Probably the best thing I could tell you about Tee It Up For The Troops is to share a note written about our organization - which TIUFTT has supported - from the wife of a wounded warrior. What she says about us applies to TIUFTT too, because they have helped make it possible for us to do this very kind of thing for our veterans and service members.
THANK YOU Tee It Up For The Troops:
"My husband is a wounded warrior...he lost a leg in Afghanistan and struggled with a lot before we got in touch with PawPADs a couple years ago. We were eventually partnered with Barkley just over six months later. Barkley is a dog who was rescued from a shelter and trained in a prison...Barkley has changed our lives. There is not a piece of medical equipment on the planet that can do what this dog does for my husband. Barkley has given him a best friend and companion to share not only his struggles and hard times but his successes too...Barkley can turn on the lights and pick things up but the best thing he does is watch out for and take care of my husband...This is a nonprofit that is not only changing lives but changing the world while helping wounded warriors like my husband..."
Thanks again, Tee It Up For The Troops, for making this possible!
As the Executive Director of a non-profit based in San Diego that is supported by Tee It Up For The Troops, we have nothing but an excellent and professional partnership with them. The recent golf tournament they held was well run from check-in to check-out. The goal of the tournament was to have eighty golfers, and they had eighty-five. The function afterwards (including silent auction, live auction and donation request) were handled very well by a professional auctioneer. In the end, it was a successful event. We are thankful for the support of Tee It Up For The Troops.
Tee It Up for the Troops is an organization that delivers and goes above and beyond simply being a non-profit. Because of their dedication, veterans get more of the help that they might need in different areas, and it is a group of professionals who truly believe in giving back to those who have given everything for our country.
JB Ball and his family have created a national organization that rises money to help veterans of all conflicts. The dollars he has raised have gone to numerous projects for veterans acrossed the country. Golf is the venue that Tee It Up For the Troops using to collect the funds and it has grown since 2005 many tournaments acrossed the country. The Ball family is truly a gift to the community and their genoursity helps many acrossed the nation. We would be lucky if every community in country had a family like this.
As the father of a soldier who served in Iraq, the brother of a 20 year veteran, and the son of a WWII/Korean veteran,I am honored to be involved with the TEE IT UP FOR THE TROOPS organization. From humble beginnings at the request of a soldeir serving in Iraq for his family and friends to do something for the soldiers and the families back home, a grass roots effort was created in 2005. In five years TIUFTT has raised over $2,000,000.00 without any national media exposure. It is the american citizen telling the veteran you are appreciated-THANK YOU.
There has been no other veteran-oriented non-profit or charitable organization with which I have been involved, or that I am aware of, that is more dedicated and visionary than this one. The events organized are as well-run and inspirational as any I've seen. It is also among the lowest expense ratio 501(c)3 charitable organizations around which means almost all the money collected by this organization goes directly to support veteran's causes. Tee It Up For the Troops, Inc. was created in 2005 to help support the fallen and disable members of our Armed Forces and their families. The NATIONAL DAY OF GOLF was subsequently formed and has since produced hundreds of golf outings throughout the country where proceeds benefit veterans of all branches and conflicts. This organization is led by a core of dedicated veterans and volunteers. It's mission is to respect and remember the service of those that have given so freely to protect our great nation. It is guided by its charter to garner broad public and corporate support for the needs of veterans and their families through structured patriotically oriented events at both private and public golf courses; stand alone fundraising events, sponsorships and direct donations.
