National construction company sponsors fifth annual Luke’s Wings Golf Fundraiser
Washington, D.C. — Venture Construction Group was a 2016 Silver Hole Sponsor at the Luke’s Wings 5th Annual Heroes Pro-Am Heroes Golf Classic Tournament. Luke’s Wings is dedicated to helping service members connect with their families while they’re recovering from battle. Luke’s Wings raised over $70,000 at the annual fundraiser, and over 100 attendees teed up to support our nation’s wounded warriors and their families, including seven Luke’s Wings beneficiaries participating in the tournament.
A unique highlight of the 2016 Heroes Pro-Am Heroes Golf Classic Tournament included tips and a Q&A with PGA pro Charlie Hoffman. The tournament also provided a one-on-one clinic with the pros. The event was held on June 20th at the Woodmont Country Club at 1201 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland, 20852.
“Luke’s Wings is grateful for the contributions of Venture Construction at our 5th Annual Heroes Pro-Am Golf Classic. The support we received from Venture Construction has enabled us to support wounded warrior families recovering across the country. The best thing we can provide to our American heroes is the gift of family and we thank Venture Construction and True Relics for helping us in that very important mission.” Lindsay Gill, Executive Director, Luke’s Wings “
Luke’s Wings was founded in 2008 by a group of young people who observed the struggles of the nation’s wounded warriors at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. Luke’s Wings was named after two people, Luke Shirley (a wounded warrior at Walter Reed who lost an arm and a leg in an IED blast) and Sarah Wingfield, a Redskins Cheerleader Ambassador who was visiting the troops at Walter Reed.
“Luke’s Wings is a tremendous organization that creates much needed support for our nation’s wounded warriors and their families, and we are honored to help any way that we can,” said Stephen Shanton, CEO of Venture Construction Group.
Luke’s Wings hosts major fundraisers throughout the year to raise funds and awareness of wounded warriors. As of December 2015, Luke’s Wings raised over $3,500,000 and has answered the call of more than 2,400 wounded warrior families and veterans in hospice care.
Luke’s Wings offers several programs focused on travel accommodations with wounded service members and their families including The Wounded Transportation Assistance Program (W.W.T.A.P), Veterans in Hospice Care Transportation Program (H.T.A.P.), Texas Veterans Transportation Assistance Program (V.T.A.P), and Special Operations Command Transportation Assistance Program (S.O.T.A.P).
