Captain Phillips and Redpoint hit the links to raise money for the Navy SEAL Foundation

‘Birdies by the Bay’

Captain Richard Phillips was the keynote speaker of the latest edition of “Birdies by the Bay,” an annual golf tournament held on Sept 24 in Half Moon Bay, California, to raise money for the Navy SEAL Foundation (NSF). The story of the hijacking of his ship by Somali pirates in 2009, and his rescue by Navy SEAL snipers, was retold in the 2013 movie, “Captain Phillips,” starring Tom Hanks.

As he has done for the past few years, Redpoint Resolutions Vice President Ted Muhlner assembled a team for the booster event, and brushed off the golf cleats in order to raise money for the Navy SEAL Foundation. Muhlner is a former SEAL and serves on the board of the Foundation. The NSF is dedicated to building a strong and resilient Naval Special Warfare community and ensuring our service members know that they and their families are well cared for.
