Here’s a chance to have a “swinging good time” and also contribute to Birdies for the Brave Tampa Bay, which is part of a nationwide program that gives citizen support to wounded military members and their families.
There is a chance to mingle with members of the PGA and members of the military at the Kick-Off Party Saturday (Nov. 19) from 4 to 10 p.m. The party is open to the public at TPC – Tampa Bay, 5300 West Lutz Lake Fern Road, Lutz, Florida. It is being held overlooking the 18th fairway, includes dinner, open bar, live music, dancing and a silent auction. Tickets for the party are $40 at the door.
Reservations are required for the Golf Extravaganza scheduled Sunday (Nov. 20) also held at TPC – Tampa Bay. It will be followed by an awards ceremony.
Six non-profit organizations from the “homefront” will share the proceeds from the Tampa Bay Birdies for the Brave event:
- Homes for our Troops
- Operation Homefront
- Navy SEAL Foundation
- Special Operations Warrior Foundation
- United Through Reading
- Wounded Warrior Project
Birdies for the Brave is the PGA TOUR’s primary way to support men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. The money raised goes to military homefront groups that directly serve military men and women lost or seriously injured.
