Domain Industry Golfers Invited to Tee Up for Wounded Veterans at SoCal Charity Golf Tournament Next Month

Last week I told you about former Escrow.com President Brandon Abbey returning to the domain industry with Payoneer. During his time at Escrow.com, in addition to running a highly regarded company, Brandon was known for a key role he played in helping to raise more than a  million dollars for wounded U.S. military veterans through an annual charity golf tournament in southern California (where Escrow.com was headquartered prior to the new ownership's recent relocation of the company to San Francisco).   

I'm pleased to tell you that as President of Orange County Supports Our Troops (a registered 501(c)3 charity), Brandon will continue  to help stage the Semper Fi/America’s Fund Charity Golf Tournament to raise funds and awareness of the Semper Fi Fund and the associated America’s Fund Charity. The 2016 event is coming up Monday, November 14th at Orange County's Coto De Caza Golf & Racquet Club with a registration deadline of November 7th. Brandon would like to see as many domain industry golfers as possible sign up to play and support the effort. 

Brandon told us, "This lively and inspiring day includes golf, hearty refreshments and inspiring guest speakers with silent and live auctions in a gorgeous country club setting. Semper Fi/America’s Fund provides immediate assistance and continuous support for the injured heroes who have served our country in all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. The primary goal is to give back to those who selflessly support, protect and serve our country."

Abbey added, "The last four tournaments raised over 1 million dollars in donations. With 100% of the proceeds given back to this 501(c)(3) nonprofit A+ rated charity, your support makes an enormous impact and provides financial relief to injured and critically ill service members throughout the Southern California area. Since 2004, the Semper Fi Fund has issued over 44,000 grants totaling more than $63 million to 8,000 heroes and their families."

To sponsor, donate, sign up or volunteer for this All-American tribute to our military heroes, you can visit the OC Support Our Troops website at www.ocsot.com. You can also direct any question you may have be emailing team@ocsot.com or calling (949) 274-5654.
