On May 1st and 2nd, Bobby Medlen organized the 2nd Annual Chip In for Veterans Golf Tournament in Charleston, South Carolina.
Much like last year, the turnout was amazing with over 100 golfers participating. There was also a silent auction that offered golf and hotel packages, golf equipment, iPads and other various items. With the tournament and auction, the event raised $90,000 to donate to the 2 charities involved!!
PGA HOPE, the Military Pillar of PGA REACH, provides golf as a therapeutic rehabilitation tool for all military Veterans. The lifetime sport of golf has proven to be an excellent outlet for activity and competition but also allows military to assimilate back into their community through the social interaction the game provides.
The Stand Up and Play Foundation was formed to help wheelchair users and other people with impaired mobility have the opportunity to stand up and participate in sporting, artistic and other daily events.
This event looked like so much fun and went off without a hitch. It’s incredible to see so much involvement and to be able to raise such an astonishing amount of money for a worthy cause. Check out all the fun!
