TPC Scottsdale To Raise Funds For U.S. Troops And Their Families
Most all of us go about our daily lives rarely giving thought to the fact our troops put their lives on the line every day to keep our country free and safe. So we applaud and encourage you to support TPC Scottsdale for hosting Birdies for the Brave. This annual event is part of the PGA TOUR’s national military outreach program supporting the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.
TPC Scottsdale will host their Birdies for the Brave event on Monday, December 6, 2010. The day starts with registration and breakfast at 8am. A 10am shotgun kicks off the golf tournament, after which the course will host a luncheon, silent auction and Awards Ceremony.
Individuals can participate for a $250 entry fee, which includes all activities and tee gifts. Better yet, put a foursome together for only $800 and you’ll not only have a great time, you’ll help nine outstanding Birdies for the Brave Homefront groups directly service military men, women and their families.
TPC Scottsdale is not in this alone. All TPC facilities and partner properties are hosting Birdies for the Brave events across the country, so they can provide contributions to the nine organizations below:
