Golfers — be it serious players or casual duffers — don’t usually need an excuse to hit the links. Any invitation will do. But what if by playing a round of golf you could help send poor children in Kenya to school? Or provide medical care to an impoverished village in Haiti? Or provide desperately needed services for American veterans. Well, now it can.
The 2nd Annual Kyrus Charities Open Golf Tournament is coming up right here in Loudoun County — with proceeds going to benefit seven different worthy charities.
The event is taking place Monday, September 26 at the Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club in Leesburg. Raspberry Falls is the only Gary Player signature course in the Mid-Atlantic region.
And whether you are an experienced golfer or a newbie, don’t worry. The Kyrus Charities Open tournament has a spot for you. That’s because this is a two-tiered tourney — with a tournament for pro and experienced golfers happening simultaneously with a tournament aimed at beginners.
Just think — a day of teeing off, driving and putting — with friends and colleagues — while doing a truly good deed and helping others.
This year, three new charities aimed at our military men and women have been added to the Kyrus Charities line-up. This includes the following:
- The Honor Foundation, which helps veterans transition from military to civilian life
- CLIMB4, a non-profit that provides essential gear to make backcountry hikes more accessible to veterans suffering from PTSD and aid them in their healing
- Three Rangers, aimed at helping the families of fallen Army Rangers
The other charities the tournament will benefit include:
- Upside Down Moments, a group that provides foster children exiting the system with furniture, clothes and a small stipend to start their adult life
- Flip Flop Friends, that raises funds for children in Africa to go to school
- Gap Community, an organization that supports communities by offering leadership development and humanitarian aid
- #500Rising, which trains women and men in self-defense and empowers them to train others
The deadline for registration for the tournament is coming up. The last day to sign up is September 20. So call your golfing buddies and office mates and head over to this link to register today.
