Welcome to Tee It Up for the Troops Wanakah – Buffalo, NY
Since 2017, the Membership and Organizing Committee at Wanakah Country Club is proud to have hosted four Tee It Up for the Troops Wanakah golf events in the great state of New York, in support of its mission to serve veterans, active military, and their families. Through the passionate efforts of the club members, management, a dedicated team of volunteers, and a loyal group of Western New York sponsors, we are proud of the mighty tradition that has been developed at Wanakah. We are especially excited this year to carry out our 5TH-ANNIVERSARY tournament out of respect and appreciation for active duty and retired military members and their families, fellow patriots, and honored wounded warriors who have given their lives in the defense of our freedoms.
Tee It Up for the Troops’ mission is to honor, remember, respect, and support all those who serve(d) in the Armed Forces for this great nation.
Tee It Up for the Troops is a national non-profit organization that serves U.S. military veterans and their families. Based in Minnesota, Tee It Up for the Troops inspires communities across the country to organize golf events and raise funds for partnering veteran service organizations that deliver critically needed services to military families.
When a military member comes home, they face a variety of challenges. Unfortunately, many of those challenges are connected and spread into other parts of their life. Addressing one area many times is not enough. That is why Tee It Up for the Troops has six pillars of support including Housing and Homelessness, Family and Caregiver Support, PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment, Suicide Prevention, Employment, and Golf and Sports Rehabilitation. By offering support for all these critical areas of need, we work to provide comprehensive assistance for veterans in all areas of their life. This support for our American heroes helps them get back on course and gives them the best chance of success once they have come home.
Also, through our REUNION initiative, Tee It Up for the Troops has reunited more than 400 combat veterans who were separated due to battlefield injuries or changes in rehabilitation status. Through these reunions, participants enhance their transition process into productive and fulfilling civilian lifestyles.
Established in 2005, Tee It Up for the Troops has hosted over 565 events in more than 40 states and has donated over $11 million impacting more than 220,000 American heroes. Tee It Up for the Troops considers it a privilege to honor, remember, respect, honor and support all those who serve(d) in the Armed Forces for this great nation!
