Patriot Golf Weekend - Benefits The Folds Of Honor Foundation



What better time of the year than Labor Day Weekend to support our military families in need.  Be sure to join us for three days of programs that will allow you to donate to those families who have been willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.  

The Folds Of Honor Foundation was started my Major Dan Rooney in 2007.  Major Rooney, a former F-16 pilot, golf course owner, PGA Professional and USGA Member, served three combat tours in Iraq.  After returning home, Major Rooney witnessed a profound need that drove him to create the Folds of Honor Foundation.  The Folds of Honor Foundation gives support, scholarships and other assistance to the spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled in the service of our country.

Over 700,000 soldiers have been killed or disabled in the military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Over one million dependents have been adversely affected by multiple deployments.  More than 87% of the dependents affected by the recent wars do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance.  This is your chance to help! 

Here is what you can plan to participate in at Deerfield all weekend long...
