CMC Honors the Folds of Honor Foundation


We are less than 3 weeks away from our 4th Annual Folds of Honor Foundation Golf Tournament at beautiful McCormick Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale on April 7, 2013. We have a lot of exciting things going on this year so you don’t want to miss out. We still have sponsorships and spots available for our event but you will want to hurry because they are filling up fast. All participants in this year’s event will receive a nice Folds of Honor Foundation golf shirt and numerous other gifts totaling more than $75. In addition to all of the gifts, your entry fee includes golf, range balls, lunch, raffle, and silent auction. There will be an awards ceremony following the tournament that will feature our guest speakers Major Ed Pulido, Vice President, Director of Public Relations for the Folds of Honor Foundation and Tony Biata, PGA and Director of Patriot Day Golf. We will have numerous veterans and active military present so I encourage to come out and honor each and every one of them and thank them for their sacrifice.

We are also honored to have Mila Bordelon and her 2 children, Jacob and Johanna in attendance at our event. Mila’s husband, Army 1st Sergeant Michael Bordelon was on his 2nd tour of duty in Mosul, Iraq on April 25, 2005 when his vehicle was struck by a suicide bomber driving another vehicle. The blast set the Humvee ablaze, and even though he was seriously wounded, Sergeant Bordelon remained in the vehicle to assist those aboard in getting to safety. He was the last to leave and suffered multiple internal injuries along with 3rd degree burns over much of his body. Once he was stabilized, he was flown to Brooke Army Medical Hospital in San Antonio, Tx, where he past away from his wounds on May 10, 2005. Sergeant Bordelon was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery and received many awards including the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Mila and her 2 children have carried on his legacy since then and all 3 are recipients of immediate and future use scholarships from the Folds of Honor Foundation. (see attached story)

This is what our event is all about. We are raising funds to assist those that could use the help to carry on with their lives by furthering their education. All of the money we raise at our event will stay in Arizona to help the families that have sacrificed so much. So again, I encourage you all to come out and help us raise some money and to honor the men and women of our military that have given so much so that we are able to live under the very Freedom they fight so hard to preserve. You are not able to make it to our event, you can still help out by going to our website, www.foldsofhonorgolfaz.com.

There are so many people that have helped us each and every year and we can not thank you enough. Last year we were the largest fundraiser in Arizona for the Folds of Honor Foundation and we hope to continue the growth needed to stay on top. With your help and generosity we can make that happen. We are also looking for volunteers to help us on tournament day. If you are interested in helping please contact Lindsey Yates at lins77@cox.net or  by phone at 602-531-4447.

Thank you for your support and we will see you on the 7th!
