We have been very impressed with Protect Our Troops and what they do for military families. The golf tournament is a way for LowVARates to show its appreciation for our valiant troops.

Protect Our Troops is running a charity golf tournament on Monday June 14th at South Mountain Golf Course in Draper, Utah to help military families across the nation.
The purpose of the tournament is to raise money for military personnel and veterans in need of home security, particularly those serving deployments.
According to Pentagon data, since September 11, 2001, well over 1 million soldiers nationwide have been deployed. Approximately 63 percent of the U.S. Army have gone to war at least once, and close to 90 percent of U.S. Marines have fought. (Found at: http://www.globalsecurity.org )
Many members of the U.S. Armed Forces leave their families for an extended period of time. The troop’s families and loved ones are left behind typically without any type of home protection.
The golf tournaments main focus is to help protect our troops and their families by providing state-of-the-art home security. These troops dedicate their lives to preserving our freedoms, but no one is looking out for our troop’s welfare.
The tournament will start at 8 a.m. on June 14th and be a 4-man scramble format. All funds will go directly to helping military families in need.
Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place. No handicapping will be involved in the tournament; the lowest team score will win. There will also be awards given for the longest drive and closest to the hole.
There are still spots available in the tournament. The price per foursome/team is $400. To play in the tournament contact Craig at: PR(at)LowVARates(dot)com or call 801-341-7048.
After the tournament, LowVARates.com will sponsor a post tournament raffle and auction. Many corporations have donated gift cards and items to support the golf tournament.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided to all sponsors and participants in the golf tournament.
