Throughout this Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 3-6, participating public golf courses nationwide will be raising funds to support the fourth Annual Patriot Golf Day Weekend.
Participating public golf courses will be soliciting a minimum of $1 for each green fee they process. These donations will go to the Folds of Honor Foundation which provides educational scholarships to families of those who have become disabled or lost their lives in the line of duty.
Major Dan Rooney, a PGA Professional and F-16 pilot in the 125 Fighter Squadron of the Oklahoma Air National Guard, founded the Folds of Honor Foundation following his second of three tours of duty in Iraq. Since 2007, the Folds of Honor Foundation through events like the ones being held this upcoming weekend, have raised approximately $5.3 million allowing the awarding of 1,163 post-secondary educational scholarships.
