The 9th Annual Tee It Up For The Troops fundraising golf event brings together more than 1,000 veterans, local celebrities, supporters and volunteers to honor and support our men and women in the military, our veterans and their families.
More than 100 veterans will play golf for free during the morning session, including injured servicemen from across the country who continue to use the game of golf for therapy and rehabilitation to help recover from their wounds suffered in service to our country, including Chad Pfeifer of Goodyear, Arizona, who lost his left leg in an IED explosion and is working on becoming the first amputee to win on the PGA or Web.com Tour.
The event includes a ceremony and donation of a specialized six-person golf cart to the Fisher House Foundation to be used as transportation for wounded veterans and their families at the Fisher House now under construction near Nashville, Tennessee.
