The Three Rangers Foundation will host a fundraiser next week honoring Gold Star Families at their annual golf tournament, according to WMAR. The event, which is in its fifth year, brings together veterans and Gold Star Families and memorializes a fallen ranger. Their largest fundraiser of the year, the golf tournament will take place May 25 at the Whiskey Creek Golf Club in Maryland, just ahead of Memorial Day, and feature guest speakers, combat veterans, a silent auction and more.
The funds raised will support the Three Rangers Foundation, a nonprofit that provides personalized mentorship to Ranger Regiment veterans with the goal of helping them “thrive through a military career and succeed in post-military life.” In addition to mentorship, the foundation’s programs include creating financial wellness plans, advocating for and educating veterans and eligible family members on medical and other benefits, spiritual fitness which focuses on mental health, legal assistance, and their Gold Star program that cares for Gold Star Families.
Marcus Hull, the chairman of the board for the Three Rangers Foundation shared that the event is a “great experience” especially because the golfers get to meet the Gold Star Family and hear stories about the hero they are honoring. Gold Star Families are a main focus of the work the foundation does which includes sponsoring a hunting trip for children of fallen heroes and they will be having a trip for mothers and spouses as well.
Though the golf tournament is sold out for this year, other ways to participate in supporting the Three Rangers Foundation includes purchasing a ticket for dinner, making a donation, or sponsoring the event. Honoring veterans and Gold Star Families, the Three Rangers Foundation is providing Americans the opportunity to give back to those who gave all, remembering our fallen heroes and their families for their sacrifice.
