The second annual ACCESS Open, benefiting Folds of Honor, was held on Thursday, September 29, 2022, at Stone Creek Golf Course in Omaha, Neb. Hosted by ACCESS Commercial, 31 sponsors and 180 golfers participated in the event, which raised $100,000 to honor the integrity and mission of Folds of Honor.
Folds of Honor is a national nonprofit that provides life-changing scholarships to the spouses and children of America’s fallen or disabled military and first responders. With the $100,000 raised, Folds of Honor will be able to provide scholarships to 20 applicants.
Last year, the ACCESS Open raised $50,000 for Folds of Honor. This year, ACCESS achieved its goal to double the amount of funds raised.
“Darren and I were deeply touched by the mission of Folds of Honor when we learned about the organization a few years ago,” said Kirk Hanson, co-owner and principal at ACCESS Commercial. “To raise $50,000 in our inaugural tournament last year was amazing, but to see our community double that for the benefit of these deserving recipients means so much.”
Folds of Honor Regional Impact Officer Michelle Landes and Tiffany Eckert, surviving spouse of United States Army Sergeant Andrew Eckert and scholarship recipient, also attended the event.
“We are so grateful to the patriots that helped make this event a huge success,” said Landes. “Their support helps us to further our mission to ‘Honor Their Sacrifice and Educate Their Legacy.’ What the Omaha community has done through the ACCESS Open will not only help provide more support for these families but also help to raise the awareness of the mission of Folds of Honor.”
