Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in the Desert Region is teeing up once again as host for its annual Charity Golf Tournament at Indian Wells Country Club—to demonstrate our continued support for a charity that provides critical services to the men and women who have served in our military.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that provides support to the families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat operations. Last year the tournament raised an impressive $20,000 and this year’s sights are set even higher.

To ace this vital campaign, we invite sponsorship from Wounded Warrior Vets, friends, family, golfers and of course, our local desert businesses. Participation from this community of neighbors and friends will ensure that we have another successful tournament and, most importantly, that we are able make a significant contribution to the Wounded Warrior Project.

“The support we have already received from our partners in the business sector is touching,” said Patti Rollins, branch manager of the Palm Desert and Indian Wells offices. “I think it is important to mention them here as we go along: PGA Tour SuperStore, Burgess North American, Global Environment Consultants, Inc., American Home Shield, Certified Mold Remediation Specialists, First Capital Mortgage, KXPS Money Radio and Merrill Corporation. Our collective goal this year is to exceed the $20,000 we donated in 2013 to the Wounded Warrior Project with our sights set on $25,000 for this year’s contribution.”

Patti Rollins will again be spearheading the event, with additional support from the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage management team of Tom Ogle and Steve Waters and Diane Busch, an independent sales associate as auction chair. Sponsorship levels range from $500 to $3000, and are structured to increase the profiles of businesses within community. The event will feature an afternoon golf tournament followed by a dinner party with live entertainment plus silent and live auctions. The $175 entry fee for players includes an afternoon of golf, complete with lunch and a cart, and a fun-filled evening. We also welcome non-golfers waiting at the 19th hole; tickets to attend the tournament and enjoy dinner are available this year at $60 per person.

Coldwell Banker is pleased to welcome back Fred “The Hammer” Williamson, former American Football League defensive back, AFL All-Star, actor, director, producer and national spokesperson for Wounded Warrior Project, who will once again serve as Honorary Chairman and Master of Ceremonies.

“This Charity Golf Tournament is a very special way to ‘pay-it-forward’ to the men and women who serve our country,” added Jamie Duran, President of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Orange County and Desert Region. “We hope that local businesses, golfers and grateful community members across the Desert Region and throughout Southern California will show their respect and support for our Wounded Warriors by becoming sponsors, players and tournament attendees.”
