’m just going to be straight: African Americans working at Moffitt and on Moffitt is lifesaving.
I’m a partner with Barr & Barr with Fred Hames in leadership there. We have done a lot together, but Moffitt is our favorite client because it allows and encourages us to focus on inclusion so that we can spend extra time making sure African American businesses are included in a monumental project. That doesn’t happen every day. And I’m excited because I can help my community with building their capacity and opening their eyes up to new things. And so, for that reason, Moffitt is a lifesaver for these businesses."
