Our Mission

Our mission is to provide financial support to injured military veterans and their families. The distribution of funds raised is accomplished through Yellow Ribbon Fund, Inc.

The 8th annual Dr. B’s Yellow Ribbon Fund Golf Tournament is set for November 9 & 10, 2017. Hosted by Dr. Jim Barsamian and held in partnership with Marsh Landing Country Club, philanthropic minded corporate and prominent citizens come together on Thursday evening for the “Salute to the Yellow Ribbon Fund” dinner event with guest speakers and live as well as Silent auctions. The next morning the golf tournament begins with breakfast and a shot gun start. On-course skill and many other golf events add to the enjoyment of the day.

A Record-breaking Year for the Yellow Ribbon Fund Golf Tournament!

Last year’s event included a sit-down dinner for 262 attendees, a guest speaker, a Silent and Live auction and a Raffle. The next day the course and weather were magnificent for those 144 golfers and 30 volunteers that participated, with a luncheon and awards ceremony following the the round of golf.

The 2016 event became the largest single contributing event for the Yellow Ribbon Fund within the United States. Our total contribution was over $269,000, bringing our seven year total to almost three-quarters of a million dollars for this most important charity which supports the needs of our injured military men, women and their families.

Thanks again to the MLCC YRF Executive Committee Members for your support.

Our Goal this year is to surpass last year’s fabulous contribution, with a push to reach a new milestone of $300,000. We hope to gain more corporate involvement along with local foundations and grants in order to help us reach this goal! You can help us by becoming a Sponsor, an Auction Donor, or Golfer.
