Bushnell Outdoor Products Provides $200,000 Contribution to Folds of Honor Foundation
Bushnell Outdoor Products, an industry leader in sports optics and outdoor accessories for more than 60 years, has announced its 2011 contribution to Folds of Honor Foundation will total $200,000. Since establishing a partnership in 2010, the outdoor leader has contributed nearly $300,000 to Folds of Honor.
Founded by Major Dan Rooney in 2007, Folds of Honor provides post-secondary educational scholarships to the spouses and children of service members disabled or killed during U.S. military service. Major Rooney, a former F-16 pilot who served three tours in Iraq, founded Folds of Honor to ensure that families of fallen service members never have to endure alone.
“Thanks to support from partners like Bushnell, 2011 was a monumental year for Folds of Honor Foundation,” said Major Dan Rooney, Folds of Honor president and founder. “Last year alone we were able to double the number of scholarships provided, and as a result of that incredible momentum we hope to provide 1,000 scholarships in 2012,” added Major Rooney.
In 2012 Bushnell will continue its product partnership with Folds of Honor with two exclusive golf laser rangefinders: Bushnell Tour V2 Patriot Pack and Tour V2 Slope Patriot Pack. A portion of the proceeds from each Patriot Pack sold will be donated to Folds of Honor.
