Overview

Merchant & Gould would like to extend our wishes and prayers to the men & women who serve our country and their families. Merchant & Gould strongly upholds the value of supporting the communities that we serve and the country for which we are so lucky to live in.

Merchant & Gould client TEE IT UP FOR THE TROOPS is a non-profit organization established by the family and friends of a soldier serving in the U.S. Army. When the father asked what the son needed he responded by asking his father to do something for the soldiers and families of the fallen and disabled back home. TEE IT UP FOR THE TROOPS, INC, was created to help honor that request, and to honor and recognize the needs of all veterans who have served this nation. The goal is to make the Friday closest to September 11th each year a NATIONAL DAY OF GOLF saluting all those who have answered the call of duty. It also serves as a day to acknowledge and honor the sacrifice of the military veterans and their families.

Merchant & Gould attorney, Kristine Boylan leads the TEE IT UP FOR THE TROOPS pro bono team here at Merchant & Gould. She represented the firm Friday Sept.7th at the national day of golf at The Mendakota Country Club event in support of the United States troops. The event raised nearly 1 million dollars.
