There will be a new beneficiary from the 13th annual Jim "Mudcat" Grant All-Star Golf Tournament, later this month.

The outing is spear-headed by Security Mutual and is a way for the Binghamton-based life insurance company to help support local organizations including CHOW, the Broome County Urban League, Catholic Charities, the Boys and Girls Club and, new this year, the U.S. Military.

A portion of the funds raised will be given to the Wounded Warriors Project and to the Binghamton Veterans Administration outreach clinic to help it more effectively reach clients.

Security Mutual's President and CEO Bruce Boyea said it's important for his company to show its gratitude to service members.

"One of the things that we're really pleased with is that the revenue that will go to the four existing organizations will not be reduced because of what we're doing with the military. We've expanded the reach in terms of the number of sponsors to specifically support the military," he said.

This year's tournament has the largest number of sponsors to date with 36 companies on board. And, there is still time for businesses to get involved.

"Tee signs are still available and will be right up to the tournament proper, which is August 28th again at the Links at Hiawatha Landing. For 100 dollars it's a good chance for local businesses to evidence their support for this worthy cause," said Richard Shaw, Security Mutual vice president and counsel.
