On May 13th-15th, three Texas cities will be duking it out on the fabulous East Texas track that is Pine Dunes in Frankston, TX. The weekend is not only about the golf, though. As with any Refuge event, the charity aspect is critical. This year, each team will be dedicating 1/3rd of any raised funds to a city-specific charity of their choosing.
- EDIT - The captains have decided to combine our donations into one to maximize the value of the donation. The 2022 NLU Texas Cup will benefit the Austin Firefighters Relief and Outreach Fund (afrof.org).
There’s definitely a personal connection here. My wife is a firefighter here in Austin, and together we’ve been heavily involved in fundraising for both AFROF and other firefighter-related organizations. We’re blessed in that she’s never gotten seriously hurt, but we’ve unfortunately had brothers and sisters come down with serious diseases and injuries from their time on the force, and AFROF has been absolutely indispensable in getting some financial relief to those families. While insurance may cover the medical bits, the kids still need to eat, and house payment still needs to be made, and the lights still have to stay on. I can also personally vouch for the leadership at AFROF - the money donated goes straight into either operating the charity, or directly into the hands of the families they’re helping. Thank you all for your donations this year.
