PVR Bulletin – September 2021


One of our largest fundraising events for PROJECT: VetRelief, the Annual Golf Tournament hosted by RL James, Inc., is scheduled for Monday, September 27th. This event is crucial to our program and without it would see a financial strain on our Emergency Assistance Program!

Golfers will enjoy a premier experience at the Bella Collina Golf Course, located in Monteverde, FL, and should expect a day filled with fun and many chances to win some cool prizes while staying safe.

Although the tournament is currently sold out, you can still participate. We will feature the Silent Auction online again this year. You do not have to be present to participate and anyone can bid on these items. Check it out using the link below:


We have a few volunteer positions available. If you’d like to come and help out, please contact Jennifer Cooper at 407-295-2631. Volunteers can expect to help with golfer registration, work a contest hole, or assist with our silent auction. Hope to see you there!


Newly elected Florida Legion Department Commander and Florida Auxiliary President, Jerry and Wanda Brandt, chose to support PROJECT: VetRelief for their fundraising efforts during their one-year term in office.

Both Jerry and Wanda are passionate about assisting Florida’s veterans in all capacities! In addition to collecting funds, Commander Brandt would like to see our program enhance our directory of service organizations and ensure our Legion Posts have access to them. Although PROJECT: VetRelief has already started collecting this information, it’s currently provided to Advocate Training Attendees only.

Please join them in their efforts in providing the necessary support our veteran community needs. The Auxiliary has requested all Units to use the donation form when submitting your donations for President Wanda Brandt’s charity. For those supporting Commander Jerry Brandt, please ensure your checks are made payable to PROJECT: VetRelief, and “Commander’s Charity” is marked on the memo line.

If you are planning an event, we would like to hear all about it so we can promote it in our monthly newsletters, on the PROJECT: VetRelief website and Facebook page. We also have promotional materials that we can send for your events. Contact Jennifer Cooper by sending an email to jcooper@floridalegion.org with all of the
