AUSA Wounded Warrior Golf Classic Returns with BearCom, Motorola Solutions as Lead Sponsors
Organizers Looking to Exceed Last Year’s Record-Setting Donations to Local Charities Heroes on the Water and Operation Once in a Lifetime
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
BearCom, a nationwide provider of wireless communications equipment and solutions, today announced several enhancements to the AUSA Wounded Warrior Golf Classic to be held October 14 with BearCom and Motorola Solutions as lead sponsors. The tournament benefits two charities assisting wounded warriors and their families in North Texas.
The 2013 AUSA Wounded Warrior Golf Classic will be held at Firewheel Golf Park, one of the Dallas area’s premier public golf complexes. The event will again feature contests for the longest drive and the closest to the pin, as well as a hole-in-one challenge for the more than 200 participants.
Included in the foursomes at this year’s tournament will be more than a dozen former servicemen and women who have learned to play golf through the Salute Military Golf Association, which works to provide rehabilitative golf experiences to post-9/11 wounded war veterans.
The event will again conclude with a dinner and a raffle for a range of items, including golf equipment, event tickets, sports memorabilia, and a video game system. Notable raffle items this year are to include:
- A golf weekend for two at North Carolina’s historic Pinehurst Resort: Three times the site of the U.S. Open Championship and boasting eight world-class courses, Pinehurst has been recognized as the best golf resort in America. This trip is valued at $2,000.
- A model 1903 Springfield rifle, the standard U.S. military weapon for World War I and the start of World War II: Valued at $1,000 and still operational, this particular rifle was the U.S. Army’s first attempt at a standardized sniper weapon.
Just as she did last year, noted singer/songwriter Helene Cronin will perform “Lucky Me,” a touching song about the debt we all owe our servicemen and women that she wrote after a meeting a soldier in the Nashville airport.
“We are excited to be a part of a great event that keeps getting better,” said BearCom President & CEO Jerry Denham. “Last year, we helped raise $56,380 for the assistance of servicemen and women injured in the protection of our country. This year, we hope to do even better. We also want to remind players that it’s not too late to sign up, have some fun, and support a great cause.”
