Since its inception in 1990, Cornetta Enterprises has maintained a habit of giving back to the community.
The company has donated thousands of dollars to the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and provided slippers for the charity during the winter of 2005.
Cornetta Enterprises was also a Gold Sponsor of the Spring Fling 1994 and 1995 for Goldrush Showbar's "Faith For Miracles" Charity Golf Classic.
The company is also a member of the Better Business Bureau and donated nearly 500 toys during the Holiday season of 2005 and 2006 and more than $1,000 in 2002 to Absolute Wellness, the Brandon Ross Abernathy Community Center.
In addition, John Cornetta was named "Samaritan of the Year" in 2000, 2002 and 2007 by The Samaritan Relief Fund. Click on the thumbnails below to view the bigger images.

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
For nearly three years, Cornetta Enterprises in conjunction with John Cornetta, has been regular donators to the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation. We have donated checks amounting to thousands of dollars as well as toys and slippers during the cold and throughout the Holiday Season.
Not once did we attempt to nor have we even contemplated using these donations as a way to sway public opinion toward us or toward our company. That is not why we have done this over the years, we have done this because of our deep sympathy we have for these children who are afflicted with such horrible disease at such an early age and the suffering that not only they must go through, but the pain that that parents must endure as well. As parents, we understand.
It is however, with regret that our donations are now not only being refused by the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation, but a check has even been returned in the amount of $1,200. We have been told that because of one company that Cornetta Enterprises manages, just one of over 40, that our gifts, our toys, our slippers, our money and not even our love is good enough for the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation.
The most frustrating part of this is situation is that we, Cornetta Enterprises, did not go looking for this scenario. For years we donated without searching for any press at all or any thank you from the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation. It is by denying our gifts to thousands of children in need that the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation has created the media frenzy on its own.
As individuals, I remain dedicated to giving back to our community in anyway we can. We hope that some worthy charity, that could put these gifts to use would step forward and allow us to touch just one heart.
