San Diego, CA - Heritage Golf Group announced today that their golf
properties nationwide have raised more than $306,000 in 2014 for the
PGA TOUR Charities, Inc.'s Birdies for the Brave program in support
of members of the United States Armed Forces and their families.
Proceeds will benefit Birdies for the Brave military homefront
charities that provide critical services to meet the specialized
needs of military members, wounded veterans, and their families.
This year, funds were raised by the following four premier Heritage Golf Group properties that hosted charity golf tournaments, silent auctions, and accompanying fundraising activities throughout the year:
• TPC Tampa Bay
• TPC Prestancia
• Meadowbrook Farms Golf Club
• Palmetto Hall Plantation Club
The Birdies for the Brave program is one of the primary beneficiaries of Heritage Golf Group's philanthropic endeavors. Since 2008, the Heritage Golf Group Collection of properties has been dedicated to raising awareness for the Birdies for the Brave program and has generated more than $2.4 million in support of the military homefront charities. The Company is proud to honor their long-standing commitment by continuing its dedication to the cause in 2015.
"We are proud to once again join in the Birdies for the Brave fundraising initiative. These programs provide much needed support for the courageous men and women of our U.S. Armed Forces -- and their families -- who sacrifice so much in service to our country," said Bob Husband, Managing Partner of Heritage Golf Group. "We are truly touched by the tremendous amount of support we have received from our members, local communities and event sponsors. Their support has enabled us to generate even more awareness for this important cause."
