Flash flooding in Dallas-Fort Worth held off just long enough for eighteen holes to be played in the DynCorp International (DI) Journey of Hope Charity Golf Tournament on Friday, September 21. The tournament raised $143,000 for the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) with donations from tournament sponsorships and raffles.
Bonnie Carroll, president and founder of TAPS, joined DI and the players at the Fossil Creek Golf Course in Fort Worth, Texas for the tournament.
“It was an honor to be the beneficiary of the DynCorp International Journey of Hope golf classic,” said
TAPS founder Bonnie Carroll. “The day came off flawlessly and the weather was perfect – the rain held off until the very last golfer was on their last hole! We like to think our heroes in heaven were watching over us and kept the rain off those who are helping their loved ones!”
