2013 USO Woodlands Classic raises $40,000 for USO Houston
The inaugural USO Woodlands Classic charity golf tournament benefited local USO service for troops and military family members

[The Woodlands, TX. (November 5, 2013)]

Even light rain showers could not dampen the spirits of the golfers who attended the inaugural USO Woodlands Classic, held on November 4th at The Woodlands Country Club (WCC). The USO Woodlands Classic, presented by Outlook Financial Group, LLC, was attended by some 100 golfers and anchored by major sponsors Kroger and RSL Contractors, LTD. The WCC Tournament Course was spectacular, as always, and there was a festive air about the event supporting the USO, our armed forces, and their families.

 

A silent auction was held which featured a bottle from the Jack Daniels Presidential Barrel, a vacation in a Colorado ski lodge, golf foursomes at private clubs, and much more.  The New York City-based USO Show Troupe performed for the guests following the tournament and helped to make the day even more special.

 

Jim Moeller, the Event Chairman, said, “We are extremely pleased with the success of the Inaugural USO Woodlands Classic.  It has been a labor of love for all of us at Outlook Financial Group, and we are looking forward to November 3, 2014, and making the 2nd Annual USO Woodlands Classic even better.” 

 

The event raised more than $40,000 in net profits, all of which directly benefits the USO’s local morale-boosting and family-strengthening services for the military community. This amount will cover the costs of USO Houston’s operations for five full weeks, during which time over 4,000 troops and military family members will be served at our USO Centers and at events.

 

“This inaugural event exceeded our expectations! The funds raised from this charity golf tournament will make a significant impact toward lifting the spirits of our troops and their families here in Greater Houston. We look forward to the 2nd Annual USO Woodlands Classic!” – Liz Vallette, Director, USO Houston.
