I had the pleasure of working with PGA TOUR Charities and the Birdies for the Brave Homefront Group Foundations for the golf event at the Doral Golf Resort on thier TPC Blue Monster golf course. The TOUR and respective Foundation staffs were professional from the get go and helped produce a wonderful golf outing to support the important work the Foundations are doing. Keep it up guys! Well done and thank you!

Birdies For The Brave is an outstanding charity that serves many military charities. I have had the privilege of working with Steven Kupcha, and Marc Raiken who work tirelessly to provide funds and awareness to many outstanding military organizations. This is a charity that truly gives back to our Military and their families.

Birdies for the Brave is an organization that has a great impact on military families at home as well as those serving in the military overseas. The PGA tour employees who administer Birdies for the Brave should be commended for all that they do to ensure the success of this organization. We, as Americans, need to show our support of the military and let's not forget the families - Birdies for the Brave does just that.

Birdies for the Brave is a wonderful organization who does great things for the much deserving troops. Through their relationship with the PGA TOUR, they are continually finding new ways to make all military personal feel appreciated. From free tournament admission and hospitality access to special ceremonies and events, Birdies for the Brave is a top notch organization!

Besides raising funds for a wonderful cause, the Wounded Warrior Project, Birdies for the Brave makes an amazing impact on the local military communities at professional golf events. The Patriots' Outpost hospitality areas are fantastic places to take in an event, especially for the whole family to enjoy. I've seen first-hand at multiple events where Birdies for the Brave touched hundreds if not thousands in the community. Military personnel are extememly thankful of the way they are treated with free refreshments and lunch, and they are able to enjoy a collective sense of comaraderie with others while enjoying being appreciated for their service.
