Healing Heroes promises to raise $17,000 to give a severely wounded veteran a ParaMobile Device

In its mission to support the most severely injured veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, the Independence Fund will host the inaugural Healing Heroes Golf Week (HHGW) in the South Carolina Lowcountry from April 23-27, 2012.


 The Independence Fund volunteers thank these Lowcountry courses for sponsoring this event:

Callawassie Island Club: April 23
The Golf Club at Hilton Head Lakes
: April 24
Sanctuary Golf Course (Cat Island)
: April 26
Fripp Island Ocean Point Links
: April 27

Entry cost is $75 per golfer per round and includes cart, greens fee, prizes and snacks. On-course registration will begin at 10:30 AM at each site followed by a shotgun start for scramble at noon. Entries are limited to 100 golfers each day.

"This is a great way for people from the local community to not only support these heroes, but to actually get out and spend some meaningful time with them
," said volunteer Golf Director Robert de Treville of Beaufort.  "What better place to do this than on a South Carolina Golf Course?"

"As of now, we have had nearly two dozen wounded veterans registered to participate, meaning that we should be able to place a veteran in each foursome at all four of the participating courses," added event organizer Dick Clarke of Beaufort.

Considering Beaufort County's large retired military population, participants should register early to ensure their slot in this patriotic event. Registration packets are available at most area pro shops. To register online, go to http://www.healingheroesgolfweek.com/.

HHGW proceeds will be used to purchase one or more $17,000 ParaMobile, a stand up and play mobility device, for wounded veteran(s). Remaining funds will be used to provide direct support and the tools, therapies, and guidance that those veterans severely injured in the War on Terror are otherwise not receiving. The Independence Fund is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c) 3 organization run by combat veterans. Event organizers or participants are not financially compensated and all proceeds benefit our wounded troops. To learn more, visit www.independencefund.org or www.ldw3.com.
