Southern Company And PGA TOUR Present 2012 Payne Stewart Award To Steve Stricker

A dedicated husband and a father of two, Stricker spends much of his time off the course helping others through his involvement with charities assisting children and adults with disabilities.

In presenting the Payne Stewart Award, Southern Company contributes each year to three charities, including Payne and his wife Tracy Stewart's primary charity – The Stewart Family Foundation – The First Tee of the Ozarks located in Stewart's native Missouri and a charity designated by the recipient. 

"Southern Company recognizes the importance of supporting our local communities through charitable giving," said Fanning.  "In 2011 alone, our company donated $28 million to charitable causes and our employees contributed more than 250,000 hours of service to our local communities. Our support of the Payne Stewart Award is part of our ongoing commitment to ensure our communities are better off because we serve them."
