100 Holes Of Hope Hits Treasure Island With Minnesota PGA
Minnesota PGA and Treasure Island have teamed up for a marathon round of golf that will benefit veterans.
The concept is pretty awesome, as it will be PGA pros, military veterans and other golf enthusiasts in a round of 100 holes of golf, on the longest day of the year, which is June 21st. There will also be golf clinics for veterans and their families as well as a celebration at the end of the day.
All the proceeds benefit PGA REACH Minnesota; specifically, its PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) program as well as Disabled American Veterans.
“The Minnesota PGA and its professionals are excited to be able to recognize and give back to our nation’s heroes,” said Minnesota PGA CEO Jeffrey Hintz in a press release. “We are thrilled to partner with Treasure Island to make this event a reality and help veterans across Minnesota.”
Prairie Island Indian Community is proud to host the inaugural event for veterans. Native Americans serve in the U.S military in greater numbers than any other ethnic group.
“Native Americans have honorably served in the military for generations and our sacrifice has been great,” said Prairie Island Indian Community President Shelley Buck in a press release. “We are hopeful this event will underscore our care and concern for Native American – and all veterans – who use the game of golf as a therapeutic and healing activity.”
