Second Annual Event at Jacaranda Golf Club

Presented by Hyundai and 104.3FM “The Ticket”, the 2nd Annual Special Operations Golf Tournament of South Florida (SOGT) on May 3, 2015, will be a day of great golf, food, drinks, gifts and giveaways.

And, it supports one of the top nonprofit organizations in the nation!

Hosted by the Jacaranda Golf Club in Plantation, FL, players will hit the links and raise funds for the Tampa-based Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF). The SOWF ensures full funding for college for the sons and daughters of U.S. Special Operations Forces military personnel of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps who lose their lives in the line of duty.

This year’s tournament features a premier automotive presence, vehicle displays, lunch by Hurricane Grill & Wings, a Special Operations display, a tribute to the military and on-course contests, including one of four hole-in-one opportunities for a 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan, player gift bags, raffle prizes, auction, and awards dinner by Jacaranda’s excellent chefs.

Additionally, the two winners from The Special Operations Golf Tournament of South Florida will earn an all-expenses paid trip to compete at the Hyundai Invitational National Final in Las Vegas in October.

There, they will compete with the winners from the 49 other Hyundai Invitational tournaments for a shot to join the PGA champions at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii.

SOWF Executive Director, Steven McLeary, and a scholarship recipient are scheduled to attend, and media are invited.

Founded in 1980, the SOWF ensures that the surviving children of U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations troops killed in the line of duty get a post-secondary education. The foundation has earned watchdog group Charity Navigator’s four-star rating for nine consecutive years, placing it among the top 1% of the thousands of nonprofits CN monitors. The SOWF has helped 235 scholarship recipients graduate from college and currently supports 120 students at schools across the country.

Key sponsors and supporters of the event include, Hyundai Motor America, 104.3FM “The Ticket”, Ortega Cigar Company, Hurricane Grill & Wings, the Miami Marlins, Whole Foods Market, Spirit Airlines, and more.
