Last month’s Fidelity Support Our Troops charity golf tournament continued the string of record fundraising. While the 2016 tournament field was slightly smaller than 2015 (122 participants including 29 military), charity fundraising increased from the record $18,000 made last year to a new record of $19,258 at this year’s tournament.
Out of the $19,258 raised for charity, 60% will go to the direct support of 80 military men and women related to Robson Ranch residents; the remaining 40% will be donated to various other military charities such as Patriot Paws, which trains service dogs for veterans. As has always been the policy of SOT, 100% of every donated dollar goes to the troops.
The tournament is a unique partnership between generous Robson Ranch residents who host the visiting military, Robson Corporation who covers all of the military guest expenses, and a legion of charitable donors and sponsors who are the very heart of the charity fundraising effort.
