2013 Holes for Heroes™ Military Tribute Event

 

Our 2013 Holes for Heroes Military Tribute Event will be held on Friday, September 20th at Lomas Santa Fe, CC in Solana Beach beginning at 9:30 AM.

Bidding is now open in the Holes for Heroes online auction! Bidding ends Thursday, September 19th on an amazing array of items. To access the auction today, click here!

Thanks to you, our player participants, our sponsors, auction item buyers and major Sponsors: i-Tech, Union Bank, Jack-in-the-Box Foundation, Sunroad Auto Group, Carleton Management, CUBIC, Gray Dog Partners, The Loftus Family, Kansas City BBQ, Lang and Associates, CPAs, ViaSat, WAXIE, Sycuan Casino, North County Hot Spring Spas, The Stone Families, and The Gilbert Martin Foundation, we had one of the most successful events ever!

Despite the economic enemy, Holes for Heroes 2012 netted more than $100,000.00!!!! Through your generous support Holes for Heroes has raised more than $486,000 of which 100% is distributed to our beneficiary charities because we are all 100% volunteers!

More importantly, the military wounded and combat Vet players had a wonderful time! They are so appreciative of our strong support for them, all our troops and their families! As a civilian player said, "It's not about the golf but sharing quality time with these Heroes!" and the opportunity to say, "Thank you!" up close and personal!

The courage these men have, especially LCPL Schumachar (a double leg amputee) who used a special "Stand-up and Play" golf cart is remarkable. Seeing him and other wounded Heroes participate brings home (front and center) the sacrifice these young men make for our country and for our security! Truly remarkable and very humbling! We even had a USMC widow play with us!! More than 125 wounded / combat Vets have now participated in our events.

This year was even more special as we also honored a WW II – Ex-American POW (3 years in Japanese prisons) and a Vietnam – Ex-American POW (18 months in 'Hanoi Hilton'). These are VERY SPECIAL Heroes!

Thank you for helping us help our Hurting Heroes, Front line troops, Children and Families of Deployed troops, KIAs and Recovering Vets via Holes for Heroes! SIGN UP TODAY!
