Saucier, Miss. (December 18, 2019) – Last month’s Patriot Golf Day at Grand Bear Golf Club in Saucier, Miss. raised more than $10,000 for the Folds of Honor Foundation and its mission to provide post-secondary educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled in the line of duty. Played on Tuesday, November 19, Grand Bear’s Patriot Golf Day included golfers from across Mississippi playing in a fun, four person scramble. In addition, 20 corporate sponsors from the greater Biloxi and Gulfport areas helped support the Patriot Golf Day tournament.
The $10,000 donation equals two Folds of Honor educational scholarships that will be awarded to a spouse and/or child of a wounded or fallen service member. In 2019, the Folds of Honor Foundation awarded 100 scholarships.
“Our final numbers are in from the golf tournament, silent auction and donations and we’re thrilled to have raised $10,000 for Folds of Honor,” said Brad Kale, PGA, general manager, Grand Bear Golf Club. “We genuinely appreciate the support of local golfers and businesses in making this tournament a success. We look forward to growing it bigger and better in years to come.”
In total, more than 70 golfers participated in Grand Bear Golf Club’s Patriot Golf Day tournament. For more information on Grand Bear Golf Club, visit https://grandbeargolf.com or call (228) 265-9363.
