The 6th Annual Carrington Charitable Foundation Golf Classic

August 17, 2016

As we all know, October is right around the corner – and that means we’re less than two months away from the 6th annual Carrington Charitable Foundation Golf Classic! As a reminder, this year’s event is taking place at The Resort on Pelican Hill on Monday, October 10th. There’s plenty of work to be done, both before the event and onsite as it’s happening. And we’re calling on your help!

Simply put, we can’t do it without you. Whether you’ve volunteered for the Golf Classic every year, or even if this is your first year, this is the biggest event that CCF undertakes – and it supports so many, offering hope and sharing the love of all who care for our nation’s Veterans. Before the event even begins, we could use your help putting together the auction baskets, which will be auctioned off during the evening’s festivities. We’d also love your assistance in packing the swag bags for participating golfers, so they can return home with memorabilia to remind them of their participation in this amazing event.

Of course, we’ll need a lot of hands on deck for the day of! We’re looking for volunteers who can help set up in the morning and assist with registering all the participants. There are also volunteer positions for those who want to be out in the action, as we’ll need people who can help on the golf course, manning holes and offering general assistance to the golfers as they work their way through the course. We’re also in need of assistance with set up for the evening’s events, assisting with the auction, and even helping to seat our honored Veterans as we transition into our night-time activities. And then there will be general volunteer roles for those who can be on hand to help out as needed, insuring that the event runs smoothly as it has in years past.

CCF is honored to be in our sixth year of using the CCF Golf Classic to support the Veterans Airlift Command and Carrington House, two programs dedicated to supporting and assisting the wounded heroes who served so selflessly to advance the cause of freedom. In our fifth year of this event, we raised a record $1.8 million to help support these worthy causes and the Veterans they assist – and we’ve raised nearly $9 million during the past five years. With a full day of events, starting with a wonderful day of golf, and transitioning into an evening filled with powerful speakers and celebrations of those we honor, there are so many opportunities to lend your time and support to ensure that this year is our most successful Golf Classic yet. We hope you’ll get in touch to help us make this event a grand success, and once again, show our Veterans how much we care. Contact CCF for more details on how you can get involved!
