Texan Golfer Rory Sabatini Defends Troops Through Charity Work

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Rory Sabatini is best known for his pro golfing, but now he’s taking a swing at helping both pets and soldiers.

Starting today (Feb. 14), Sabatini is launching a military charity program that will sell dog tags for $2 each with the funds going to the Intrepid Fallen Heros Fund, a charity that benefits military amputees.

The tags will be sold at all Banfield Veterinary Hospitals and PetSmart stores and Sabatini figures it should gain support from Americans from all over the political spectrum because, he points out, “You can’t associate pet tags with supporting the war.”

About 200,000 tags are being sold and with donations coming from various sources – including $250,000 from the PGA tour – the amount donated to the vets should reach $1 million.

Besides helping out vets who’ve lost limbs while fighting for their country, Sabatini says the charity will also get other vets a 5 percent discount at the Banfield hospitals.
