Tee It Up for the Troops Golf Tournament: Honor, Remember, Respect
The week also marked our nation’s 18th anniversary of 9/11. Americans from all corners of these United States remembered the deadliest attack on US soil since Pearl Harbor.
On the day of the fundraising event, we remembered all those who served and those who are currently serving to protect our great nation. We are thankful for the many different Tee It Up for the Troops events happening across the country to support these men and women.
Tee It Up for the Troops was founded in 2005 when the family of a soldier serving in Iraq asked the soldier what he needed. His response to his family was, “Forget about me, do something for the soldiers and their families back home." Tee It Up for the Troops was then established to honor that selfless request. Since those humble beginnings, Tee It Up for the Troops has hosted fundraising events across the US.
“Instant Imprints was selected to provide support to Tee It Up for the Troops four years ago,” said Ralph Askar, President and Chief Executive Officer of Instant Imprints. “We have since then supported the local chapter of this great patriotic national organization via finding sponsors, donating time, providing volunteer services and donation of goods and auction items in support of their fund-raising activities.
“Our troops devote their lives to serve our county and fight for our freedom; the least we can do is to support them in time of need,” added Askar. “Tee It Up for the Troops organization is managed by volunteers and the majority of the funds raised (96%) go directly to support our wounded veterans.”
Anthony Silva, Co-Owner of Blulight Films and the official media sponsor of the September 9th event in Vista, California said, “Partnering with such a wonderful organization like Tee It Up for the Troops allows us to capture content that can have a real impact. We believe in supporting military veterans in any way can and by being the official media sponsor of the event, we were able to create some amazing video production content that we can't wait to share.”
Tee It Up for the Troops believes in engaging and inspiring communities across the United States to do great things on behalf of the military men and women who have served and sacrificed so much for our freedoms. Going forward from this 2019 event, the Instant Imprints organization plans to actively engage and promote their network of franchisees and their customers around the country to do all they can in support of this great cause. If you should have any questions about this or future events, please contact the organizations shown below.
