U.S. Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon speaks at the Valencia Country Club about the Birdies for the Brave fundraiser Tuesday morning.

 
Valencia Country Club officials named U.S. Rep. Howard P. “Buck” McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, honorary chairman of Birdies for the Brave, a golf tournament fundraiser held Nov. 24 at the country club as part of a greater national military outreach program supporting the brave men and women in uniform and their families. 

Six military charities will benefit from the Birdies for the Brave event and will be well supported with the strong backing of the PGA Tour and Heritage Golf Group, McKeon said.

“Birdies for the Brave is far more than just a fund raiser, it directly impacts military families and encapsulates the hearts of Americans and the gratitude they feel towards our military personnel,” McKeon said.

Birdies for the Brave is part of a strategic alliance between the Professional Golf Association Tour and Heritage Golf Group.

Participants will meet military personnel representing the charity. The dinner following the golf tournament will include short speeches from soldiers who were stationed in the Middle East and information about the Birdies for the Brave.

“The funds raised help to support our military families and the event sends a very clear message to our troops that they’re supported and appreciated,” said Kristi Cummings, board member of the Naval Special Warfare Foundation.  
 
Proceeds raised at Heritage Collection of Clubs and TPC Network Properties across the country will benefit six outstanding B4B homefront groups that directly serve military men and women and their families.
