Warriors & Quiet Waters Foundation (WQW) raised $154,000 at its annual Journey Home golf tournament and reception. The Journey Home Golf Tournament, which took place at Riverside Country Club on Monday, June 20, began with a Step Aside Scramble and shotgun start at 1 p.m. and concluded with a reception at 5:30 p.m.
Our celebratory reception was led by WQW volunteer, Rob Fox, who spoke of how the process of learning how to catch fish on a fly rod led a Warrior to realize that it was possible to create a new identify for himself after military service, one not restricted by a missing limb. Following Rob, Brian Gilman, Colonel, USMC, (Ret.), gave the keynote address about the challenges that veterans face integrating into civilian life after military service and the role WQW plays in helping post-9/11 combat veterans to thrive long-term
“Thank you to everyone who attended The Journey Home golf tournament and reception. We not only surpassed our fundraising goal, we were inspired by all those who are passionate about helping veterans thrive after military service.” said Emily Sather, WQW’s Chief Development Officer. “And be sure to check out the great photos captured throughout the day by WQW’s photographer, SGT Michael J. MacLeod.”
