Putting for Patriots

PUTTING FOR PATRIOTS

“Helping our wounded warriors, their families and the survivors of the fallen”

WHAT IS PUTTING FOR PATRIOTS?
Putting for Patriots is an established annual fund raising event, which supports three pre-screened charities that as a group efficiently serve our wounded, their families and the survivors of fallen military members. The event takes place each May, culminating on Memorial Day weekend. Each year, our 36 participating courses donate a % of their total sales on the Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Weekend and accept customer donations, which are turned over to the charities. Our participating courses: golf courses and miniature golf courses.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

1.  Visit a participating course during the last two weeks of May and make a donation.

2.  Contact a participating adventure golf course in your area and sponsor a golf hole.  Personal or Corporate Sponsors accepted:

  • Sponsors will have the opportunity to provide promotional materials (pens, magnets, coupons, etc.) that will be handed out to golf course customers during Memorial Day Weekend-- a great way to reach your audience at the beginning of the summer season.

EVENT HISTORY/RESULTS: SINCE 2007, WE HAVE RAISED $128,875 FOR OUR SELECTED CHARITIES!

WHY SHOULD YOUR GOLF COURSE GET INVOLVED?
  • Since the beginning of the “War on Terror”, we have lost over 6,000 Service Members; almost 44,000 have been wounded in Iraq, Afghanistan and the surrounding theatres of operation.  The number of amputees has doubled since 2009.
  • While a typical wounded Soldier or Marine’s medical care is taken care of by the government, often there are gigantic hidden costs or gaps in care not covered by the military or any government program.  These costs can zap the financial life out of young, struggling military families.
  • By joining our effort, you will help provide much-needed revenue for a select group of excellent charities, which effectively help fill these gaps in care.
