12th Annual Holes for Heroes Golf Tournament to be held Sept. 14

The San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary Foundation will present its 12th Annual Holes for Heroes Golf Tournament and Military Appreciation event on Friday, Sept. 14, starting at 10:30 a.m. at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club in Solana Beach. Holes for Heroes has raised over $1.2 million since 2006 and hopes to continue the mission of honoring, celebrating and supporting the men and women of the military who made the commitment of Service Above Self.

“Rotary has a long tradition of supporting organizations that allow healing and hope for our wounded warriors and their families and veterans in the local San Diego community,” said Bobbi Spinner-Flack, president of San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary.

The tournament and military appreciation event provides a unique opportunity to spend a day on the links and dining with the troops that defend this country. Veterans and their family members and friends participate in the event for a fun, relaxing day in the sun filled with golf and use of the lovely Lomas Santa Fe Country Club grounds, including the pool, gym, tennis and spa facilities. The day concludes with the Holes for Heroes Reception/Recognition Dinner with over 200 in attendance honoring World War II, Korea and Vietnam veterans. Special honorees for this year are WWII veterans and families of those lost.

One-hundred percent of funds raised from the event directly benefit local military charities including: Freedom Dogs, Honor Flight, Pegasus Rising and One More Wave Surf Corporation, Veterans Village, Physicians Advocates for Veterans, Angels of America’s Fallen, USO, Armed Services YMCA, Operation BIGS and other military community service organizations.
