The Red Coat Ride Out concluded a month of events that celebrated THE PLAYERS charitable outreach and total charitable donations as a result of the 2013 tournament.
Operation New Hope received a $10,000 grant from the Red Coats this year, and a surprise $10,000 donation from THE PLAYERS was revealed during the Red Coats visit.
