Sunday, May 3, 2015


WOW! What a great first year for The Special Operations Golf Tournament of South Florida!  The weather was great, the participation was awesome, and the support was huge!  Many thank you's to all of our sponsors, supporters, donators, and participants!   All of you have helped the children and families of our Special Operations Forces.

This year's Special Operations Golf Tournament of South Florida presented by Hyundai, brings together great golf, food, drinks, gifts, giveaways, and awesome prizes, while supporting the children and families of fallen and wounded Special Operations members through the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

Prizes include two winners receiving an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas to compete in the Hyundai Invitational, hole-in-one prizes including a new 2015 Hyundai Genesis, and amazing player gift bag! Just ask OUR last year's winner, Tony Gordon, who not only had a first-class experience in Las Vegas, but nailed the hole-in-one taking home the 2015 Hyundai Genesis! Wrapped around the golf tournament is lunch, a golf clinic, tribute to the military, live & silent auction, and awards dinner.

Sponsors & supporters include Spirit Airlines, Ortega Cigar Company, Miami Marlins, Whole Foods Market, Jacaranda Golf Club and more!

If you're playing golf on Sunday, you might as well come out and enjoy a great event for a great cause!

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides surviving children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps Special Operations Forces killed in the line of duty with the college education the fallen parent would have wanted for them.  The Foundation does much more than just sending out a check to the recipients.  The Foundation provides educational counseling, family support, and much needed immediate financial assistance to severely wounded and hospitalized Special Operations personnel.  The Foundation becomes family for many of the children and spouses who lost their parent or spouse.

The Foundation is nationally recognized by Charity Navigator, 60 Minutes, and Birdies for the Brave by the PGA Tour, and has an exceptional history of providing the most money to the children and families in need, by maintaining a low administrative overhead of 5.5% or less and has received 9 consecutive 4-Star ratings by Charity Navigator.

Created in 1980, Special Operations Warrior Foundation is devoted to providing a college education to every child who has lost a parent serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps during an operational or training mission under the U.S. Special Operations Command. This includes over 70,000 military special operations and support personnel assigned to units throughout the United States and around the world.

The Warrior Foundation is currently committed to providing scholarship grants to more than 1,000 children of the more than 900 Special Operations personnel who have given their lives for their country since 1980, including those who died fighting our nation's war against terrorism as part of "Operation Enduring Freedom" in Afghanistan and the Philippines as well as "Operation Iraqi Freedom."

Currently, 232 children of fallen special operations warriors have graduated from college with the assistance of the SOWF. The Special Operations Warrior Foundation also provides immediate $3,000 cash grants to personnel seriously wounded in the line of duty. Once notified of a special operations soldier, airman, sailor or Marine hospitalized with a severe injury, the SOWF immediately sends funds to the service member (or his/her designated recipient) so family members can immediately travel to be at their loved one's bedside. Since this program began in 2005, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation has provided over $ 1.8 million to wounded special operations personnel.
