Letter From the Co-Chairpersons
Dear Friends and Patriots:
We are honored by the many who have participated in our Tee It Up for the Troops Wanakah Golf Tournament since its inception in 2017. From our host golf course and site, Wanakah Country Club, to the hundreds of Western New York businesses and individuals who have annually stepped up as tournament sponsors and the legion of volunteers who work tirelessly to make sure this event gets bigger and better, we are grateful for the wide-ranging community support.
Yet as we all aware, 2020 is a much different year than any other in this tournament’s history, as well as in our nation. While the Coronavirus is changing the plans of businesses, organizations, and families, we are determined to carry on with our 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.
In this year of COVID-19 and social distancing mandates, we are dedicated to safely gathering our sponsors and participating golfers in a fun-filled round of golf that includes sending off foursomes with scheduled tee times onto Wanakah’ gorgeous course, contests of closest-to-the-pin, longest drive, and putting, along with Chef Jeff Kolbas’ fabulous food served throughout the day.
Mark the date of Monday, September 14, 2020, on your calendar and please join us for our Fourth Annual Tee It Up for the Troops Wanakah Golf Tournament. Help us help those who have given their lives in defense of our great nation.
Tom and Sarah Waring
