Patriot Shootout-Indiana


The time we've been waiting for has finally come! Patriot Shootout-Indiana has worked so hard to get to this weekend and what an amazing success it was! I am so proud that I could be a part of this event and support Folds of Honor and the great mission that have! 

Did you know that only 1/2 of 1% of our population is in the military? That small amount of men and women allow the other 99% of us to rest easily each night knowing that we're protected and someone else is watching over.  This is just one reason why we support the Folds of Honor!

Friday night was the Gala at The Columbia Club in downtown Indiana and the turnout was amazing!! The room was filled with people helping people.  Stories of loss and pain then covered in a blanket of love from those around.  This is why I'm proud to be an American!

Then Saturday was off to the course... FORE! The Legends Golf Course in Franklin, Indiana has been the home of the first 2 Patriot Shootout events here in Indiana and what a blessing it's been.  Men and women of our military together with men and women that love and support join together for a fun round of golf and competition to raise money for the Folds.

At the end of the weekend, I was exhausted... but in a good way! Money was raised, friends were made and lives were changed! That's what we meant to do... SUCCESS! The need doesn't go away after this weekend though.  All year long there are miltiary families that experience loss and children of those parents that are left with a hole in their hearts.  Folds of Honor works hard all year long to take care of these families, to provide for these children and show love and gratitude for the sacrifice.

Please continue to follow me in this mission... Folds of Honor!
