Port St. Lucie, FL (PRWEB) September 26, 2011
The Keiser University College of Golf is proud to acknowledge more than two dozen of its students for their volunteer work during the recent 5th Annual Patriot Golf Day Weekend at PGA Village in Port St. Lucie. During the recent Labor Day weekend, 28 students from Keiser University Golf School assisted during the opening ceremonies as more than 1,000 attendees came together at the PGA Village to share the good will of golf.
Patriot Golf Day events were held at more than 4,400 registered PGA facilities nationwide to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to families of military veterans disabled or killed in action, and is supported by The PGA of America and U.S. Golf Association.
"The students' involvement was instrumental in the success of the Patriot Golf Day event in Port St. Lucie, and PGA Senior Director for Player Development Bob Baldassari expressed his sincere thanks for their help. We are very proud of our students for their dedication to the game and to their selfless commitment to the brave men and women, and their families, of our United States Armed Forces. Without their daily sacrifice at home and overseas, we would all be less safe, less secure and less free to enjoy the many liberties we all too often take for granted," says John McMurry, vice president of Keiser University College of Golf.
Keiser University College of Golf is a member of the National Collegiate Club Golf Association (NCCGA), a governing body that coordinates and regulates competition between collegiate club golf teams. Membership within NCCGA allows students of the golf program an opportunity interact and compete on local, regional and national levels with others students who are equally committed to the tradition and history of the game.
