CROMWELL, CT (WFSB) -

More than $50,000 was raised when the Travelers Championship and TPC River Highlands joined together earlier this month to host the Birdies for the Brave Golf Outing at TPC River Highlands.

Birdies for the Brave is a military outreach initiative that is supported by the PGA Tour.

Since 2005, more than $13 million has been raised for military-homefront charities, and money from the event this year will benefit several organizations including: United Through Reading, Homes for Our Troops, Operation Homefront, Navy Seal Foundation, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, Military Warriors Support Foundation and Green Beret Foundation.
