Willis Lease Finance joined the 2022 Green Berets at Golden Bear charity golf tournament as the title sponsor. The tournament has raised more than $125,000 in sponsorships and donations. Net proceeds mostly benefit the Green Beret Foundation (GBF).
“As the title sponsor, we hope to motivate others to support the GBF,” Austin C. Willis, CEO of WLFC, said. Willis served as a Green Beret in the U.S. Army’s 20th Special Forces Group. “This event is a great way to spend time with U.S. Army Special Forces veterans in a casual setting and gain a better understanding of the ways that the GBF supports them in times of need.”
“We’re ecstatic to partner with WLFC for this year’s event, which helps support our mission of providing Special Forces Soldiers and their families with emergency, immediate and ongoing support through our five program pillars: casualty support, heath & wellness support, family support, gold star & surviving families support, and transition support,” Brent Cooper, executive director of GBF, said.
