About Folds of Honor
More than one million dependents have been affected by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and 85 percent of them do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Folds of Honor, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a mission to empower deserving military families with support and opportunities, is helping fill that gap by providing educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation.

Event Background
This is an exclusive, invitation-only Golf Tournament celebrating our nation’s heroes over Memorial Day, May 27th. Folds of Honor Foundation and The Patriot Golf Course co-host this incredible event, attended by Champions Tour, PGA and LPGA Professionals, top Military golfers from across the country, and a host of celebrities.

The Gala and Concert
On the evening of Memorial Day, Patriot Cup participants, spouses and guests come together for a black tie gala at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. During the gala, Major Dan Rooney presents the Corporal Brock Bucklin Patriot Award to an individual who has gone above the call of duty to serve our nation’s heroes. Additionally, a scholarship recipient shares his/her personal story to honor the special hero he/she cherishes.

Following the gala, guests move to “The Joint” at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino for an exciting concert featuring a world-class entertainer. Previous performers included Vince Gill in 2010, Darius Rucker in 2011 and Rascal Flatts in 2012.
