Since its inception, the MVAT Golf Classic has raised nearly $3 million for MVAT programming and support services including, veteran and spouse workforce integration, rehabilitation, health and well being, and housing.
Building on MVAT’s belief that there should be veterans in every workforce, this year’s tournament will highlight the foundation’s signature program, Heroes Linked. Heroes Linked is a no-cost, national resource for veterans transitioning service members, and military spouses to gain career guidance and professional development support from private sector professionals they otherwise could not.
Industry diverse and geographically dispersed, Heroes Linked’s network of volunteers, share their time and career knowledge to inform and better prepare veterans for successful and fulfilling post-military careers. With more than 1,000 active profiles in the Heroes Linked network, MVAT is proud to be providing a needed service and opportunity for all those who serve.
In addition to Medal of Honor recipients and veterans, who will join the 250 expected tournament participants, MVAT is honored that the Los Angeles Police Department will once again pay tribute to American veterans and the MVAT tournament and its supporters with a helicopter flyby during the Opening Ceremony. The post-play reception will feature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, and a performance by the Golden Stars skydiving team.
The awards dinner will include a live auction and a keynote address by Medal of Honor recipient Sergeant Kyle White, USA (ret.).
