GPS Supporting Our Troops

GPS employees attended the second annual ‘Tee-Up’ Celebrity Golf Benefit held June 15th at the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort in Lincolnshire, Illinois.  Hosted by former Chicago Bears fullback Jason McKie, this event benefited the Jason McKie Foundation and Operation Homefront Illinois.

In addition to gorgeous weather, attendees enjoyed celebrity appearances by former and current Chicago Bears players, an Olympic boxer, and various members of the media.  Tyler Burgess, President of GPS and Managing Editor of The Locker Room magazine (The Locker Room was proud to once again sponsor the Golf Benefit) was also there to tee up.  Tyler shared that he was “delighted to support this event in much the same way as our military families support the men and women who defend and protect us.”
