The 2nd Annual Captain Caps Golf Tournament on Friday August 7th, 2020 started on a beautiful sun filled morning. The golf tournament went to a tee time assignment, instead of a shotgun start. The morning started with a buzz no tournament this summer had. We had 189 golfers scheduled for the day. We wanted to make each golfer feel like it was a normal shotgun start. so we put a video together that talked about the state of the foundation and where we are headed. We also included a prayer, the playing of taps and the National Anthem. Everyone viewed the video before we sent them out them off for their round. As they teed off we had each foursone photgraphed. We also sponsored a food drive to help the local food banks. All the golfers and local citizens contributed 2 truck loads to help the local food bank. Another incredible gesture to our foundation was that other golfers who were at the golf course that day also stopped by to watch the video. We had several activities on the golf course to help raise additional funds and make the tournament exciting to bring back golfers each year. It was a long day, we had golfers on the course from 6:45am until 7:30pm. The tournament was a huge success and everyone loved the tournament and plan to come back next year. The tournament raised $25,000 for the Tailwinds of Hope Foundation, which help with our commitment of $25,000 in scholarships the Foundation awards annually. We are so thankful for the generous hearts everyone displayed by particiapating in the golf tournament. We can't wait for next years golf tournament and have already started planning for the event.
We are filled with immense gratitude from all the support received at our 1st Annual Captain Caps Golf Tournament.
