This Year, Sonya Bailor is Coming Not Only as a Player, But as a Sponsor of the Event, Helping Raise Money for the NFL Alumni Caring for Kids Charities and the American Cancer Society.
Team Bailor Group
Friday, June 18, 2021, was the Annual NFL Alumni Charity Golf Classic, at the beautiful Gaylord Springs Golf Club in Nashville, TN. Last year, Sonya Bailor, President & CEO of Bailor Group LLC, was invited to play on the team of her friend & past client, Jason Fandrich, Owner & CEO of Cuestion Tequila. This year, Sonya is coming not only as a player but as a sponsor of the event, helping raise money for the NFL Alumni Caring for Kids Charities and the American Cancer Society. These organizations hold a dear place in her heart after her son was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer in 2016.
“It’s exciting to be able to sponsor this event, just over a year after launching my own consulting practice,” said Sonya Bailor, President & CEO of Bailor Group LLC, “This is a big deal to be able to do in such a short time after launching a company! I am definitely proud of that.”
NFL Alumni TN Chapter President, Al Smith, and Sonya Bailor were reunited at last years’ 2020 NFL Alumni Charity Golf Classic, after having worked together previously through the launch of School of the Legends (SOTL or SOTLNFL), the Official Social Network and Training Partner of the NFL Players Association. The School of the Legends private online community was live from 2011 – 2013. It turned out, in fact, that Sonya ran into many familiar NFL Alumni faces at last year’s golf tournament. So, when Al Smith called Sonya later in the year, as he was planning the 2021 event to asked if she would be interested in being a sponsor this year, it was a no-brainer for her.
“It was an opportunity I did not want to pass up,” said Sonya Bailor. “These are a great group of people in the NFL Alumni and a lot of which I already know from before. So not only is it a great chance to get to see them all again, I now have the opportunity to bring my company as a part of helping them raise money. It would be an honor to work with them again, to get to help them grow the businesses they are doing now.”

When asked why she launched her consulting practice during a pandemic, Sonya Bailor answered, “Both in corporate and as a fractional executive I learned I could make historical growth on small and large brands. I launched this consultancy to make a greater impact, helping more companies at a time. Growth Strategy is how we think, it’s what we do. And it’s what we do very well. And right now, it seemed needed than ever. So, I launched my company and am proud of the growth we’ve seen so far. It is exciting to get to help even more people and businesses grow!”
