A percentage of Patriot Pack proceeds will be donated to support families of fallen and wounded service men and women
(Overland Park, KS) - Bushnell Outdoor Products, makers of the #1 laser rangefinder on the PGA Tour, today announced its continued support of the Folds of Honor Foundation. Two new Patriot Packs have been added to Bushnell's 2012 lineup, which will continue to aid the foundation's fundraising efforts by providing a percentage of every 2012 sale of the Bushnell Patriot Pack. Since the inception of the Patriot Packs, Bushnell has donated nearly $300,000 to the foundation.
As the special edition Patriot Packs continue to be a favorite among golfers, Bushnell has introduced two new packs for 2012. The Tour V2 Patriot Pack comes equipped with a Tour V2 laser rangefinder, limited edition red Folds of Honor golf tees, exclusive orange Bushnell Golf branded golf tees, a blue silicone SKINZ, Clip & Go Mount for either bag or cart, premium carrying case and extra battery at a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $299. Also updated for 2012, the Tour V2 Slope Edition Patriot Pack features a Tour V2 Slope Edition laser rangefinder, limited edition red Folds of Honor golf tees, exclusive orange Bushnell Golf branded golf tees, a red silicone SKINZ, Clip & Go Mount for either bag or cart, premium carrying case and extra battery at a manufacturer's suggested retail price $399 (MSRP).
The Tour V2 incorporates the same "PinSeeker" technology that has made Bushnell products the #1 rangefinder on the PGA Tour. Both Tournament and Slope Editions feature golf-grip touch points for enhanced feel and stability, and is capable of ranging up to 300 yards to the flag stick with incredible +/- one yard accuracy.
For each sale of the Tour V2 and/or Tour V2 Slope Edition Patriot Packs, Bushnell will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Folds of Honor Foundation (FHF), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a mission to empower deserving military families with educational support and opportunities. Founded in 2007 by PGA Golf Professional Dan Rooney, a Major in the Air National Guard and a decorated military aviator, the FHF provides post-secondary educational scholarships to the spouses and children of service members killed as a result of their military service to the United States. To date, more than 2,600 scholarships have been awarded by FHF.
"After witnessing the continued generosity of the golfing industry and golfers all across the United States through their purchases of special edition Bushnell Patriot Packs, we have elected to continue our support of the Folds of Honor Foundation and the extraordinary mission they serve in helping the families of the men and women who defend our great country," said Blake Lipham, President and CEO of Bushnell. "Everyone at Bushnell is proud to support their efforts through the Patriot Pack and additional programs on the hunting/shooting side of our business, and we consider it an honor to be continuing our support of this extremely worthy cause."
The FHF is the beneficiary of Patriot Golf Day, a joint initiative of The PGA of America and the United States Golf Association that encourages golfers across the country to add at least $1 to their greens fees over the Labor Day weekend. Sparked by the vision and dedication of Rooney, Patriot Golf Day has become the largest grassroots golf platform in the country and has raised more than $12.8 million in just five years with the support of golfers across the country.
"Bushnell continues to impress us with their dedication and willingness to support the Folds of Honor Foundation year after year," said Rooney. "This partnership has evolved to offer consumers a great product with exclusive items in the Golf Patriot Pack, and the relationship now expands into the hunting segment of their business. What continually amazes me is the response from golfers and hunters, and their generosity in supporting the families of fallen or wounded service members."
Bushnell, the #1 choice of professional golfers, offers a full range of rangefinders, which continue to change and improve the way golfers assess distances, ultimately improving performance.
