A $14,100 check will be presented to Community Haven for Adults and Children with Disabilities, Inc. on Wednesday, December 17, 2014 6:30PM at The VFW Post #3233 located at 124 S Tuttle Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34237. The money was raised by the Sarasota Men’s Auxiliary of VFW Post #3233 at their very successful 4th Annual Golf Tournament held on October 18th at Rolling Greens Golf Course. 100% of the golf tournament proceeds benefit clients with disabilities served by Community Haven located at 4405 DeSoto Road, Sarasota, FL. “This is the 4th 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.”
In addition to the check presentation, this will be a very special occasion as Matthew Griffin; Community Haven client will be inducted into the Men’s Auxiliary. Community Haven will be opening their 5th group home in 2015 and Matthew will become a resident as well. He will be the first person with disabilities at Community Haven to be a part of this philanthropic organization.
Community Haven would like to thank the Men’s Auxiliary of VFW Post #3233 and corporate sponsors for their continued partnership and support of our agency and the over 700+ children, teens, and adults we lovingly serve.
