Finley Supports Patriot Golf Day

Donations for Folds of Honor Foundation accepted at the course Sept. 2-5.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Golfers enjoying UNC Finley Golf Course this weekend will have the opportunity to support Patriot Golf Day and the Folds of Honor Foundation by making a donation at the course. The goal for facilities participating in the effort is to collect a $1 donation from each golfer (in addition to the normal greens fee) to support the Folds of Honor Foundation.

An annual, nation-wide event, Patriot Golf Day will be held over Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 2-5.

Patriot Golf Day and the Folds of Honor Foundation were the vision of PGA Professional Dan Rooney, an F-16 fighter pilot in the Oklahoma Air National Guard who has served three tours in Iraq.

Since the launch of Patriot Golf Day in 2007, more than $8.6 million dollars has been raised and more than 1,600 scholarships have been awarded to children and spouses of military men and women killed or disabled while serving in the U.S. military.
