Get Excited for the 5th Annual CCF Golf Classic on October 12th!
Our event is fast approaching on October 12th (Columbus Day) 2015 at The Resort at Pelican Hill and promises to be our best year yet! Proceeds are directed to Carrington House, Veterans Airlift Command (VAC), and The Gary Sinise Foundation R.I.S.E. program to improve the lives of wounded Veterans and their families who have sacrificed for our freedom and are in need of our support.
Carrington takes great pride in assisting our nation’s wounded Heroes and their families who have sacrificed for our freedom and this annual event serves are our largest fundraising opportunity to give back to wounded Veterans. 2014 was a record year for Carrington Charitable Foundation and our Annual Golf Classic. We hosted over 450 guests and raised over $1.7 million for wounded Heroes and their families on October 6th, 2014.
The generosity of our donors, supporters, and volunteers have helped us to complete five homes for wounded Veterans in 2014 through our ongoing collaboration with The Gary Sinise Foundation’s R.I.S.E. program, with six more on track for completion in 2015. Donations from the event also support the Veterans Airlift Command’s on-going mission to provide free air transportation through a network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots for severely wounded Veterans and their families of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.
Your involvement is crucial to make our event a success and maximize our impact on these Heroes and their families. Held at one of the world’s most premier resorts, our Golf Classic is focused on spending time with the wounded Heroes in attendance and understanding the realities they face with their devastating injuries. Featured speakers at the event will be injured Veterans and their caregivers, as well as actor Gary Sinise of The Gary Sinise Foundation and Walt Fricke, CEO and Founder of the Veterans Airlift Command.
New this year, we have added an evening of rock ‘n’ roll with Gary Sinise & The Lt. Dan Band at the City National Grove in Anaheim, California on October 10th! There’s something for everyone as the twelve-member group covers hits from every genre in support of our nation’s defenders and their families. Whether boosting morale on military bases at home and abroad, raising awareness at benefit concerts across the country or headlining our own Invincible Spirit Festivals, the band entertains, educates, inspires and builds communities with its explosive live show everywhere it goes.
We could not do this without you! It is only with the generosity of our supporters that we can work together to provide vital assistance to wounded Veterans and their families.
