TPC River’s Bend: Charitable Initiatives
TPC River’s Bend, just like the PGA TOUR takes its responsibility as a community leader in charitable giving very seriously. While there are many opportunities for the club to work with charitable events throughout the year to help various foundations make a difference, there are two specific events that help TPC River’s Bend stand out.
- Birdies for the Brave
Birdies for the Brave is a PGA TOUR initiative for which TPC River’s Bend holds an annual golf outing and dinner. Under the umbrella of Birdies for the Brave are nine other foundations that support the men and women of the military and their families on the home front. For more information, please visit birdiesforthebrave.org. In the past three years, TPC River’s Bend has raised more than $300,000 for Birdies for the Brave and will continue to press forward with this important PGA TOUR Initiative.
Special Thanks to Our Silver Sponsor GE Aviation
- Think Pink Cure – Breast Cancer Outing
Nearly 10 years ago, a group of our Members took on the challenge of working with the club to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. In its infancy, the event was very popular and raised money for this important cause. As the event and leadership evolved, it has become a leader in the community in raising money for breast cancer research and awareness.The event now supports the Mary Jo Cropper Family Center for Breast Care. Mrs. Cropper is a Member who lost her battle with Breast Cancer. The committee has since made the change to support the Center in honor of Mrs. Cropper.
Over the course of the last two years, the event has raised more than $200,000.
