Interested in an inspiring and fun way to help veterans in your community? Join our Tee It Up for the Troops Central IL chapter golf event at Mt. Hawley Country Club on August 15th! This charity golf tournament is meant to be fun, while at the same time always remembering the sacrifices our military heroes and their families make daily. Tee It Up for the Troops Central IL combines an exciting golf tournament with an inspiring opening ceremony and tribute to our nation and military and ends the day with a rousing reception and raffle to raise more funds for our American heroes. Sponsors, other golfers, and veterans enjoy a day on the golf course together and then an exciting reception supporting our veterans and their families.
Did you know that according to VA officials the overall rate of suicides among veterans has held steady at around 22 a day for roughly a decade, but researchers are seeing a troubling increase in the rate of younger veterans taking their lives? The change from battlefront to homefront can be particularly challenging for combat veterans, who often are working through war-related PTSD, depression, anxiety and more. Our support for these American Heroes should never end once they come home from war.
Corporate and individual sponsorships and donations are needed to help more combat warriors overcome physical, mental, and emotional wounds incurred in the line of duty. Proceeds from this charity golf tournament go to many local veteran service organizations and also supports the Tee It Up for the Troops outreach program, REUNION, where combat veterans are reunited with their comrades from the battlefield.
It’s time to help our veterans get back on course! You can help our veterans by joining us at our Central IL Tee It Up for the Troops golf event at Mt. Hawley Country Club and give thanks to all those who have served us with such honor! Register, sponsor or donate to this charity golf tournament using the information and links provided above.
