On Memorial Day weekend, the Folds of Honor and The Patriot Golf Club co-hosted their annual Patriot Cup, an exclusive, invitation-only golf tournament and gala celebrating our nation’s heroes. This event was attended by the Champions Tour, PGA and LPGA Professionals, top military golfers from across the country, and a host of celebrities such as Kid Rock, Dierks Bentley, and Adam Baldwin. CORT is proud to be a supporter of the Folds of Honor and is honored to be a part of this amazing event!
CORT team members from the Tulsa showroom took part in the two-day event, and witnessed firsthand the Folds of Honor mission and the impact the organization is having on our military personnel and their families. One example is a 21-year military veteran and single mom of a college-aged son. Although she has a full-time job and received military retirement pay from her time in the United States Air Force, it is sometimes hard for her to make ends meet. That’s where the Folds of Honor stepped in and awarded her son with a $5,000 scholarship to help pay for tuition, room and board and books. Without the scholarship, she and her son would have had to make other sacrifices in their lives to put him through college. Haven’t our veterans already sacrificed enough?
Right now, one of the Folds of Honor’s biggest challenges is that they are hitting record high scholarship application numbers but lack the additional $1.8M dollars needed to help all of these military families across the country.
As you take time to celebrate our nation’s Independence Day, we encourage you to also spend time reflecting on those who make our freedom possible. If you would like to learn more about the Folds of Honor or to make a donation, please visit www.foldsofhonor.org.
