TPC Tampa Bay Raises $106,000 in Support of U.S. Troops
Lutz, FL – TPC Tampa Bay, part of the Heritage Golf Group Collection of golf properties, raised over $50,000 on Monday February 17th, 2014 to help support U.S. troops and their families. Proceeds will benefit PGA TOUR Charities, Inc.’s Birdies for the Brave® program, a national military outreach initiative dedicated to raising funds and awareness for military homefront charities that provide critical services to meet the specialized needs of military members, wounded veterans, and their families.
TPC Tampa Bay hosted their 9th annual Birdies for the Brave tournament with a full field of over 200 golfers playing two golf courses. Each foursome of golfers was joined by an active duty military member. Their participation brought real-world military heroism to life through the round of golf. Following tournament play, TPC Tampa Bay hosted a reception which included dinner for all participants and guests, a silent auction, raffles and an awards presentation.
“We are proud to host the Birdies for the Brave event in honor of our military heroes,” said Justin Wink, General Manager of TPC Tampa Bay. “We are truly grateful for the daily sacrifices that our military members and their families make and I hope that we can continue to make a positive impact in their lives.” Since 2008, the Heritage Golf Group Collection of Clubs has enthusiastically championed the Birdies for the Brave program, raising more than $1.8 million in support of the military homefront charities. TPC Tampa Bay is one of nine Heritage Golf Group properties to host Birdies for the Brave fundraisers this year. The Birdies for the Brave program provides much needed support to members of the United States Armed Forces and their families and is a primary element of Heritage Golf Group’s philanthropic endeavors.
Funds from these Birdies for the Brave events benefit numerous military homefront groups that are supported by PGA TOUR players, including:
