AllSouth Federal Credit Union proudly hosted its annual Soldiers and Vets Charity Golf Tournament on Thursday, October 21, at Golden Hills Golf and Country Club in Lexington, South Carolina. Thanks to the generosity of the participants, sponsors, and donors, the Soldiers and Vets 2021 Charity Golf Tournament raised $9,400 for the Big Red Barn Retreat, Blythewood, South Carolina. “It is truly an honor to be chosen by AllSouth Federal Credit Union as the recipient of the Soldiers and Vets Charity Golf Tournament. The community support for the event was outstanding and we are unbelievably humbled by all those that showed up to be a part of this wonderful event,” said Sutton Shaw, Volunteer Executive Director of the Big Red Barn Retreat.
There were 108 community supporters, veterans, and active military members who played in this year’s golf tournament. The Soldiers and Vets Charity Golf Tournament offered a special “Sponsor a Soldier” sponsorship which allowed for 13 veterans and active military members to play in the tournament at no cost to them.
Through the help of volunteers and AllSouth team members, the Soldiers and Vets Charity Golf Tournament is dedicated to bringing awareness to and supporting local military causes in the Midlands. Since 1996, AllSouth Federal Credit Union has helped raise over $316,000 in support of local military charity organizations. “We proudly carry the tradition of supporting our military. Hosting this golf tournament allows us to show our continued support for the military and local organizations. It is part of our mission to give back and help make a difference in the communities we serve,” said Bill Koehler, AllSouth Federal Credit Union President & CEO.
