SIG Sauer raised $70,000 for Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) during its 4th Annual SIG Sauer Charity Golf Tournament held Aug. 9, 2019, on Pease Golf Course in Newington, NH. This year’s event expanded to 192 golfers whose generosity nearly doubled the amount of money raised for the non-profit organization.

“For over a decade, the HAVA organization has been re-integrating disabled veterans and injured military into American life through outdoor activities and the shooting sports,” said Tom Taylor, chief marketing officer and executive vice president, commercial sales for SIG Sauer. “For everyone at SIG Sauer it’s an honor to support this meaningful program, and contribute to continuing the services provided by HAVA that are making a difference in the lives of the men and women that fought to protect our freedoms.”

HAVA is a 501(c)3 non-profit founded in 2007 by a group of executives from the shooting and hunting industry to help disabled veterans and injured active-duty military returning from war heal, and reintegrate back into everyday life through participation in outdoor activities. It sponsors shooting events, guided hunts and outdoor activities across the country, hosting hundreds of veterans annually.

The organization recently completed the first in its series of long-range shooting weekends in July at the FTW Ranch, near Barksdale, TX. Five disabled veterans with no precision shooting experience extended their skills—out to 1,000 yards on day one and 1,835 the next—thanks to the one-on-one support provided by experienced HAVA volunteers.

SIG Sauer is a longstanding supporter and sustaining sponsor of HAVA. The company annually participates in the organization’s sponsored shooting and hunting events across the country benefiting hundreds of veterans, including the upcoming 7th Annual Rock Castle Family Day on Sept. 14, 2019, at Rockcastle Shooting Sports Center in Park City, KY.
