More than 250 golfers gathered recently at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Coast, Calif., for the Carrington Charitable Foundation’s 6th Annual Golf Classic, which raised more than $2.2 million for wounded American veterans. Every year since 2011, proceeds from Carrington’s Golf Classic directly benefit Carrington House and the Veterans Airlift Command, improving the lives of wounded heroes who have returned from service and who need support. The annual event raises money to provide diverse ongoing assistance to veterans and their families. After sunset on the course, more than 400 supporters attended an evening banquet and auction, during which veterans and supporters spoke passionately about the importance of the Carrington Charitable Foundation’s ongoing mission, recognizing there is often a considerable cost for the peace and freedom enjoyed by Americans.
“It is a tremendous honor for us to organize this event to give back to our veterans and their families, and we are grateful that so many others have joined us in this worthy cause,” said Rosemary Rose, Carrington Charitable Foundation chairman. “The proceeds will continue to assist veterans with their mobility, stability, purpose and prosperity.”
Carrington Charitable Foundation is the non-profit organization of The Carrington Companies, and it honors veterans through its signature program, Carrington House, which honors the sacrifices of the nation’s servicemen and servicewomen who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
To date, Carrington House has built nearly two dozen custom, adaptive homes in communities across the U.S., each designed to meet the special needs of a wounded veterans and their families. Two more homes are on track for completion this year, and three more homes are scheduled to be completed in 2017. Most recently, Carrington House has officially broken ground on a home in North Carolina for Master Sgt. David Glenn, his wife, Robin, and their two children. The new home will be a complete rebuild on their current property, and is slated for completion in May of 2017. CCF recently announced it is expanding its mission to provide veterans with the guidance and support they need to rejoin civilian life through such services as job-search assistance and business-plan consulting, to counseling and treatment referrals.
The Carrington Charitable Foundation has been a leading supporter of the Veteran’s Airlift Command. Working with a network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots, the Veterans Airlift Command organizes free air transportation for severely wounded veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts and their families. For the past nine years, Carrington Aviation has participated on missions with aircraft and crew, transporting heroes to medical facilities for treatment and reuniting them with their loved ones.
