Jack and Jim Sutton, owners of Sutton Brothers were raised in Forsyth County and have called Winston-Salem home for a very long time!
From an early age, their parents Big Jack and Betty instilled the importance of giving back to the community. Both Jack and Jim have been very active supporters of many organizations that help those in need.
When COVID-19 struck, they wanted to do something more to give back! The idea of a “support your favorite charity” campaign was chosen.
It is a fun, supporting event that promotes charitable causes in the area. Participants click to "vote" for their favorite "Oldie" or "Goldie" through Sutton Brothers website to show their support and at the end of a four week voting period, for every 25 "cumulative votes" received, the Senior Resources of Guilford gets $100 up to $1,000.
Vote for your favorite "Goldie" or "Oldie" to support Senior Resources of Guilford.
