The Stone Open is an informal gathering of friends and retail industry employees, including retailers, distributors, manufacturer’s representatives and consumer electronics manufacturers meeting for a day of golf, laughs and beverages.
The 2021 Stone Open was held on September 11th, 2021. In total, the Stone Open has raised over $25,000 for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation since 2011.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation has been supporting the families of fallen and wounded Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel for since 1980. The foundation provides two primary programs: full college scholarships and educational counseling to the children of fallen special operations personnel. Scholarships include tuition, books, fees, room & board, laptop, and printer. The SOWF also provides immediate financial assistance to severely wounded special operations personnel so their family ones could be bedside during their loved one’s recovery.
Today, the SOWF has 996 children in its program with 140 students currently enrolled in colleges and universities across the country.
“What makes us different from other scholarship organizations is that we proactively reach out to all of our students and work with them to get them into school,” said SOWF President, John T. Carney, Jr.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation relies on financial gifts from the general public and donations generated by grassroots fundraising events organized by supporters, as it does not receive funding from the federal or state government.
“This exceptional designation differentiates Special Operations Warrior Foundation from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust,” said Berger.
Thank you to our sponsors for the contests, gifts, and more. We hope to see you there again in 2022!
