Holes for Heroes® 
Military Appreciation Event

For the past 13 years, the San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary Foundation has proudly presented our Holes for Heroes Military Appreciation events. Our purpose is to salute our wounded and recovering military heroes, assist the children and families of deployed and home based troops and KIAs, recognize Veterans of WWII and all former wars,  and to support local humanitarian projects.

Over 450 wounded and combat heroes and family members have attended Holes for Heroes® Military Appreciation events, providing them with a fabulous day of golf, friendship and recognition.  This event provides a unique opportunity for the community-at-large to say, "Thank You"—up close and personal. Many military participants are amputees, two heroes have been nominated for the Medal of Honor, and, in addition, WWII and Vietnam POWs have been honored at our recognition dinner.

Since inception we have raised and distributed close to $1.4 million from this single unique event.  Here are some things to consider:
  • 100% to charities. San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary sponsors this event, so there is absolutely no salaried staff involved.  100% of the net proceeds raised go to our beneficiaries because we are 100% volunteers and there is no fixed overhead.
  • 100% Local. We continually vet the beneficiary charities in our LOCAL area to be sure our local community is getting the maximum impact from the donations.  
  • 100% vetted and trusted. Our San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary Foundation, a 501(c )(3), Not-for-Profit is a trusted foundation chartered only for philanthropic needs.  All the money that comes into the Rotary Foundation must be passed on to selected and vested charities and cannot be used for any other purpose.
Holes for Heroes® is recognized as one of San Diego's most rewarding and popular Military Appreciation events.  Supporting our local military for the sacrifices that they and their families made and continue to make daily on our behalf is only fitting and appropriate. 
Consider donating and, even better, consider participating. It is fun to say thank you in this way. 

Our financial goal this year is to make at least $120,000 to pass on to charities in our community.
Thank you for helping us help our Heroes!
