Next month, the Corps Golf Team will host a charity golf tournament, For the Folds, benefitting the nonprofit organization, Folds of Honor. The tournament has been organized entirely by cadets and will feature a traditional golf scramble at Traditions Country Club. The 4 person teams will include two cadets, a player from the Texas A&M NCAA golf team and a special guest.
The Corps Golf Team has partnered with Folds of Honor, a nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships to the spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled military service members. Since inception in 2007, Folds of Honor has awarded 28,000 scholarships in all 50 states. However, the need for scholarships continues to rise. Despite financial support being greater than ever, more than 500 eligible qualified applicants were turned away and went unfunded in 2020. The Corps Golf Team hopes to close the scholarship gap through the For the Folds golf tournament.
There are a few ways to support the golf team’s efforts. Those interested are able to show their support by direct donation at http://foh.org/aggiecorpsgolfteam or by pledging support of one of the teams based on their success on the course. For each birdie (one under par) and each eagle (two under par), donors can pledge to support a team at one of the following levels:
$2 per birdie & $10 per eagle
$5 per birdie & $15 per eagle
$10 per birdie & $20 per eagle
$20 per birdie & $30 per eagle (includes dinner at the end of the tournament)
Pledges can be made by sending an email to email@example.com with your chosen amount. Following the event, the number of birdies and eagles made will be shared with donors. All donors are invited to the tournament on March 26th to follow the event live. A dinner will take place after the tournament and will feature guest speakers and a silent auction. Tickets to the dinner can be purchased for $50 each and only a limited quantity are available. To purchase tickets to the dinner, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is just one more example of how our cadets consistently demonstrate selfless service. This golf tournament speaks to our cadets’ dedication to serve others and leave a lasting impact. I am proud of these cadets and honored to support this event!
