⛳ Boots and Birdies Charity Classic 2020

August 13, 2020

We are happy to announce our 9th annual fundraising event, the Boots & Birdies Charity Classic (BBCC), but want to be transparent about possible changes to expect.  The tournament is scheduled for Thursday, October 29th, 2020 at Falconhead Golf Club. Social distancing safeguards will be met as we tee off at noon. Depending on regulations at that time, we may be required to change our usual shotgun start scheduled for noon to different tee times for each group. This is how golf tournaments meet current regulations of gatherings of 10 or more people. Two players are allowed per cart and the beverage carts are a go!  We love to party with you but might be required to offer the auction and live entertainment virtually. If so, we promise to still make it a great event.  For updates, we invite you to check our website at Boots and Birdies 2020. We will follow up when we open […]

Letter from Co-Founder and Executive Director Ronda Englander, December 2019

December 16, 2019

Dear Friends of Comfort Crew, In 2013, Team CCMK registered to run in the Austin Marathon- Half Marathon. Each runner selected a veteran to honor. I selected Todd Nelson. In 2007, shortly before his scheduled flight home, Todd’s life was changed forever when a suicide bomber detonated beside his vehicle. He endured 20 lifesaving surgeries and another 20 reconstructive surgeries. I drew strength and inspiration from Todd’s journey that pushed me to reach the finish line 7 years ago and I continue to draw strength from his story. Todd shares his message of courage and faith with others. A few years ago, we had the privilege of recording an interview with Todd to capture his story on video. When asked about the impact of his injuries on his two daughters, Todd became emotional and said no one had ever asked him that question. He shared the difficulties his oldest daughter […]
