Birdie’s for the Brave (B4B) is a 501(c)(3) Foundation created by the PGA Tour Charity Group. B4B’s purpose is to support our wounded military personnel, as well as those that gave their all, in defense of our country, in the war on terrorism, including their families.  Please show your gratitude for these courageous individuals by marking your calendar for a fund raising golfing extravaganza!  The weekend events will be held at the TPC of  Tampa Bay on Lutz Lake Fern Road in North Tampa, near the Veteran’s Expressway. 

The PGA Tour, all of the TPC’s and Heritage Golf Courses across the country have teamed up with the Birdies for the Brave (B4B) program.  The proceeds benefit 6 national military charities:  Wounded Warrior Project, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Navy SEAL Foundation, Operation Home Front, Homes for Our Troops, and United Through Reading. Also a percentage of the proceeds will be distributed amongst local Tampa Bay Veteran Foundations.  

Tampa Bay TPC, on behalf of B4B, is asking the entire Tampa Bay community to show their appreciation by providing at least one foursome to represent their club competing for a perpetual crystal trophy, and of course, "bragging rights". Foursomes are filling up fast.  The golfing event will be capped at 100 golfers to ensure they will have the utmost attention for the day.  If you are unable to play, please consider sponsoring an amputee veteran who would love to play at the TPC of Tampa Bay for this event.   

Saturday Night's Kick-Off Party will be held overlooking the beautiful landscape of the 18th Fairway. Catered food, beverages, live music, dancing, and a silent auction are included in the golf packages or $30 a ticket for civilians and $15 for active and retired military and dependents. Tickets at the door are $40.  Bring your friends for a fun filled evening to mingle with some of the PGA Professionals and military's finest.
