PORTSMOUTH, NH (9/15/20) – The Service CU Impact Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit charity arm of Service Credit Union, announces it has raised nearly $250,000 in its inaugural Annual Charity Golf Classic.
The tournament was held on Tuesday, September 1 to benefit military families and veterans. The foundation is partnering with the Robert Irvine Foundation, whose mission supports service members, veterans, and their family members that serve alongside them through health and wellness programs. A portion of the monies raised from the tournament will be directed to New Hampshire-based veterans’ charities.
The Robert Irvine Foundation’s grants program has benefitted the USO-Metro, Valor Service Dogs, Warrior Reunion Foundation, Gary Sinese Foundation, TAPS – Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation and IM Able among other organizations and individuals in need.
“The Robert Irvine Foundation is honored to be a recipient of the Service CU Impact Foundation’s Inaugural Charity Golf Classic. It is because of the generosity of companies like Service Credit Union and their Foundation that we are able to continue the crucial, life-changing work of helping our selfless protectors and their families,” said the Robert Irvine Foundation’s founder, Chef Robert Irvine. “We are grateful of the support of Service Credit Union and their amazing team along with all of the participants who came together to make this inaugural event a great success.”
Irvine, a 16-year British Navy veteran and world-class chef pioneered a new genre of television programming with Dinner: Impossible and Restaurant: Impossible, which ran for a combined 20 seasons and over 260 episodes. Today, he is a tireless supporter of veterans and those who defend our freedom.
