Sig Sauer Raises

SIG Sauer raised more than $120,000 for Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) during its 7th Annual SIG Sauer Charity Golf Tournament. The tournament, held in August at Pease Golf Course in Newington, NH, is an annual event hosted by the company in support of the HAVA organization and its outreach efforts.

“This signature HAVA event is made possible through the overwhelming generosity of individuals, organizations, supporters and industry partners,” said Tom Taylor, chief marketing officer and executive vice president of SIG Sauer. “Since the event’s founding, the SIG organizing committee has raised close to $500,000 and countless volunteer hours. One hundred percent of this funding goes directly towards expanding the HAVA programming through shooting events and hunting, and in support of the HAVA mission to re-integrate disabled veterans and injured military back into normal life.”

HAVA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2007 by a group of executives from the hunting and shooting industry to help disabled veterans and injured active-duty military returning from war heal and reintegrate back into everyday life through participation in outdoor activities. It sponsors guided hunts, shooting events and outdoor activities across the country hosting hundreds of veterans annually.

SIG Sauer is a longstanding supporter and sustaining sponsor of HAVA. Annually, SIG Sauer participates in HAVA-sponsored shooting and hunting events across the country each year.

The organization’s flagship San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) HAVA Family Day at the SAPD Training Facility is Nov. 4, 2023. Each year the organization makes the event family friendly by providing childcare and special events for the youngsters. The adults enjoy cowboy action shooting demonstrations, have plenty of time to get behind the trigger of a variety of guns, with lunch, raffles, dinner, giveaways and more. This year slots filled up fast, but Veterans and their loved ones should visit the HAVA home page often to stay up to date with other gatherings nearby throughout the year.
