The 6th Annual PROJECT: VetRelief Golf Tournament was held on Monday, September 23rd at the beautiful Bella Collina Golf Course in Monteverde, FL. At approximately 8:30AM, after attendees stood at attention for the Pledge of Allegiance, the shotgun went off sending approximately 124 golfers on their way.
PVR Board Vice-President, Bob James, hosted corporate partners, vendors and friends to a fun filled day of golf. He set a lofty goal to work towards for this year’s event. He was able to meet his goal, and provide a donation of a record setting$57,100 to PROJECT: VetRelief!
The following Legionnaires came to show their support by either playing golf or volunteering: Commander, Rick Johnson; Adjutant, Michael McDaniel; Americanism Chairman, Kurt Gies; VA Entitlement Chairman, Larry Roberts; and Michael Beaven.
Our appreciation goes out to all of the sponsors, players, and volunteers for their continued support of Florida’s veterans!
