The 10th annual Hope For The Warriors® tournament took place in August, and this year’s events were ones for the books. From the list of celebrities to the addition of new events to the amount of money raised, the staff and volunteers truly went out of their way to make this fundraiser the best ever.
Following Saturday night’s unofficial opening – the Mad Boar Block Party, celebrities, flag officers, and sponsors gathered Sunday afternoon for a newly added Par 3 Challenge. Teams were treated to our recently added Par 3 courses for a quick competition before the tournament to follow. Those who participated loved the care-free camaraderie the event offered and are looking forward to participating again next year.
After the Par 3 challenge, everyone gathered on our outdoor pool deck for live music, conversation, and drinks around 6:30 pm. Old friends reunited and new friendships were forged as the evening gave way to the main event: Warrior Night.
In honor of the tenth year, organizers decided to host the traditional Warrior Night mess outdoors under a tent borrowed from the base. The cooler temperatures and light breeze made for a pers support of Hope For The Warriors has forged friendships that will last a lifetime. We are very thankful for all of the sponsors, celebrities, flag officers, volunteers, and participants who made this year and every year such a success. Our team has already started planning next year’s tournament, which will take place on August 15-17, 2020. Mark your calendars and make plans to attend!
