Admiral Nimitz Foundation Host 6th Successful Golf Tournament
The Admiral Nimitz Foundation held its sixth annual Nimitz Golf Classic on June 12th this year. Drawing golfers from all over the country to play in what has become a unique golfing experience at the beautiful and exclusive Boot Ranch in Fredericksburg, Texas. This year’s tournament raised around $250,000.
Each year the foundation chooses another non-profit which helps our military service members and donates a portion of the proceeds raised through the tournament to that organization. This year the Admiral Nimitz Foundation selected Trinity Oaks of San Antonio, Texas to be the recipient of a portion of the proceeds raised. General Mike Hagee USMC (Ret.), President and CEO of the Admiral Nimitz Foundation said, “We are a small organization and anytime we can move the needle for a smaller nonprofit that helps those who protect this country then that is what we do”. The money will go toward funding hunting, fishing, and camping trips for qualified combat veterans.
Trinity Oaks uses hunting, fishing, and outdoor activities to give back and make a difference in the lives of others. Their programs and services are for underserved populations such as veterans, youth, terminally ill and disabled; who benefit immensely from the outdoors, but otherwise would not be able to afford the experience.
Founded in 2007, Trinity Oaks is a U.S. registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, based in San Antonio, Texas
The Admiral Nimitz Foundation would like to thank Boot Ranch Golf Club for their generous support and major sponsors Ben E. Keith Co., Silver Eagle Distributors, and Valero Energy of San Antonio. The foundation would also like to thank their generous underwriters.
