Patriot Golf Day / Folds of Honor 2015

logo-medIt is always a good time to honor those who keep our freedoms and protect us.  It is also a good thing to combine efforts such as those of Folds of Honor with activities many Americans love…such as golf.  From the FoldsofHonor.org website:

On Labor Day weekend, golfers across the country are asked to add an extra dollar to their greens fees to fund Folds of Honor scholarships. The Patriot Golf Day campaign is jointly supported by The PGA of America and the United States Golf Association. In the last eight years, golfers nationwide have been instrumental in raising donations through Patriot Golf Day events, resulting in over 7,500 scholarships in all 50 states and 41 PGA sections.

Patriot Golf Day 2015 will again be held during the Labor Day weekend, September 4 – September 7.  If you are interested in joining our mission to empower the lives of deserving military families with educational opportunities, then please become a participating facility in 2015. PGA Professionals who host an event and submit funds to the Folds of Honor Foundation will receive 2 MSR credits.”

Look for your nearest participating golf course during Labor Day weekend and play!  This is an easy way to do what you love to do and feel even better for it – giving a little so that many have a better chance at life.  If your course isn’t yet planning to participate, speak with your pro and get started!

This is why:

“Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, nearly nine out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Folds of Honor seeks to meet this need by providing annual educational scholarships to the military families of those who have been killed or disabled while in active duty. These help support private education tuition, tutoring and educational summer camps for children K-12, as well as higher education tuition assistance for spouses and children. Since its founding in 2007, the organization is proud to have awarded over 7,500 scholarships, including over 2,000 in 2014 alone.”
