The winner of the 2012 Victory Motorcycle Raffle was drawn on Friday, December 9th at 10 a.m. at the National Office for Tee it up for the Troops. The winner is Jon Vee from Fairbault, MN. Jon is a Golf Pro at Faribault Country Club and was very excited to be picked as the winner. Congratulations to Jon and thank you to everyone that purchased a raffle ticket in support of Tee it up for the Troops.
This past weekend a group of volunteers from TDS, a national TIUFTT event sponsor, and Tee it up for the Troops went shopping for items for care packages. They put together special Ziploc baggies for soldiers plus and additional box or two for each location that contained an assortment of goodies such as games, magazines, DVDs, personal care items, toys and small gifts for the local children, as well as other surprise holiday items.
Another group of volunteers baked 3,500+ cookies. The cookies are being sent to three different units in Afghanistan (total of 135 soldiers) along with the care packages. There will also be a large batch of cookies delivered to the MAC-V house at the VA hospital in Minneapolis.
TDS chose to do this as way to show their support, care and concern for each member of the troops. The message that TDS wishes to convey to each soldier is, “God bless all of you! Hope this makes the holidays a little brighter! You are not forgotten!”
