Based on figures released by the PGA of America, the 2010 Patriot Golf Day raised more than $2.7 million in scholarship funds for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled in the line of duty. That represents a record amount for the fourth-year program.
Several D-FW courses took part in the national initiative, held during Labor Day Weekend, in which golfers were asked to donate at least $1 for each round to the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides the scholarships. The 2010 total, announced Nov. 3, means the annual event has raised more than $8 million since it began in 2007.
