The Outback Steakhouse Annual Golf Classic is raising money for the American Freedom Foundation for the second year in a row. The foundation supports veterans and their families by raising money and awareness for veterans' organizations. The non-profit group has a special focus on welfare and education issues facing troops wounded or disabled in action and the families of veterans killed in action during operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. The 17th annual golf event will be played Monday, October 5, 2009, at Cannon Ridge Golf Club in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Last year, the classic raised $75,000. Information about this year's sponsorship opportunities, registration and activity times can be found on the Cannon Ridge Web site.
