Alpharetta, Ga. — June 26, 2015 — For the eighth continuous year, Mr. Carl Meyer will celebrate Independence Day and show his respect for the service and sacrifice of the men and women of our Armed Forces by attempting to play “100 Holes for Our Heroes,” benefiting Hire Heroes USA. Hire Heroes USA is a national nonprofit organization that is committed to helping transitioning service members, veterans and their spouses obtain civilian employment.
The 8th Annual 100 Holes for Our Heroes will be held on July 4, 2015, at Chenequa Country Club in Hartland, WI. The entire event is planned and executed solely by Mr. Meyer, and features an attempt by the longtime golfer to play at least 100 holes in a single day. Mr. Meyer is a dedicated supporter, volunteer, and advocate of Hire Heroes USA. To date, his determination, strong dedication to our nation’s veterans, and hard work has raised over $360,000 for Hire Heroes USA. This year, Mr. Meyer’s fundraising goal is set at $70,000.
“We are blessed to live in the USA, and we would not enjoy our freedoms if it were not for the selfless acts of the servicemen and women who ensure them every day,” said Carl Meyer, 100 Holes for Our Heroes founder. “Hire Heroes USA provides much needed employment transition assistance to those most deserving of our country’s support.”
Funds raised will go toward the programs and services provided by Hire Heroes USA, including individual career coaching provided through remote service delivery regardless of geographic location of transitioning service members, veterans and spouses; and Transition Workshops, conducted on or near military installations throughout the US and in Europe. Hire Heroes USA staff teach how to effectively identify personal goals, formulate job search strategies, create effective civilian resumes, and excel in job interviews.
“This event has been absolutely critical to our success helping veterans,” said Brian Stann, Chief Executive Officer of Hire Heroes. “Carl Meyer is a pioneer for this organization, assisting us from the beginning and raising annual donations that have helped us grow our service capacity to transitioning service members, veterans and spouses nationwide.”
Meyer has already raised over $42,000 for this year’s event. Through the donations of individuals, corporations, and sponsors, he hopes to reinforce the importance of giving back to the men and women who serve in the military. More information about the event, including how to donate or become a sponsor, can be found online.
