The golf tournament was a roaring success. The numbers are in and I must tell you this was the most successful fund raising in our six year history. We had 18 complete teams (72 players). Mother nature provided an absolutely gorgeous day, and a good time were had by all.
The total fundraising event awarded Vittles for Vets with $23,650.00 for our food program assisting veterans in need and their families. That dollar amount equates to 473 weeks of food which will be distributed in the form of $50.00 food gift cards to the 90 veterans enrolled in the program which will cover their food needs to just over a five week period.
A huge shout out to Mark Teer, director of the Roanoke Chapter of Vittles for Vets, and also Greg Fry who went above and beyond in not only promoting the event but was responsible for some very large donations and contributions to the event, including but not limited to securing a delicious boxed lunch donated to the event by Mr. Steve Dell of Wildwood Smokehouse. Greg told Mark and I that he wanted to insure that the golf event would have NO out of pocket expense for the Vittles and he called upon like minded patriots to insure that was the case.
To all who donated time, effort and donations, together with all who attended a heartfelt THANK YOU from the Vittles staff and the many veterans whose lives we touch in such a positive way.
