Grateful to Serve Our Veterans

Grateful to Serve Our Veterans

What brought motorcycle riders, bagpipers, senators, Miss North Carolina, golfers, and Smithfield’s together? More than 280 people tee’ed-off during the 5th annual Tee-Off for the Troops Golf Classic on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at the Bentwinds Country Club in Fuquay-Varina, NC. Held in recognition of Veterans Day, the golf classic strives to recognize and honor veterans, and to raise funds that enable Military Missions in Action (MMIA) to complete its projects and programs that support veterans with disabilities as well as active-duty veterans. It does this more successfully every year. Grateful to support this cause, the Morrisville, NC location of Smithfield's Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q®/SCNB Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q® donated 180 lunches for this captain’s choice event that is so much more than a golf tournament. Tournament play opened each day with a meaningful ceremony. The two-day event included senatorial keynote speakers, the Legion Motorcycle Riders, pageant queens, and a local TV weather personality. During an emotional Fallen Soldier Ceremony on day two, a U.S. Army Color Guard and Rifle Team posted the colors and gave a 21 gun salute. The event is growing through the desire of MMIA, its volunteers, sponsors, and participants to assist disabled veterans. Next year may just be bigger, so don’t miss out.
