This year’s “Serving Honor and Need” golf tournament to benefit the Gary Sinise Foundation has found a new course to host this event. Last year’s venue is busy preparing for an international event, which requires their full devotion and, unfortunately, detracts from our ability to provide the highest level of attention our veterans deserve. That being said, we didn’t want this to stop us from raising support for our veterans and their families.
IRIS Fire Investigations is proud to host the 2nd annual Gary Sinise “Serving Honor and Need” Golf Tournament at the Eisenhower Golf Club on the grounds of the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs Colorado. Named after former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who took part in the dedication ceremony, it is a modern scenic facility with two 18-hole courses: the championship Blue, and the stunning Silver. Named the top golf course in the Department of Defense by Travel and Leisure Golf magazine, and a member of USA Today's Top 100 courses in the nation. The Blue's layout was designed by Robert Trent Jones and measures more than 7,300 yards from the championship tees, 6,516 from the regular tees and 5,559 from the forward tees. The Silver is a demanding golf course with a premium placed on accuracy rather than length. The course measures 6,519 yards from the championship tees and 5,215 from the forward tees.
The Gary Sinise Foundation was formed to serve our Nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. They do this by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.
Last year, Gary and his band played a concert the day before the golf tournament to raise money. The following day Gary attended the golf tournament to meet and greet all the golfers. This year, during the same time as our tournament, Gary and the band have an opportunity to raise money for a wounded veteran to help build him a smart home. Unfortunately, this will prevent Gary and the band from actively participating in our event. This should not dissuade you however, from participating this year. Gary has expressed a deep appreciation of the Colorado beauty and a strong desire to return and take part in our event in the future. In the meantime, we remain as resolved as ever to continue in our efforts to support our troops and their families.
The opportunities to play a historic course on the grounds of the United States Air Force Academy do not present itself very often. As such, we are making this year’s tournament more attractive for more participates to show their support for our veteran’s. Included in the price is lunch, dinner, a golf clinic before the tournament and opportunities to purchase autographed merchandise, suitable for framing, to memorialize your participation
There are many opportunities to participate; from a single golfer, a foursome, corporate sponsorship, hole sponsorships, refreshment sponsorship and many more. Please contact us with any questions, or register by clicking the link below.
