“Imperial is very proud of its partnership with Tee it Up for the Troops,” said David Shaffer, Senior Vice President of Sales at Imperial. “Doing our part to honor, remember, and support all those who serve(d) in the Armed Forces is something that is very important to us.”
Tee It Up for the Troops is a national non-profit organization dedicated to supporting programs that deliver critical services to help veterans from all eras heal and transition from the battlefront to the home front. Tee It Up for the Troops provides support for six critical areas of need for veterans and their families: Golf and Sports Rehabilitation, Suicide Prevention, PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injuries, Employment, Housing/Homelessness, and Family/Caregiver Support.
Tee It Up for the Troops has hosted over 600 golf events in more than 40 states over the last 17 years, allowing the non-profit organization to donate $12.8 million to military service organizations that provide critically needed services to combat veterans and their families. Our dedicated national sponsors help us achieve this goal.
In addition to sponsoring event headwear, Imperial commits to quarterly donation disbursements to Tee It Up for the Troops with a portion of the proceeds from a branded collection of headwear benefiting the non-profit organization.
“Tee It Up for the Troops is honored to partner with Imperial, a brand with inspiration for trending and customized golf hats,” says Tim Wegscheid, President and Executive Director of Tee It Up for the Troops. “Imperial consistently ‘steps up to the tee’ and stands by our side as we collaborate in support of America’s veterans and military families. Thanks to Imperial for teaming up with us as a national sponsor to provide hats and visors to our many golf event sponsors and supporters across the country!”
