Strait’s Sixth Annual Vaqueros Del Mar Invitational Golf Tournament Benefits David Feherty’s Charity

(BOERNE, TEXAS) — Country music legend George Strait and Texas businessman Tom Cusick hosted their sixth annual Vaqueros del Mar Invitational golf event at Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort, October 26-29, which raised $1.1 million for Feherty’s Troops First Foundation. This annual event has now raised in excess of $3 million for military personnel wounded in action since 2012.

Strait and Cusick, both joint owners of the Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort in Boerne, Texas, founded the fundraiser in November 2011 to support wounded U.S. servicemen and women through David Feherty’s Troops First Foundation. The NBC sports on-course golf reporter for PGA TOUR tournaments and popular TV personality co-founded the foundation in 2008.

“We can never repay our military veterans for their dedicated service, but we hope our partnership with the Troops First Foundation can show how much we appreciate them,” said George Strait. “This marks our sixth year of supporting the wounded men and women who have served our country, and we are thrilled to have raised over $1 million, breaking last year’s record.”

The four-day celebration culminated with a golf “shootout” and a surprise appearance by PGA TOUR player, former world number one in the World Golf Rankings, and Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” (2016), Jordan Spieth. A live auction emceed by Strait and Cusick followed an incredible jam session starring the country music legend, with dinner and dancing. George Strait, Jamey Johnson, and Keith Gattis then wrapped up the event by serenading the more than 300 guests with many of their favorite songs.
