For the past 3 years the team has fundraised , organized and ran the Operation Comfort Benefit Tournament to help raise funds for Operation Comfort that is typically ran on Sept 11th weekend. The team did this as a way to give back for the support they received during the recovery of two Hookset Brothers from their own wounds sustained in Wars. Operation Comfort is a 501c3 that provides support to our Service Members who have been wounded in Afghanistan or Iraq and are receiving treatment at Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) and Audie Murphy VA Hospital in San Antonio, Texas. Wounded Service Members from all over the United States recover in San Antonio.

We're servants at heart but we were just a small part of the enormous rescue efforts in Houston , Beaumont and surrounding coastal towns. So many have done so much more and still so much to do to fully recover from this devastation. It's AMERICANS helping AMERICANS. We are proud of what we were able to accomplish and are looking for ways we can continue to help in the future. #TexasStrong
