What is the Folds of Honor Golf Classic at Woodloch Springs
Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, nearly 9 out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Folds of Honor seeks to meet this need by providing annual educational scholarships to the military families of those who have been killed or disabled while in active duty. These help support private education tuition, tutoring and educational summer camps for children K-12, as well as higher education tuition assistance for spouses and children. To date the Folds of Honor Golf Classic at Woodloch Springs has raised over $60,000 to support our local families including $30,000 in 2016 alone. Thank you for your support and may we never forget the 1% that protect the freedoms of the other 99%
