Thanks to the incredible support from our fans, last year the AT&T National sent 5,880 care packages to troops overseas and raised more than $3,000 in donations. Since inception of the Care Package program at the 2009 AT&T National, the tournament has delivered more than 30,000 care packages to our troops.
