This story originally contained incorrect information about Folds of Honor's Patriot Cup Weekend. It has been corrected.
The annual pro-am event, attended by Champions Tour, PGA and LPGA professionals and military golfers plus celebrities, will be held May 29. The event is sold out and is closed to the public. Contact Folds of Honor for any remaining sponsorships.
The Patriot Cup will be held May 30 at The Patriot Golf Club, 5800 Patriot Drive, in Owasso. That event is also closed to the public.
There will be a Freedom Concert featuring Lee Brice and Bixby’s Corey Kent White at 6:30 p.m. that Monday at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, 777 W. Cherokee St. in Catoosa. Tickets for the concert are available at bit.ly/foldsconcerttix.
Proceeds from the event provide educational support for spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled soldiers.
The Vintage Pearl owner Erin Edwards has created two jewelry items to help raise funds for the organization. They will be available May 30 online at vintagepearl.com.
The first is a premium leather cuff with the Folds of Honor logo hand-stamped into the leather. Selling for $35, the piece is stained, stitched and stamped at its Tulsa studio. The company is also offering a silver charm featuring the Folds of Honor signature flag on a sterling silver chain, selling for $42.
Twenty-five percent of the proceeds from the sales of the two pieces will go to the Folds of Honor Foundation.
Edwards’ reason for helping raise funds is personal.
“We have always supported the military, and working with a local charity like Folds of Honor is a great blessing,” she said in a statement. “With a dad and four brothers who all served, it makes it special.”
Her father was a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Marines, and her brothers served in the Marines, the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Army.
“There are so many great organizations out there that are doing amazing things, however, charities that focus on the military are especially special!” she added.
The Vintage Pearl’s mission, she said, is to give back to those in need. Over the years, it has supported many charities including the Salvation Army, Little Light House, Teen Challenge, American Red Cross, The Demand Project, Alzheimer Association, Susan G. Komen and the Tulsa Dream Center.
The company, founded in 2007, creates hand-stamped jewelry, personalized jewelry and keepsakes that can be customized with names, initials, dates and words of inspiration. The hand-stamped jewelry is created using sterling silver, freshwater pearls and birthstone crystals.
