UPDATE: The Putts for Purple Hearts was a huge success! The event raised over $7,000 for the Semper Fi Fund. One particular raffle item – Lola the Bulldog – was the highlight of the tournament. Lola brought in $2,000 for the event and is now the official Putts for Purple Hearts mascot!
Thank you Ashley and everyone who attended the Putts for Purple Hearts event for your dedication to “Serving Those Who Preserve Our Freedom!”
