Tee It Up for the Troops presents check to Mike Hutson of Hearts & Hammers at special luncheon.
Tee it up for the Troops, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, established in 2005 by the family and friends of a soldier who enlisted in the United States Army after September 11, 2001. When the son was asked by his father what he needed, the son responded by asking his father to do something for the soldiers and their families back home. Tee it up for the Troops mission is to support veterans to heal, transition, grow, and thrive. They have donated over $5 million to a multitude of veteran support organizations, like Hearts & Hammers, that provide a broad array of critically needed services to combat altered warriors, veterans and their families. “The Longest Day” was a famous book and movie (starring John Wayne) honoring those who fought for our freedom on D-Day (June 6, 1944). This year Bunker Hills Golf Club hosted the annual Longest Day of Golf for the Troops. Golfers “Tee’d It Up” at the crack of dawn, and played until sundown to raise money for Tee it Up for the Troops and their partner charitable organizations serving the needs of fallen and disabled veterans and their families.
