Veteran’s Golf Tournament at Windtree Golf Course
Mt. Juliet’s Windtree Golf Course held a special morning golf tournament for veterans early last Friday morning, September 16th.
The veterans’ three-hour tournament was held at 8 a.m. before the Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce golf tournament.
The tournament directly benefited the local, Wilson County, BattleFlag Farms that helps PTSD Veteran’s and their families after they are home from war zone.
This fundraiser promotes awareness and raises funds to provide much needed support to those who have bravely served our military and are struggling to reenter and adapt to life back on the soil they fought to protect.
Sponsors of the event set up at every hole of the golf course with a tent and table offering drinks, snacks, and a door prize for residents and players to sign up for a giveaway. Sponsorship donation checks were directly written out to Battle Flag Farms to support its services to local veterans.
Sponsors included were: Hole #1 Ronnie Burgett Insurance, Hole #2 Lifetime Hearing Clinic, Hole #3 Gentiva Pallative Care and Hospice, Hole #4 Wood Financial, Hole #4 AutoWorks Auto Repair, Hole #6 Beacon Capital Management, Hole #7 Steamatic, Hole #8 First Freedom Bank, Hole #9 CertaPro Painters.
Lifestyle Director, Erin Brown, of Mid Atlantic Region represented Mt. Juliet’s Del Webb community at the event.
“We are very grateful for the generosity with our residents and their groups,” said Erin Brown.
Gentiva Pallative Care and Hospice representives, Debbie Glover and Jessica Johnson, volunteered at the event as a supporting sponsor.
Jessica Johnson assists weekly at Maristone of Providence Assisted Living & Memory Care in Mt. Juliet.
“We are very grateful to be a part of this great event for our local veterans. It is an honor to give back to those who have given us so much,” said Gentiva representative, Jessica Johnson.
A check was presented to the winners of the veteran tournament followed by door prize giveaways and a speech by Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce President, Mark Hinesley, thanking everyone for their support of the tournament.
