Ryan Mulvey and his KemperSports team at Bay Point Golf Club in Panama City, Florida recently finished their third year participating in Patriot Golf Day.
This past year they participated in two different ways. The first was a golf marathon, where Ryan, along with golf professionals Nate Star and Colby Pitts, played 150 holes in one day and raised about $6,000.
The second way they participated was through a daily hole-in-one competition. Golfers could donate $15 for a chance to win if they made a hole-in-one on the 16th hole. This event raised another $500.
In addition, the club has a Patriot Legacy Fund that keeps their membership engaged year-round. The annual fund is supported by monthly contributions on participants’ membership bills. To date, the fund has contributed more than $100,000 to Folds of Honor.
When asked what made their Patriot Golf Day events successful, Ryan said “In addition to fundraising, we also made it a priority to get the message out about Folds of Honor and tell people about the incredible mission. We ensured people understood the mission and where their money was going really helped us gain support from the local community that will help our Patriot Golf Day be successful for years to come."
