The McKee Family

 

The Heroes @ Home Golf Tournament is underwritten and hosted by The McKee Family Foundation, which is dedicated to giving back to the community through charitable giving and volunteer work. Our family has a long history and close family connection to America’s Armed Services, and thus have dedicated much effort to honoring, and assisting our veterans, as they return from combat and reintegrate into civilian life. It is our hope that we can help make a few of their lives just a little bit easier through our efforts.


Below, you will find a list of our family members who have served, or are serving, to protect and defend our freedom. To those who are no longer with us, we will never forget you for your service to our country and the wonderful ways that you have touched our lives. To the rest, thank you for what you have done and are doing, and how you have helped shape our lives and families. We will never be able to thank you enough for what you have done for us and for our country. You are truly our Heroes!
