The 2017 CCF Golf Classic
Summer may have just begun, but fall is right around the corner – and that means it’s almost time for the 2017 CCF Golf Classic. Now in its seventh year, the Golf Classic has become a premiere event that the entire Carrington family enjoys. But most importantly, it is an inspiring and powerful day of hope, change and support for our nation’s wounded Veterans, who need our help as they move back into civilian life. We also honor those who served so bravely in our nation’s military, and helped create our wonderful privileges we enjoy here in the United States.
As always, the Golf Classic will take place on Monday, Oct. 9, 2017, at The Resort at Pelican Hill Newport Beach in Newport Beach, CA. Funds raised will support Carrington House, our signature program designed to create custom housing solutions for wounded Veterans. Thanks to the funds raised by the Golf Classic, Carrington House has built nearly two dozen custom, adaptive homes in communities across the United States, each designed to meet the special needs of wounded Veterans and their families.
Funds also will support the Veterans Airlift Command (VAC), a Veteran-run business that provides transportation for wounded Veterans traveling to and from medical facilities to complete physical rehabilitation. The VAC works with a network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots, and organizes free air transportation for severely wounded Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts and their families. For the past nine years, Carrington Aviation has participated on missions with aircraft and crew, transporting heroes to medical facilities for treatment and reuniting them with their loved ones.
In keeping with our goals to provide unparalleled support for Veterans, CCF also recently announced an expansion in its mission to provide Veterans with the guidance and support they need to rejoin civilian life through services including job-search assistance, business-plan consulting, counseling, treatment referrals and more.
We’re proud to say our 2016 Golf Classic marked our best yet, with $2.2 million raised for these worthy causes. To date, the CCF Golf Classic has raised more than $12 million to help our nation’s wounded heroes.
The Golf Classic is a powerful, inspirational and moving event, starting with a fun-filled day of golf, and ending with a banquet and silent auction, featuring motivating speeches and presentations. In fact, the event has become so revered that the Orange County Business Journal has named it the Top Netting Golf Event in Orange County over two consecutive years.
The Golf Classic is special, and meaningful to so many – but we couldn’t make it happen without the help of our generous sponsors, guests, participants and volunteers. Whether you’ve previously been a part of the Golf Classic, or if this is your first time, we hope you’ll join this year’s event, and help make a difference for our nation’s Veterans.
