COX COMMUNITY GOLF TOURNAMENT NEARING – SPONSORS NEEDED TO AID INJURED MARINES
Coto de Caza, CA (January 27, 2009) – Fleets of Humvees lining the street, helicopters buzzing the greens and drill instructors providing their signature brand of encouragement. This is clearly not standard issue at the exclusive Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club, yet on Monday, March 9, patriotism will soar as high as the longest drive at the Cox Community Golf Tournament.
Marking its third consecutive year, this extraordinary event has raised more than $100,000 for the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund (IMSFF), since its inception. Hosting a community of heroes on an unforgettable day of golf, Cox Communications is committed to serving not only its family of loyal customers, but countless others in need. Despite challenging economic times, the company’s charitable foundation, Cox Cares, is actively recruiting golfers and sponsors to rally for the red, white and blue, while making this year’s tournament the most successful yet.
Honoring today’s true heroes, while giving supporters the chance to test their skills, this golf event will exude a distinct Marine Corps Boot Camp theme. Golfers on each of two Robert Trent Jones Jr. championship courses develop a first-hand appreciation for the U.S. Marines and their service through boot camp-style activities, including push-ups, jumping jacks, MRE tastings and much more.
To make a significant difference in the life of an injured Marine and his or her family, individual golfers can register online for $325, foursomes for $1,300, and dinner guests for $100. Sponsorship packages are also available and range from $500 to $20,000, each offering a variety of publicity benefits based on the level of financial commitment. Be faithful to those who serve and sign-up today by visiting www.cox-cares.org/golf or calling 949.546.3100. Vital support currently includes the commitments of: Ketel One Vodka, Baja Fresh, Motorola, the Orange County Business Journal, Sodexo and 4 Copas Tequila.
While fighting for peace, U.S. Marines serve the country with courage and commitment, yet such service can result in catastrophic injuries. Since 2004, the IMSFF has been helping Marines, sailors and their families cope with the financial hardship they face on the road to recovery. For complete details on the IMSFF, visit http://www.semperfifund.org/.
Cox Communications believes that without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community. That is why it created the 501(c)(3) non-profit Cox Cares and has donated nearly $400,000 to more than 95 local non-profit organizations since 2000.
Cox Cares gives back to Orange County by supporting local programs that offer invaluable services to those who need them most. Dedicated to enriching the fabric of the community it serves, Cox Cares targets the needs of youth and seniors, while promoting social issues, art, science and technology. Through in-kind and direct cash support, Cox Communications’ annual contributions exceed $7 million, much of which stems from 1,000 local employees who serve dedicated customers. Cox Communications is not simply a trusted partner in business, but also a partner in building a proud community.
