Eagle Battalion Booster Club to Host Charity Golf Event in Support of the Army JROTC Program

Eagle Battalion Charity Golf Event on Oct 9, 2019. All proceeds to benefit the only Army JROTC program in Montgomery County, MD. Event includes many prize opportunities.

Laytonsville, MD, June 28, 2019 --(PR.com)-- The Eagle Battalion Booster Club, a 501(c)3 formed to support the only Army JROTC program in Montgomery County, MD, announced their first Annual Charity Golf event to be held on Wednesday, October 9 at Blue Mash Golf Course in Laytonsville, Maryland.

The Army JROTC program is funded mostly by fundraising. The Eagle Battalion Booster Club has committed to taking the fundraising out of the hands of the cadets to allow them to be students, instead of sales people. Funds raised will be used for community service projects; local, regional and national competition participation; uniforms; after school activities; field trips; leadership programs; the annual military ball; and other cadet initiatives.

The organization welcomes any and all businesses to participate and sponsor the event. The event is expected to draw about 130 or more golfers and the goal is to make this first annual event a very memorable experience for all that are involved. Corporate, individual, and team sponsorship opportunities are available. Donations are welcomed and very much appreciated.

The format is a four-player Scramble with the event day check-in beginning at 7:30 am. Prizes include Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin contest and to kickoff the event, a Mega Putt contest at 8:45 am. There will be a number of prize opportunities available.

There is an early bird discount until August 31, 2019. For more information about the tournament, including online registration and sponsorships, please visit the event website at www.eaglebattaliongolf.com or the organization’s main website at www.mhsjrotcboosterclub.org.

The mission of the JROTC program is "to motivate young people to be better citizens." In following the mission of the JROTC program, the Eagle Battalion Booster Club's mission is "to promote the JROTC program and cadets through a positive presence in the community and provide funding for the betterment of the program." The JROTC program has a proven record of making a substantial difference in students, the school and the community.

The statistics from the U.S. Army JROTC national page indicate that the program increases attendance and graduation rates, reduces the dropout rate and increases the overall GPA to almost 3.0 compared to the average of 2.72. In addition, the JROTC program is very engaged in community activities with volunteering and will exceed their SSL (student service learning) hour requirements.

The Eagle Battalion Booster Club and the Army JROTC cadets would be honored if you would join them for a great day of golf.
