Have you ever walked past a wounded veteran in uniform and thanked them, or wanted to thank them, for their service to our Country?
But, what if a veteran who may not be in uniform is suffering from injuries that can’t be seen by the naked eye, and yet are no less debilitating and possibly life threatening?
That’s where the Heroes To Heroes Foundation does it’s part to help reduce and hopefully end the startling statistic that each and every day 20 (and due to reporting issues likely more) military veterans take their own lives!
Heroes To Heroes Foundation Golf Classic: Who, What, Why, Where, When and How!
What is the purpose of the Heroes To Heroes Foundation Golf Classic? Raising funds for the Heroes To Heroes Foundation, a non-denominational and mostly volunteer military 501(c)(3) that successfully helps combat veterans suffering with PTSD, moral injury and traumatic brain injury through a program that combines spirituality and peer support with journey’s to Israel. Our program participants have either attempted suicide or have family who fear that such an attempt is imminent.
When is the event? Thursday, June 15, 2017
Where is the event? Saint Andrews Golf Club, Hastings-On-Hudson (15 miles from midtown Manhattan). Saint Andrews, a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, is the longest continuously operating golf club in the United States and home to the first U.S. Amateur and “Open” Championships.
Why a Golf Classic? As a predominantly volunteer 501(c)(3) with close to 90% of donated funds going towards achieving our mission, the Golf Classic is one of our years primary fundraisers. Our ultimate goal is to help 200 veterans a year and to date, none of our program graduates have taken their lives and all are on their way back to living them.
