Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 04, 2013
When he tees off at this year's Champions Tour this month, pro golfer Andrew Magee will be sporting a new look on the links: head-to-toe support for the Semper Fi Fund. By wearing their logo on his gear, Magee makes more than a fashion statement: he raises critical awareness for the injured veteran non-profit, and the vital services they provide.
Magee was introduced to Semper Fi Fund through Bob Parsons, founder of GoDaddy.com, a Marine Corps veteran, and an ardent supporter of the organization. When Magee learned of the critical work they were doing providing financial assistance to injured veterans and their families, he was eager to help.
So this year, thanks to a generous sponsorship funded by the Bob and Renee Parsons Foundation, the golfer will don the Semper Fi Fund logo on his hat, shirt and bag for all PGA Champions Tour events, increasing the charity’s visibility and introducing their mission to a new audience.
"We're incredibly thankful for Andrew Magee and his decision to support our organization on the PGA tour,” said Karen Guenther, Semper Fi Fund Founder and CEO. “Given the important role sport can play in the recovery of our injured veterans, we feel this is a particularly well-suited sponsorship, and wish Mr. Magee the best of luck throughout the Champions Tour season."
In addition to the support Magee will provide on the fairway, the Bob and Renee Parsons Foundation has agreed to match the pro golfer's total 2013 Champions Tour earnings with an equal donation to Semper Fi Fund. Parsons, through GoDaddy.com and the Bob and Renee Parsons Foundation, has previously partnered with celebrity NASCAR drivers Danica Patrick and Mark Martin to increase visibility and donations for the Semper Fi Fund.
Guenther continued, “Bob Parsons continues to be an exceptional advocate for the Semper Fi Fund and our veterans in need, both through the incredible patronage of the Bob and Renee Parsons Foundation and his personal outreach to Mr. Magee and others. His efforts exemplify the strength of support for our wounded warriors, among fellow veterans and within the community at large.”
