During the Callaway Warrior Club Fitting at the TOUR Championship, Callaway presented a check for $50k to Special Operations Warrior Foundation, one of Birdies for the Brave's 11 official military home front groups. The Foundation supports America's Armed Forces by ensuring full financial assistance for post-secondary education to the surviving children of Special Operations personnel who lose their lives in the line of duty and provides immediate financial grants to severely combat-wounded and hospitalized Special Operations personnel and their families.
Accepting the check on behalf of Special Operations Warrior Foundation was MG Clayton Hutmacher, President and CEO of SOWF. “Getting to witness all that Birdies for the Brave and Callaway are doing for our veterans and military families has been incredible. On behalf of the families we serve, Special Operations Warrior Foundation is honored by and grateful for their support.”
Callaway Sales Rep, Casey Smith, presenting to SOWF, is personally invested in the cause, coming from a military family and having witnessed sacrifice himself. Casey remarks, “Callaway is honored to support Special Operations Warrior Foundation and the deserving families of fallen and wounded special operations. Supporting the military and gold star families is a cause close to my heart and I hope to continue this partnership between Callaway and SOWF.”
SOWF gave me the opportunity that my dad would have wanted me to have.
SOWF provided me with the tools to be successful, both in school and in life. They gave me the opportunity to intern with them, which was a learning experience that helped me in many ways. They are an organization that I trust and believe in wholeheartedly. I believe the staff and volunteers of SOWF truly care about each child, and they make it their mission to help them in any way they can.Kaylee Henry Read More
SOWF has been there since day one of my associate degree.
They have always made sure I got what I needed for my living expenses as well as my semester expenses. They not only have given me financial stability when I needed it the most, but also moral and emotional support. If it wasn’t for SOWF I wouldn’t be the professional teacher that I am today. For every success that I made and continue to make in my life, SOWF will be there at the top of the list for all of the thanks and recognition that they deserve for helping me carve my future.Steven Schmauss Read More
I cannot begin to express my gratitude,
knowing throughout the college admissions process, that the financial burden of college was no longer on our family. I am forever thankful for all the incredible things SOWF does for military personnel and their families. I am proud to be attending my dream school, the University of Chicago, because of all the Foundation does to honor those who have given their lives.Forrest Haydon Read More
