|Over $11,500 was raised by the VFW Post #3233 at their 3rd Annual Golf Tournament. 100% of the proceeds will benefit clients with disabilities served at Community Haven located at 4405 DeSoto Road, Sarasota, FL. Over 80 golfers played 18 holes at the Rolling Green Golf Club. “This is the 3rd year that the Men’s Auxiliary has held a golf tournament for Community Haven,” stated Marla Doss, President and CEO at Community Haven, “and every year it gets bigger and better than the last.” The day ended with steak dinners at VFW Post #3233 on Tuttle where the players gathered to raise extra money with raffle prizes and an auction. “The men, women and families of VFW #3233 get it!” says Thomas Hull, father of Matthew, 25, who was born with cerebral palsy and sparkling blue eyes that will melt your heart. “They know how to come together and serve.” Community Haven would like to thank to Men’s Auxiliary of VFW Post #3233 for their continued partnership and support of our agency and the over 700+ children, teens and adult we lovingly serve.
