A beautiful day in sunny south Florida began at the famously challenging Trump Doral golf course as golfers took a few practice swings and shot to the links on Thursday, November 10, 2016 for the second annual ScribeAmerica Charity Golf Tournament. The event was established to support our wounded veterans through the generosity and golfing prowess of our sponsors, and the hard work of our team members that made it possible.
Golfers arrived to a picturesque south Florida day. Our event started with a touching opening flag ceremony performed by local military personnel. Next, golfers teed up to take on the famous and formidable Blue Monster course, in the process raising funds for four well-respected veteran focused nonprofit organizations: Folds of Honor, Army Rangers Lead the Way, Wounded Veterans Relief Fund, and K-9s for Warriors. All of these organizations raise public awareness and provide assistance for injured service members and their families. They were also selected on the basis of low operating costs that allow them to channel a large proportion of donations directly into assistance programs.
Keeping in line with last year’s golf tournament, amidst the friendly competition on the course, golfers enjoyed a beautiful day on one of golf’s most celebrated courses. Our participants had the opportunity to challenge LPGA star and ScribeAmerica Brand Ambassador, Jaye Marie Green, in the Beat-the-Pro Challenge. Golfers balanced the rigor of the Blue Monster course with a few fun activities, including a potato gun ball launcher and other fund-raising activities. The weather and course could only be beat by the overwhelming support from the participants and event sponsors.

After a busy day on the links, everyone retired to the clubhouse for a well-earned dinner at which ScribeAmerica CEO, Dr. Michael Murphy, himself a veteran, presented awards to the tournament winners. Before dinner concluded, the audience heard from guest speakers from Wounded Veterans Relief Fund and Folds of Honor as they shared personal stories about the work the respective charities have done for their families.
ScribeAmerica plans to continue the annual tournament for years to come and wants to take this opportunity to once again congratulate and thank our event guests, our sponsors and our team members. It is their generosity of spirit and financial support that helped to make the charity event a continued success, and most importantly, allowed us to support our veterans who render such great service to our country, our families and freedoms.
