On October 15, “Serve Our Willing Warriors” hosted our Inaugural Golf Tournament at Dominion Valley Country Club in Haymarket, VA. All the proceeds of the fundraising event will go directly to the renovation of the “Bull Run Warrior Retreat” lodging house that is now underway.
Player participation was so overwhelming that online registration had to be closed a week prior to the event. There were also a number of players who came to register the day of the tournament. We just couldn’t turn anyone away, so the final head count was 136 players!
SOWW President Shirley Dominick's foursome included one of our honored
Some of our players wanted to remind everyone
"Who and What" they are golfing for!
As you can see by the pictures, everyone had a wonderful & patriotic time.
Even a young non-Golfer had fun at the event and displayed her patriotic pride!
Immediately following play, a unique "Helicopter Golf Ball Drop" raffle was held at the practice range area, offering a “closest ball-to-pin” prize of $2500.
Hundreds of numbered golf balls were dropped about
100 feet over a flagstick.
There was time for everyone to mix and mingle at the luncheon afterwards.
During the luncheon, Mr. Jim Love was announced as the grand prize winner. Upon receiving his award, he immediately returned the $2500 check to SOWW. His gracious “pay-it-forward” action will be used towards the Bull Run Warrior Retreat house renovation.
Thank you very much Jim . . .
You have set the bar high as a very generous example for our future tournaments!
Some of the many gracious and supportive sponsors for the tournament included;
Agile Business Concepts, Data Tactics Corporation, Fulton Bank, OGSystems, Fairway Mortgage, and Sentara Healthcare.
Other companies, including Keller Williams Realty, W. C. Ralston Architects, and A1 FloodTech, fielded multiple foursomes in support of the event.
As always, we are so(ww) grateful for your ongoing efforts on behalf of
Serve Our Willing Warriors.
Many, many thanks to EVERYONE who attended and has helped us to get even closer to our goal of establishing the Bull Run Warrior Retreat!
We hope you had as good a time as we did.
(GOLFERS, this is an event you will NOT want to miss next year!)
