Earlier this month, Wish for Our Heroes North Florida hosted their annual golf outing fundraiser at Marsh Landing. There were over 90 players who participated in the 18-hole scramble, and first and second place winners took home Vokey Wedges.
“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our sponsors, volunteers, and players who came out to support our 2nd annual golf outing” said Joe Pearce, Director of the Wish for Our Heroes North Florida Chapter. He continued, “We well surpassed our fundraising goal for the event which will allow us to continue our mission of granting wishes for local, active-duty military during times of need.”
Wish for Our Heroes is proud of the fact that 97% of all monies raised go directly towards granting wishes. The organization’s priority is to always grant basic needs or emergencies first – anything from putting food on the table to assisting with car repairs, home repairs, baby supplies, clothing, etc. When basic needs are met, Wish for Our Heroes also enjoys providing fun things like sending the troops to athletic events, sending them on vacation to get re-acquainted after deployments, meeting celebrities and more.
