The Fourth Annual MFA Oil Charity Golf Scramble and Concert raised $135,000 for Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit organization that provides emergency and financial assistance to the families of U.S. military service members and veterans. The event was held June 4 at The Club at Old Hawthorne in Columbia and featured 58 teams and a private concert by country music singer Luke Combs.
“We are proud to support Operation Homefront in their mission of building strong, stable, and secure military families,” says Mark Fenner, MFA Oil president and CEO. “Thanks to the contributions of our event sponsors, golfers, customers and employees, provided Operation Homefront with more than $530,000 in donations over the last four years.”
The money donated by MFA Oil will go to active duty military and veteran families in Missouri and Kansas, and surrounding areas.
Founded in 2002, Operation Homefront provides military and veteran families with relief through critical financial assistance, transitional housing programs, resiliency through permanent housing and caregiver support services, and recurring family support programs and services throughout the year that help military families overcome the short-term bumps in the road so they don’t become long-term chronic problems.
