(SOUTHERN PINES, N.C.) - Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation announced today Golf Pride celebrated another year of its partnership with the Folds of Honor Foundation and Patriot Golf Day by donating $10,000 from proceeds earned through Patriot grip sales. The check was presented to Major Ed Pulido, Vice President of the Folds of Honor Foundation, last week at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla.
"Golf Pride is proud to continue our partnership with the Folds of Honor Foundation in supporting the families of our soldiers," said Jeff Fiorini, president of Eaton's Golf Grip Division. "To date, Golf Pride has donated more than $40,000 in donations and product to support the Folds of Honor Foundation and related events."
Throughout the partnership, Golf Pride has participated in a number of Patriot Golf Day events to support the Folds of Honor Foundation and promote the benefits of regripping. Fans can also purchase the Patriot, a specially-designed red, white and blue all-rubber grip with a portion of the proceeds from every grip sold benefiting the Folds of Honor Foundation. The Patriot grip is available nationwide, wherever regripping is offered. For more information on where to find the Patriot grip, visit www.golfpride.com.
