Broken Arrow, Oklahoma– May 29th, 2018 – RISE Armament, a premier manufacturer and supplier of AR components and firearms, was proudly involved in the Folds of Honor Patriot Cup and Patriot Cup Invitational.
To show their support for Folds of Honor, RISE Armament sponsored a hole at The Patriot Cup over Memorial Day weekend. In lieu of golfing at that hole, tournament participants went through a timed shooting course, which was set up similar to a rifle stage at 3-Gun competitions. The competitors shot air guns, and their scores were factored into their overall score in the golf tournament.
“We couldn’t be more honored to be involved with the Folds of Honor organization and be able to help give back to those who have served our country,” stated Matt Torres, president of RISE Armament. “It was exciting to see the golfers take a break from their swing to take some shots in our staged rifle competition setup.”
The flagship fundraiser for Folds of Honor, The Patriot Cup Invitational is an annual weekend golf tournament and national gala celebrating our nation’s heroes. Following the Invitational on May 27, Folds of Honor hosted The Patriot Cup, an exclusive, invitation-only golf tournament contested at The Patriot Golf Club in Owasso, Oklahoma. This patriotic event is attended by players from the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions and LPGA Tour, military golfers from across the country, and a host of celebrities to create an unforgettable experience for the families of fallen and disabled service members. The weekend-long tournament ended with a solute to our troops.
