The Rooney’s Golf Foundation started hosting the Armed Forces Appreciation Breakfast in 2018 at the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, FL. This patriotic event honors those who served and are serving to protect our country. The program includes breakfast or lunch, patriotic songs, a keynote speaker, and a preview of the upcoming Army-Navy Football Game. Past keynote speakers include former Congressman Thomas J. Rooney, Vietnam Veteran/former Pittsburgh Steeler, Rocky Bleier, former Naval Academy and Football Player, Napoleon McCallum, and in 2022 former Pittsburgh Steeler and Army Ranger Captain, Alejandro Villanueva.


We are proud to announce that our next luncheon will be on December 5, 2023 with our guest speaker, Richard Y. Newton III, Lieutenant General, U.S. Air Force (Ret.). We are excited to hear about how Dick Newton has successfully led thousands of men and women during peacetime and times of crisis with his 34 years in the U.S. Military culminating as the United States Air Force Assistant Vice Chief of Staff!
