The Volunteers of America Classic returns to The Colony, TX June 28 – July 4, 2021 with top LPGA professionals competing for a $1.5 million purse playing Old American Golf Club at Golf Clubs at The Tribute. Brookshire Grocery Company and the #VOAClassic have partnered together to not only create a memorable experience for players and spectators, but also to execute impactful programming for female veterans.
The PGA Hope Female Veterans clinic presented by Brookshire’s, taking place, Tuesday, June 29, will kick off a 6-week series of programming to introduce golf to female veterans to enhance their physical, social, and mental well-being. The veterans will learn from PGA professionals trained in adaptive golf and military cultural competency, in addition to the opportunity to engage with LPGA Tour players. Brookshire’s will provide a new putter to all participants allowing them to continue growing their game long after the series is finished.
“Brookshire’s is proud to partner with PGA Hope and the Volunteers of America Classic to create an impactful experience for veterans,” said Trent Brookshire, Chief Operating Officer for Brookshire Grocery Company. “This partnership is all about expressing our gratitude for everything these veterans have done to protect and serve our country. Honoring veterans for their incredible bravery and sacrifices is very important to BGC.”
Wednesday, June 30 the event will host its Official Pro-Am. Participants will try their hand at a hole-in-one on #11 to win free groceries for a year provided by Brookshire’s. In addition, Brookshire’s is providing all fruit and snacks for players and volunteers. There will be 4 snack stations throughout the course all week keeping players fueled. Spectators can expect to see the Brookshire’s brand present throughout the course and will be able to take photos with The Big Grocery Cart at Brookshire’s activation located inside the admissions entrance.
