HOPEWELL, NJ (June 29, 2016) – Spirit Golf Management will launch its Red Shirt Fridays initiative this Friday, July 1, to benefit wounded military veterans and fallen service member families through the Folds of Honor Foundation. The program will run from Friday of the Fourth of July weekend through Friday, September 2 of the Labor Day weekend.
“We are proud to announce all Spirit Golf managed clubs are participating in this initiative to contribute to the Folds of Honor Foundation and its Patriot Golf Day campaign,” said Mike Attara, President of Spirit Golf Management and PGA General Manager and CEO for Hopewell Valley Golf & County Club. Our clubs, Five Ponds Golf Club, Warminster, PA; Greencastle Golf Club, PA; HVGCC, Hopewell, NJ; Makefield Highlands Golf Club, Yardley, PA; Mill Race Golf & Camping, Benton, PA; and Stonybrook Golf Club, Hopewell, NJ are all participating in the program.
“While each club will offer its own unique promotion, all clubs on Fridays will offer a discount and contribution on rounds played by golfers who wear a red shirt, and a healthy discount off any red merchandise purchased in the Pro Shop. The Folds of Honor Foundation, that Spirit Golf and the PGA support, helps the families of fallen and wounded service members, so that no one is forgotten on the battlefield. What could be a better time to honor our service members than the celebration of the founding of our country on the Fourth of July? Our clubs and Spirit are privileged to be able to support our nation’s heroes and their families, and to give back,” stated Attara.
“It is with great honor and privilege that I recognize Spirit Golf in their promotion of Red Shirt Fridays. In doing this, Spirit Golf not only memorializes the sacrifice made by soldiers of our great nation, but also contributes to the legacy of their families. Proceeds from discounts on rounds of golf and red apparel will benefit the Spirit Golf Patriot Golf Day campaign,” said Major Dan Rooney, CEO/Founder, The Folds of Honor Foundation.
“It is this spirit of patriotism and humility that keeps our freedoms alive, and brings meaning to the Folds of Honor Foundation’s mission. Our relationship with Spirit Golf is a great example of force multiplication. This type of support makes permanent changes in the lives and families of our service members. For this, we are incredibly grateful,” added Rooney.
