the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am,” said Amy Hawk, tournament director of
the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am. “We are pleased that we can give back to
Operation Homefront-Florida so that they can continue to lend a hand to
military families and our veterans. The amazing support of our Champions
Tour professionals, sponsors, volunteers and fans is what allows this
tournament to continue to give more money to the Tampa Bay community,”

since WWII and our year-to-date requests for assistance have increased
over 100%,” said Simone Hoover, Operation Homefront-Florida Chapter

used to assure those who stand in harms way that Operation
Homefront-Florida is here should an emergency arise at home. While the
mission of our military around the world changes over time, their needs
remain,” concludes Hoover.
