Southwest Florida – Neal Communities is the leadership stars and stripes sponsor of the 14th annual American Legion golf tournament on Saturday October 27, 2012. The tournament will be held at the Capri Isles Golf Club in Venice, FL with a shotgun start at 8:30am followed by a steak luncheon at the American Legion. Neal Communities donated $350 to the well-known tournament that has become known as the Veterans Golf Open. “This is a cause that is close to my heart,” said Pat Neal, president of Neal Communities. “We are proud to support our community’s veterans and salute the work they do to protect our Country,” said Neal.
Wounded and returning veterans benefit directly from the proceeds of this year’s tournament. “Without the support of people like Pat Neal, there wouldn’t be a tournament,” said Mike Vanech, Chairman of the Veterans Golf Open Committee. “The money raised from this event goes directly to help house families of severely wounded veterans coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan, as they go through rehabilitation in Tampa,” said Vanech. Some of the funds will also help support the newly formed USO near the Tampa International Airport.
