Armed Forces Day weekend traditionally marks the Nine Line Foundation’s Annual 5K/10K Run for the Wounded, our biggest fundraising event of the year. This year, we were honored to receive the support of THREE fundraising events over the course of Friday, May 17th and Saturday, May 18th, and, with the support of individuals (like you!), we were able to raise over $167,000 for our Veterans Village initiative!
2019 Holes Fore Heroes Golf Tournament
Nine Line Foundation was honored to be the recipient of the Annual Holes Fore Heroes Golf Tournament for the 2nd year in a row. In partnership with the Coastal Georgia Apartment Association, and a resounding support from the Low Country community, $9,000 was raised for homeless veterans!
We are so appreciative of the continued support of the CGAA, as well as the Josh Reddick Foundation, our breakfast sponsor for the tournament!
1st Annual Nine Line Foundation Benefit Dinner
Our first annual Nine Line Foundation benefit dinner was a rousing success, in large part to our wonderful MC and auctioneer extraordinaire, Nine Line Apparel’s own Matthew Lyda, and with many, many thanks to everyone who shared their evening with us – and to the special folks who flew in to make celebrity appearances throughout the weekend -“The Undertaker”, Dustin Rhodes (Goldust), John Tiegen, Chad Prather, Graham Allen and Brett Meyers.
We’re also very, very grateful to a wonderful local businessman, Paul Thigpen, who really put his checkbook to good use and has been a wonderful supporter of Nine Line Foundation!
We raised $38,750 from the raffle / auction prizes donated for the evening’s event!
6th Annual 5K/10K Run for the Wounded
Year over year, our largest annual fundraising event, our Annual Run for the Wounded, has continued to to grow in participation, awareness, and funds raised for our veterans. This year, we are thrilled to announce our most successful run to date – we raised $119,817 for our Veterans Village initiative!
We were honored to have special guests John “Tig” Tiegen, hero of Benghazi, Georgia Representative Buddy Carter, WWE Superstar the Undertaker, WWE Superstar Goldust, internet sensation Graham Allen, and the true heroes of the evening, MAJ Edward Flip Klein and SSG Chaz Allen.
