The Liberty Mutual Invitational National Finals is the culmination of a series of more than 70 charity golf tournaments around the country in 2013 hosted by Liberty Mutual and local and national charitable organizations that raised more than $5.6 million for charity. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from the National Finals will support American Red Cross Moore County and Moore Free Care Clinic.
