6th Annual Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl Golf Tournament

On September 28, the 6th annual Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl Golf Tournament was held to thank those that contributed to a successful 2008 bowl game.

Held at Bear Creek Golf Club, this event included 204 players from more than 60 corporate partner companies. Plus, we were once again honored to have representatives from all five branches of the military attend: Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard.

The USO was present taking donations to raise money in support of active military personnel all over the world. Over $1,000 was raised through player donations.

Donated raffle and hole prizes came from many generous sponsors and partners of the bowl.  Some include: Omni Fort Worth Hotel, Dallas Stars, Four Day Weekend, Dallas Mavericks, Courtyard by Marriott and Pepsi.


A special thanks to Renaissance Worthington, Rosa’s Café, Scott & Doug Murray of Murray Media and all our volunteers for donating their time and resources to making this golf tournament a success.

The first place team came from Lockheed Martin Missiles & Fire Control with Paul Fearing, Joel Strickland, Cory Roseborrough and Tom Kiefer. Each received a Callaway Hybrid golf club and $100 gift card.
