Each year, Bill Schey and a host of patriotic and generous community members pull together for a sold-out Barrington Patriot Golf Day. The day is filled with golf at Barrington Hills Country Club and Biltmore Country Club, followed by a Patriot Ceremony and cocktails, dinner, presentations, and a live auction. Proceeds provide scholarships for the families of fallen and disabled Military and First Responders. A stunning $800,000 was raised on Monday, September 11, at the popular event.
This year, University of Alabama student and Folds of Honor Scholarship Recipient Britton Samuel shared a moving story about her father, retired Navy Seal and recipient of the Navy Cross, Jeff Samuel, whose military service resulted in his being severely wounded in combat and permanently disabled. Her story is one of many at the heart of Folds of Honor and its mission.
This year’s Patriot Golf Day and evening festivities were met with rain, but that did not dampen its stunning success. “You are an amazing group of very generous individuals,” Schey said. “While we could not control the rain, yet all that attended the dinner heard real-life stories from Britton Samuel, Lt. Col. Mike Adkinson, and a patriotic, motivational speech by Lt. Commander Evangelo “Vann” Morris.”
