Looking to leave a mark beyond the traditional activities that surround a national political convention, a group of corporate leaders and Washington, D.C. professionals have organized a charitable golf tournament and auction to benefit “Birdies for the Brave,” a national military outreach initiative proudly supported by the PGA TOUR. The events will be held at the TPC Tampa Bay on Monday, August 27, 2012 during the Republican National Convention.
The event has committed to raise over $1 million in cash and other resources for our nation's military heroes - including two specially adapted homes that will be awarded to deserving wounded warriors and their families at the event. It is co-hosted by SAP and Intel Corporation, with Honorary Co-Chairmen Speaker John Boehner, Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell, Bill McDermott, Co-CEO of SAP, and Paul Otellini, President and CEO of Intel Corporation.
“This idea started in mid-2011, when a group of us decided that we wanted to step away from the politics of the conventions and leave a mark by giving back to our returning military heroes,” said Ari Storch, Event Founder and Chairman and partner in the Washington, D.C. government affairs firm Artemis Strategies. “In our eyes it was important that we step away from the politics and rhetoric and actually take action to recognize and demonstrate our appreciation for those that fight for our freedom - and, just as important those who stay behind to enable those heroes to do their work.”
Supporters include numerous Members of Congress and Governors, corporate leaders like Bridgestone, Ford Motor Company, the National Association of Homebuilders, Amway, eBay, Yamaha, Verizon, Artemis Strategies and the American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries.Among the benefitting charities are:
|Homes for Our Troops||Special Operations Warrior Foundation|
|Operation Homefront||Navy SEAL Foundation|
|United Through Reading||Military Warriors Support Foundation|
|Green Beret Foundation||Disabled American Veterans - Tampa Bay Chapter|
