Tee It Up for the Troops is a national organization that supports programs to help combat warriors overcome physical, mental, and emotional wounds and regain their independence. The change from the battlefront to the home front can be particularly challenging for combat veterans, who often are working through war-related PTSD, depression, anxiety, and more.
Local volunteers who organize ‘on the ground’ can select a local veteran service organization to receive up to 50% of the net proceeds. For the Sioux Falls event, they have selected DTOM220 (https://dtom220.org) -a ranch for veterans and their families where they provide equine therapy and more.
The other 50% of the net proceeds goes to Tee It Up for the Troops national office to provide grants to partner organizations like Fisher House, or Move United (formerly - DS USA - Warfighter Sports).
Gordon served many years in the SD Army National Guard, and most of our team members have had family members serve in the military, so the whole team cares deeply about supporting organizations working for veterans.
