Why Golf for COPS?
Everyday, our law enforcement officers wake up, say goodbye to their families, and head to work uncertain as to whether or not they will return home.
They put everything on the line each time they clock in. Today, the risk is higher than ever. Yet, without complaining, these brave men and women put on a badge and protect our way of life.
They are more than just police officers; they are husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, family and friends.
When an officer loses their life, the effect on their family is catastrophic. There is emotional devastation to the family, not to mention the massive financial burden.
In its first four years, Golf for C.O.P.S. has generated over $1,230,000. Every dollar raised, outside the hard costs of the tournament, goes directly to the families of the fallen.
We have no salaried associates at McDavid Group Charities. Everyone helps on a volunteer basis.
Our PGA Tour Players and Sports Celebrities choose to participate due to their support of the cause.
Everyone that participates does so out of their passion for law enforcement. This is a charity that everyone can sink their teeth into.
Golf for COPS strongly supports surviving families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Our mission is to provide programs and counseling for families to help them cope with both the short and long-term challenges they have to navigate.
We at The McDavid Group Charities are proud to support these families through our annual golf tournament which honors and brings awareness to the men and women who put everything on the line every time they clock in.
