WHAT: USO Central Florida will be presented with a check for $13,000 from DPR Construction’s Annual Charity Golf Tournament.
WHO: Carrie Harper, USO Central Florida Events Director and Michael Van Butsel of DPR Construction
WHEN: May 7, 2013
2:30pm – 3:00pm
WHERE: USO Central Florida Welcome Center, 2nd Level
Tampa International Airport
4100 George J. Bean Parkway
Tampa, FL 33607
WHY: After DPR Construction designed and built the USO Central Florida Welcome Center at Tampa International Airport in 2012, they became inspired to give back to the local military community. . This year marks the first year that a military related charity will be a recipient of money raised at DPR Construction’s Annual Charity Golf Tournament. The funds will go to USO Central Florida programs such as Welcome Home Greetings, Deployment Send Offs, No Dough Dinners and other morale building activities throughout the Tampa Bay military community. Without the generous support of businesses like DPR Construction, USO Central Florida would not be able to continue its mission of “Lifting the Spirits of America’s Troops and their Families.”
