As Hurricane Irma appears to be headed directly for Miami and South Florida, Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG) is trying to raise money for the hundreds of thousands affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana.
The company announced it is hoping to drive $1 million in donations to support Team Rubicon's efforts in the affected region, which is a total they will match. Team Rubicon is an organization of veterans and ex-military who come together to provide disaster relief.
“Team Rubicon has created an exceptional program that enables veterans to continue to serve and protect during times of emergency,” said PXG founder and Marine Corps veteran Bob Parsons in making the announcement. “Veterans are trained to act with precision, physically and mentally, amid chaos and disaster. They are often the calm during the storm. And together, they can move mountains.”
Donations can be made at the Team Rubicon’s website or by texting HARVEY to 87872.
