ATTN: EVERYONE – the Jim Shockey Classic Charity Golf Tournament is just around the corner and spots are filling up fast! As many of y’all know, my Dad is REALLY into anything in the outdoors and also anything that involves competition, so golf is right up his alley! Thankfully, he has channeled his obsession with golfing into an incredible event that raises money to bring military veterans and active duty members on all-expenses-paid adventures around the world. It’s called the Jim Shockey Classic happening in Myrtle Beach, SC on December 2nd and 3rd and YOU NEED TO BE A PART OF IT!!!!
What is better than being outdoors AND supporting a good cause?! It does wonders for your spirit. The Jim Shockey Classic is a charity golf tournament that raises money to send both Canadian and American veterans and active duty members on some INCREDIBLE hunting trips where they can make memories of a lifetime. Pull on my heartstrings a little bit more why don’t you?!! But seriously… I look forward to this event every year because of how fun it is and even more importantly, how much of a difference it makes to everyone involved.
This year Tim, Leni and I will be joining my parents at the event and I CANNOT WAIT! I haven’t decided if I’ll be golfing or hosting various events but Tim will be golfing for sure (and he’s SO good so you definitely want to request to be on his team) as well as my dad and a ton of other men and women of all levels. If you’re an expert, you’ll kill it! And if you’re a beginner, you’ll have a great time with everyone and will enjoy the day just as much. Come one, come all – it’s going to be F-U-N!!!!
The Classic is supported by Freedom Hunters, which is a Military Outreach program dedicated to honoring those who protect our Freedoms. The mission of the Jim Shockey Classic is to salute the noble work of our courageous men and women of our Armed Forces and boy do they deserve it!
The tournament is held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at the stunning Grande Dunes Members Club on December 2-3, 2018. This place is gorgeous and I mean absolutely GOR-GE-OUS… with a state-of-the-art golf course. We have a fundraising auction on the evening of December 2nd and the Golf Tournament itself will be during the day of December 3rd . If golf is not for you, the food, wine, spa, view, shopping and entire experience is incredible and worth the trip.
The day of the tournament is filled with fun, fellowship and fundraising and I am so excited to see how many members of the armed forces we will get to support through our efforts. I don’t know the exact number but I think it’s somewhere around half a million dollars raised so far and we want to make that number even BIGGER!! I mean, how amazing is it to kick off the Christmas season by doing some serious good for our Heroes?! It always means the world to me to see others in the spirit of giving back to those that deserve it… and then some!
This is such a special cause for our family and for so many others, especially because it involves getting even more people into the great outdoors. Above all else, I think this is the legacy my Dad will be most known for – making a difference in the lives of people who have made SUCH a difference in all of our lives.
We hope to see you on the course in December! Space is limited so here’s all the info if YOU or anyone you know wants to reserve a spot or be a sponsor of the tournament!!! Please pass this blog along so everyone can get in on this great cause!
Please join us in making this the BIGGEST FUNDRAISING EVENT YET!
