Tee It Up for the Troops™ and Concert Golf Partners Join Forces to Support Veterans
Fundraising Events will benefit Veterans and their Families in 15 Communities in 2017
Tee It Up for the Troops™ and Concert Golf Partners are proud to announce that they will be joining forces to support America’s veterans and military families. Since 2005, Tee It Up for the Troops has been engaging and inspiring communities and golf clubs across the United States to do great things on behalf of our military men and women in support of their mission: To honor, remember, respect and support all those who serve(d) in the Armed Forces of our great nation.
To further that mission, Concert Golf Partners has “stepped up to the tee” to launch fundraising golf events at each of its 15 premier golf properties nationwide.
