Our 2019 Tournament was spectacular with two beautiful days of golf played on November 10th and 11th, 288 golfers, and more than 100 sponsors which added-up to a record amount of money raised to assist Veterans with disabilities and active duty personnel.
We successfully raised $130,107.05, surpassing MMIA’s goal of $110,000 and our 2018 final amount raised of $113,994 (after all expenses paid).
In 11 years, our tournament at Bentwinds Golf & Country Club, in Fuquay-Varina, has raised an amazing $652,101. Our success is because of our loyal sponsors who return each year and our golfers who have a passion to support our veterans and military personnel.
This year House-Autry of Four Oaks, returned as our Title Sponsor for the 8th consecutive year and donated $20,000. House Autry has graciously contributed $110,000 since becoming our tournament’s Title Sponsor.
U.S. Flag, Purple Heart and Memorial Sign Sponsors contributed more than $15,000 to the fundraising effort and the generosity of our golfers was evident again this year as you helped raise more than $17,000 in our Silent Auction.
Garilbaldi Trattoria of Fuquay-Varina, Danny’s BBQ of Cary, Jersey Mike’s (all Triangle locations), Holten Meats, The Butcher's Market, and House-Autry provided food for all golfers over the 2-day event.
Thank You!… To all of our sponsors and golfers for providing such overwhelming support to our mission and to those who have served and those who are presently serving in all branches of the U.S. military.
We are already preparing for the 12th Annual Tee-Off for the Troops Golf Classic in 2020, so SAVE THE DATE - Sunday, November 8 and Wednesday November 11, 2020.
Let us never forget the sacrifice of our Veterans and active duty members and that freedom is never free.
