We are pleased to be hosting our 6th annual golf tournament to benefit both the Fisher House Southern California and the GLAC AUSA Family Programs initiatives that support local Soldiers, Veterans and their families.
The GLAC AUSA Liberty Mutual Invitational Golf Tournament is an opportunity to honor the service and sacrifices of our military and their families, while enjoying a great round of golf. We are really pleased that many of our local Soldiers and Wounded Warriors participate in the tournament through generous donations from supporters like you. So even if you don’t play yourself – you can still donate a round of golf for one of these heroes!
About the Tournament: The LIBERTY MUTUAL INSURANCE INVITATIONAL is a national series of amateur golf tournaments. Each event benefits a local charity, in our case, the Family Programs initiatives of GLAC AUSA. The program uniquely combines the prestigious tradition of the Liberty Mutual Insurance Company with the philanthropic endeavors of the local charitable organizations. It is the largest corporately sponsored amateur charity golf event in the world. In addition to Liberty Mutual, the event is sponsored nationally by TaylorMade, Adidas Golf, Polaroid, Sports Vision Eyewear, Fusion IONZ, Golf Digest and TPC Sawgrass.
Local Liberty Mutual Insurance Invitational tournaments are held throughout the country. Winners of local tournaments will be invited to compete in the National Finals to be held at TPC Sawgrass, date to be announced.
Liberty Mutual Invitational tournaments are generally scramble style competitions. The scramble format enables golfers of varying levels of skill to participate in a competitive yet enjoyable tournament. Amateur golfers will play in teams of four. Each team must have a combined USGA Handicap Index of at least 43.0. Only one player per team may have a USGA Handicap Index of 8.0 or below. This is the format used at the Liberty Mutual Invitational National Finals.
The AUSA Liberty Mutual Tournament will be held for the second year at the Westridge Golf Club. Westridge is a Par 72 course. Blue tees are 6122 yards and White tees are 5779. Westridge is a challenging local facility and just upgraded their cart fleet. Tee time is scheduled for 11:00 am with contests prior.
On the course, players will find In-N-Out Burgers, a cigar and beer bar, and plenty of food and beverages. Liberty Mutual supports this event with $50,000 in gifts and prizes for players. Our tournament is both a lot of fun and supports a great cause.
Our organization has a proven track record of taking care of our military. Our low overhead (less than 5%) and all-volunteer force, ensures that the money you donate goes directly to taking care of local Soldiers, Veterans and their families.
We are excited at the continued growth of our Family Programs initiatives – and the generosity of our donors. That growth means we can reach more and more of our military in need.
What is GLAC AUSA Family Programs doing for our local military? Every week GLAC receives calls from Soldiers or their families with desperate cries for help. They aren’t looking for a handout… just a hand. Sometimes it’s help with rent – special circumstances may have caused them to need a little help until a benefit check arrives. It could be they need help getting home for the funeral of a parent. One Soldier, whose son is battling leukemia, needed a gas card to get back and forth to the hospital. Did you know that just $500 can get a homeless vet off the street and into a month of temporary housing? That gives them an address for benefit checks, a safe place to sleep at night… and a hope for the future.
Often our support is for happier circumstances – funding a coming home event, or a unit Family Day, or a holiday party. We’ve even helped local Army running teams compete in national competitions.
Your support is the fuel that keeps GLAC AUSA Family Programs going. We need your help.
Why Fisher House? For members of our Armed Forces, retirees, veterans and their families, the Fisher House program offers shelter and support during a medical crisis. The need for a Fisher House in Long Beach is critical. Affordable temporary housing for family members is unattainable in the area and the duration of some hospitalizations at the VA Long Beach is lengthy. The Fisher House Southern California is nearing their $6,000,000 goal – let’s put them over the top! Ground breaking is set to begin this year.
The Fisher House program is a 25-year-old unique private-public partnership that supports America’s military in a time of need. This program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships military service imposes on families and, as well, meets a humanitarian need beyond that provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.
Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, the Fisher House Foundation donates “comfort homes,” built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These guest houses enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful of times–hospitalization for an illness, disease, or injury.
Currently there are 23 Fisher Houses in operation on major military medical installations and an additional 24 on VA Medical Center campuses. These homes provide great assistance to families and ensure that the guests are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment.
Annually, the Fisher House program serves more than 25,000 families, and has made available over 5.8 million days of lodging to family members since the program originated in 1990. No family pays to stay at any Fisher House.
