SIG Sauer Inc. announced that the 4th Annual 2019 SIG Sauer Charity Golf Tournament raised $70,000 for the Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) organization held August 9, 2019 at Pease Golf Course in Newington, New Hampshire. In 2019 this annual event expanded to 192 golfers that contributed to the near doubling of the monies raised for the HAVA organization.
"For over a decade, the HAVA organization has been re-integrating disabled veterans and injured military into American life through outdoor activities and the shooting sports," said Tom Taylor, chief marketing officer and executive vice president, commercial sales, SIG Sauer, Inc. "For everyone at SIG Sauer it's an honor to support this meaningful program, and contribute to continuing the services provided by HAVA that are making a difference in the lives of the men and women that fought to protect our freedoms."
HAVA is a 501(c)3 organization founded in 2007 by a group of executives from the hunting and shooting industry to help disabled veterans and injured active-duty military returning from war heal, and reintegrate back into everyday life through participation in outdoor activities. HAVA sponsors guided hunts, shooting events, and outdoor activities across the country hosting hundreds of veterans annually.
SIG Sauer is a longstanding supporter and sustaining sponsor of the HAVA organization. Annually, SIG Sauer participates in HAVA sponsored shooting and hunting events across the country benefiting hundreds of veterans, including the upcoming 7th Annual Rock Castle Family Day on September 14, 2019 at Rockcastle Shooting Sports Center in Park City, Kentucky.
