Heritage Golf Group Helps Birdies for the Brave® Raise more than $15 Million in Support of Wounded Heroes & Military Families
Charlotte, NC. – Heritage Golf Group, a boutique owner and operator of premier private, resort and daily fee golf properties across the U.S., has collaborated with the PGA TOUR’s TPC Network of clubs and Birdies for the Brave military outreach initiative to help raise in excess of $15 million for 11 non-profit military homefront groups that directly serve military men and women and their families – including $3 million raised by Heritage Golf Group clubs since 2008. In 2015 alone, Heritage Golf Group has raised more than $246,000 for Birdies for the Brave through a variety of charitable activities including golf tournaments, silent auctions, and accompanying fundraising activities conducted at the company’s collection of premier clubs nationwide including:
Proceeds from the events benefit military homefront groups that are supported by PGA TOUR players, including Special Operations Warrior Foundation; Naval SEAL Foundation; Operation Homefront; Military Warriors Support Foundation; Green Beret Foundation; United Through Reading; K9s For Warriors; Feherty’s Troops First Foundation; Operation Shower; Disabled Sports USA; and Homes for Our Troops.
As part of our strategic alliance with the TPC Network, Heritage Golf Group is very proud to have the opportunity to support the members of our U.S. Armed Forces and their families through Birdies for the Brave. Together, we can help make a difference in the lives of those who perform selfless acts of bravery on a daily basis as well as the courageous family members who do so much at home that enables their loved ones to proudly serve our country.
“We truly appreciate the dedication and passion of Heritage Golf Group, its employees, and club members, who have helped Birdies for the Brave raise millions of dollars for military homefront charities as well as express our sincere gratitude to military members, veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice,” said PGA TOUR Director of PR & Community Outreach, Anne Davis.
In 2016, Heritage Golf Group will add a charity golf tournament at its recently-acquired property, The Dominion Club (www.tdcva.com) in Glen Allen, VA. To learn more about Birdies for the Brave and view the 2016 fundraising event schedule, please visit www.birdiesforthebrave.org.
