D.U.S.T.O.F.F. is derived from the radio call sign given to the 57th Medical Detachment aeromedical helicopter evacuation unit in Vietnam (1962) and stands for Dedicated, Unhesitating Support To Our Fighting Forces. CDF Founder/CEO Charles Claybaker personally experienced "the last ride off the battle field" when the CV-22 Osprey he was in went down in Zabul Province, Afghanistan on 09 Apr 2010. When the idea of the foundation first came about Charles felt that the term D.U.S.T.O.F.F. embodied the mission of what he wanted to do and why he wanted to do it. From there, Claybaker D.U.S.T.O.F.F. Foundation was born.
UPDATE ON MAY 20 GOLF TOURNAMENT:
Due to unforeseen circumstances with golf course conditions at Quail Hollow Country Club, the CDF Charity Golf Scramble scheduled for May 20, 2016 will be postponed until Monday, October 17, 2016. Please note we also have a NEW VENUE LOCATION.
We are pleased to announce that the tournament will now be held at the magnificent Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club!!! Tampa Palms GCC has hosted Senior PGA events in the past and is in spectacular condition.
Registration will commence at 10AM and the tournament will tee off at 1130AM. The full program will be announced shortly but will remain very similar to what we had originally planned; we will be honoring military personnel from Iraq/Afghanistan, providing lunch and dinner, a silent auction to include some awesome military and sports memorabilia, and Medal of Honor Recipient, CSM (Ret) Gary L. Littrell will still be our key note speaker to end the day’s activities.
If you have already signed up to play in the event and this rescheduling causes any kind of difficulty with your schedule please call Don Schmidt at 727-218-3692 and a full refund will be granted with no issue.
Last minute hiccups are never ideal but Claybaker D.U.S.T.O.F.F. Foundation and Support the Troops Inc. are very excited for the opportunity to host everyone at a first class facility like Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club.
We appreciate your understanding and hope to see all of you at our charity golf scramble on October 17, 2016!
