Central Illinois Tee It Up For The Troops

TEE IT UP FOR THE TROOPS is a non-profit organization established in 2005 at the request of a soldier from Minnesota who, while serving in Iraq, was asked by his Father what he needed. He responded by saying, “I am fine, do something for the soldiers and their families back home”. TEE IT UP FOR THE TROOPS was created to honor that request.

Over $1,000,000 has been raised, and donated to military family support programs across the country since 2005.

Our purpose, here in Peoria, is to raise money to support the Wounded Warriors, for Families of Servicemen and women of Central Illinois who, because of their commitment to serve have been faced with financial hardship (or challenge) and last to establish 10 Scholarships in the name of General Wayne Downing for the Children of Fallen Soldiers from Central Illinois or to further the education of a Disabled Soldier.

The Fourth Annual TEE IT UP FOR THE TROOPS Golf Classic will be held on Monday, August 27, 2012 at Mt. Hawley Country Club and the Country Club of Peoria.
