PGA Tour Winner Billy Horschel and Wife Brittany Launch Horschel Family Foundation
Billy and Brittany Horschel, residents of Ponte Vedra Beach, have announced the formation of the Horschel Family Foundation. The foundation aims to invest in communities by supporting charities related to mental health, addiction, food insecurity, and the military. Brittany Horschel, a Nease graduate and former University of Florida golfer, will bring her personal perspective to the foundation, as she has been sober for seven years after battling alcoholism. Both Billy and Brittany Horschel are eager to help others face the obstacles they have overcome.
Billy Horschel acknowledges the impact addiction has on entire families and believes he can use his own experience to assist others. Brittany Horschel highlights the fact that addiction is a family disease that affects everyone involved. The first step for the Horschel Family Foundation is the PAR Program (Privacy, Access, and Resources), which aims to break down barriers preventing individuals from seeking help for mental illness or addiction. The foundation will collaborate with the PGA Tour and local mental health and addiction specialists to provide pathways for healing.
In addition to mental health and addiction, the foundation will also focus on areas where Billy Horschel has made an impact in the past. He has been a supporter of Feeding Northeast Florida, sponsors American Junior Golf Association and Advocates Professional Golf Association tournaments, and has worked with K9s for Warriors. While Billy continues to play golf full-time, Brittany is excited to dedicate her time to making the foundation a full-time endeavor. The couple aspires to have a positive influence on their community, and they look to other PGA Tour players who have created foundations for inspiration.
