Sports legends and corporate executives will team up November 14 – 17 to raise money for the National Navy Seal Museum.
The 24th Annual Legends Invitational will be played at Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Spanish Bay. The Invitational series features NFL greats and other sports legends playing with corporate executives to raise funds for charity. This year’s cause is the National Navy UDT-Seal museum, which is dedicated to preserving the history of the organization while honoring the fallen at the SEAL Memorial. The organization also cares for warrior families through their Trident House.
Navy SEAL teams will take part in tactical demonstrations during the event, including parachuting, and rappelling from helicopters.
It looks like a fun outing and is certainly a worthy cause. As many of you know, Mrs. GolfBlogger is a veteran, and we support military causes whenever possible.
