Navistar announced that the 2011 Navistar LPGA Classic, to be held Sept. 15-18, 2011 at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Capitol Hill complex in Prattville, Ala., will be open to the public free of charge.
Navistar, in partnership with the LPGA and the Retirement Systems of Alabama, will instead honor those who serve in the U.S. armed forces by asking event attendees to donate to the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit organization that provides programs and services for injured service members and caregivers.
In its fifth year, the Navistar LPGA Classic has confirmed more than 100 of the world’s top women golfers, including the top six-ranked players: Yani Tseng, Cristie Kerr, Suzanne Pettersen, Jiyai Shin, Na Yeon Choi and I.K. Kim.
More than 45,000 of our nation’s armed forces have been physically wounded during the recent military conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hundreds of thousands more are estimated to be recovering from invisible wounds of war, including post-traumatic stress disorder, major depression, and traumatic brain injury.
WWP assists wounded veterans and their families through a holistic approach to their recovery. In addition, Wounded Warrior Project’s Warriors to Work program assists veterans with the transition back into the civilian workforce, including many jobs in the trucking and transportation industry.
This free program offers a complete package of employment-assistance services, including resume assistance, interviewing skills, job training, networking and job placement assistance.
“We are thankful to Navistar for their commitment to our mission of honoring and empowering wounded warriors,” said Steve Nardizzi, executive director of Wounded Warrior Project.
