If you were at the Falls Road Golf Course of Potomac this rainy weekend, you'd know for a fact that there is $10k on the line for golf fans willing to take their chance at hitting a 100 yard hole-in-one! Make the shot and not only do you walk away $10,000 richer, but Quicken Loans also donates $10,000 to the Tiger Woods Foundation and Operation Homefront for the benefit of veterans and military families. And, any ball that lands within seven feet of the hole is worth $100 to the golfer. As a bonus, golfers that land the hole-in-one, as well as those who land the closest each week, will also be treated to a VIP experience at the Quicken Loan National.
Another fun fact is that there is no cost for golfers to participate in the challenge, which always takes place at a public golf course across Montgomery County, MD. There is nothing to lose for the golfers and $10 is donated to the fund for each golfer that attempts. That being said, no attempt is in vain!
WHEN & WHERE?
"Shot for Heroes" is taking place at four public golf courses across Montgomery County. It started this weekend and will take place every weekend, on both Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am - 5:00pm, until the tournament begins:
*May 21-22 - Falls Road, Potomac
*May 28-29 - Northwest, Silver Spring
*June 4-5 - Needwood, Derwood
*June 11-12 - Little Bennett, Clarksburg
*June 18-19 - Falls Road, Potomac
The Quicken Loans National is taking over local public golf courses so that the public can participate in the challenge. I mentioned that it is FREE to attempt the "Shot for Heroes", but I didn't mention the golfer qualifications: NONE! Yes, that is right, everyone is welcome to take the challenge; amateur golfers and golf fans alike. Each participant receives two attempts to get the job done.
The "Shot for Heroes" campaign coincides with the Quicken Loan National. This August is the Quicken Loan National's 10-year anniversary and they are bringing the tournament back to where it all started in 2007 at the Congressional Country Club of Montgomery County, MD.
Did you know that beyond the Tiger Woods Foundation's dedication to youth enrichment is also a dedication to serving those who have selflessly served our country? Tiger Woods is passionate about those who put their safety on the line to protect our country. Soldiers and their families pay the ultimate for our safety and the liberties we enjoy. We need to say "thank you" more often then we do and this funding is just one of the ways Quicken Loans and The Tiger Woods Foundation show their appreciation. Every dollar raised in this program will benefit the veterans and their families through both the Tiger Woods Foundation and Operation Homefront.
Last year, the program raised $235,000 for our heroes! I'm confident that "Shot for Heroes" can raise more this year in Montgomery County, but your help is needed:
*Share the Message. Tell a friend. Actually, tell ALL of them by sharing this post!
*Have Faith! You lose nothing by trying and each shot brings awareness!
*Take the Shot!
I was blessed enough to participate in Media Day at Congressional Country Club on May 16 and hear all about the program firsthand. For more information on this program and it's sponsors, check out the following sources:
