Hawley, PA – Since its original opening in 1958, Woodloch Pines, an award-winning, all-inclusive family resort located in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, has always remained committed to honoring those who serve and defend this country’s freedom, many of whom have been and continue to be loyal guests. Hence, it was a natural fit when the Pocono resort’s championship golf course, Woodloch Springs, teamed up with Folds of Honor five years ago to host an annual golf tournament. The nonprofit organization provides educational scholarships to families of military men and women who have fallen or been disabled while on active duty in the United States Armed Forces. Since its inception, Folds of Honor has awarded nearly 16,000 educational scholarships to military families.
On Monday, July 9th, Woodloch Springs will host the fifth annual Folds of Honor Golf Classic. The tournament kicks off with a shotgun start at 11:30 AM, and the $145 cost per golfer includes: golf fees, cocktail hour, dinner featuring a military keynote speaker and a special memorial gift. To date, the Folds of Honor Golf Classic has raised over $60,000 to support families in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
In addition to this year’s annual golf tournament, the family resort is excited to announce that it will host its first-ever Folds of Honor Weekend from November 2-4, 2018 to further support the foundation and its efforts with a portion of Woodloch’s revenue being donated. During Folds of Honor Weekend, guests can look forward to:
In addition to the activities mentioned above, on the evening of Sunday, November 4th, Woodloch will host its “A Night of Heroes” event to further benefit Folds of Honor. The cocktail party will feature a special Folds of Honor guest speaker, and guests can enjoy tasting stations, a cash bar and silent auction and raffle.
“Our goal is to provide scholarship opportunities for the children and spouses of our local heroes. Supporting this event helps to ensure that their legacy lives on. May we never forget that freedom isn’t free! We hugely appreciate the support of everyone involved in this tournament as they continue to honor all who have given the ultimate sacrifice in our community,” remarked John Pillar, PGA, Director of Golf at Woodloch Springs.
