LJT charity golf tournament to honor wounded warrior
Sept. 11 may mark one of the most tragic days in U.S. history, but LJT and Associates continues to flip the script in a positive way to honor U.S. service members.
Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation (WWIA) will join LJT and Associates in the 4th Annual LJT-Wallops Island Charity Golf Tournament on Friday, Sept. 11, 2015, at The Bay Club Golf Course in Berlin MD.
This year’s tournament is expanding to 160 golfers covering both of The Bay Club’s beautiful 18-hole golf courses. It is dedicated to the 9-11 American Heroes who have sacrificed in the war against terrorism – particularly those from the Delmarva Peninsula.
In keeping with that theme, the tournament has pledged to donate $2,000 to sponsor one specially selected WWIA Purple Heart recipient to attend the event. In the previous three years, the tournament has raised $35,000 for charities, and has set a goal of $20,000 for this year alone.
Previous beneficiaries range from Community College of the Eastern Shore and Habitat for Humanity, to Life Crisis Center and YMCA of the Chesapeake, along with many others. WWIA is honored to be included this year to honor and serve a wounded warrior.
“We are excited to include WWIA in our tournament and are proud to be able to give Wounded Warriors the opportunity they so richly deserve,” said organizer Jim Mason-Foley. “LJT feels that WWIA is one of the most deserving organizations considering the honorable work they do.”
WWIA members said they enjoy participating in fundraising events because they get to interact with other veterans and a supportive community while experiencing the soothing qualities of nature. WWIA Director of Initiatives, Carolyn Crissman, will be attending this event along with a Purple Heart recipient from the area.
