Two quick items related to Veteran’s day:
There are lots of worthy charities related to Veterans, but one my office has been involved with has been Caddy for a Cure : For a gift of $5,000 and up, an avid golfer can spend some the day caddying for one of the world’s best golfers at an official PGA TOUR tournament. (previously mentioned here )
The military vet aspect of this is a program called Birdies for the Brave .
I am not a golfer, but I know that many people who read this site are, and may want to participate in a related charity that goes to Veterans. And, the best part of this is (according to Caddy for a Cure’s website ) 100% of the proceeds goes to charity.
