20th ACU Turkey Shoot raises over $30k for JBLM Charities
JBLM, WA – November 12th, 2020
On November 6, 2020 The ACU Foundation raised over $30,000 for numerous charities on Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) through the annual charity golf tournament, Turkey Shoot. In it’s 20th Anniversary year it was also the initial fundraiser for ACU’s Non-Profit, the ACU Foundation. Many local businesses and over 115 golfers, including guest soldiers, participated to help raise the funds. Even with the COVID safety precautions and social distancing, the spirit of giving and appreciation for our military was high.
The tournament originally started to get Santa’s Castle off the ground. Santa’s Castle is a local charity that assists soldiers in need by providing Christmas presents for them to give to their families. Later, the tournament was expanded to support other charities on JBLM.
Ken Leonard has been there from the beginning and shared the history and meaning of the tournament as well as his commitment to give back to our soldiers. The ACU Foundation and Ken (CEO) are honored to contribute to the morale and welfare of our military.
