Fairways for Warriors Veterans Day Golf Tournament Raises Record Setting Goal

Knight Federal Participates as Gold Level Sponsor

Golfers from businesses across Central Florida participated in the 8th annual Veterans Day Golf Tournament to benefit Fairways for Warriors Orlando Chapter.  The event was held on Friday, November 8, 2018, at the Eagle Creek Golf Club in Orlando.  This year’s event was sold out and raised more than $50K – setting a new record!. 

“Fairways for Warriors is significantly changing and saving the lives of our nation’s combat wounded veterans and their families.  We are so fortunate to be a corporate sponsor for this annual event and take pride in helping those that have sacrificed so much for us,” says event organizer and Knight Federal’s CEO Chris Baeten.

Fairways for Warriors is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization dedicated to providing a better quality of life for the nation’s wounded veterans by using golf and golf instruction to wounded service personnel and their family members. 

Golf has proven to be an excellent tool for mental and physical rehabilitation, and Fairways for Warriors is giving these brave men and women the opportunity to heal from their most significant injuries – unseen injuries such as depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), etc.
