Thanks! $63,000, thanks!
Thanks to all who participated in MMIA’s annual Tee-Off For The Troops Golf Classic. It was huge success because of our many sponsors, volunteers and golfers. Our goal was to raise $60,000, a 25% increase over the net proceeds of $48,000 in 2013. Well, with lots of support for our mission, the 2014 Tee-Off For The Troops Golf Classic raised $63,000 (net)! Wow! Thanks, and thanks again, to all those who participated, donated, and worked to make 2014 TOFT a huge success!
THE HIGHLIGHTS: 300 golfers played in the two-day event; an additional 200 people attended the opening ceremonies over the two days; Miss North Carolina was in attendance, singing our national anthem; Major General Beth Austin, a member of the MMIA Board of Directors, was the keynote speaker; House-Autry Mills, our major sponsor, set up a tent on the course and fried chicken nuggets lightly-breaded in its chicken breader for the golfers as they played through that area; Bojangles sponsored a par-three, setting up a tent, playing corn-hole while waiting to play the hole, and giving away prizes including gift cards to all players. The entire event was spectacular with American flags posted throughout Bentwinds Country Club along with signs honoring members of the military.
Next year’s TOFT Golf Classic is November 11, 2015. Supporting MMIA through this event is a great way to show your appreciation to our veterans, especially those who are disabled. The tournament will sell out by October 1, 2015 and the best way to assure a space in the golf tournament is to be one of our many sponsors. If you wish to be one of the sponsors of this tournament, please contact our office: 919-552-1603
