The Hendersonville, Tenn. office of Primary Residential Mortgage Inc. (PRMI)
recently held its first annual fundraising golf tournament and auction, benefitting Homes For Our Troops (HFOT)
. The event successfully raised money in support of HFOT, an organization dedicated to building and donating specially adapted homes for post-September 11th Veterans who have been severely injured in combat.
The team from PRMI’s Hendersonville branch was initially drawn to the mission of HFOT, a national organization, because of its shared interest in helping people attain homes. However, when they learned of the local work HFOT was doing to help Veterans not only in the state of Tennessee, but specifically in Hendersonville, they knew they wanted to lend their support.
“Our goal at PRMI is to help families achieve the American dream through home ownership,” said PRMI Division Manager James Harper. “I can’t express how much more it means when we can extend that assistance to our country’s heroes right here in our own backyard. We feel incredibly privileged to join together with our community partners in support of an organization that dedicates itself to improving the lives of our Veterans one customized home at a time.”
The fundraising event was well-attended, with 76 players participating in the golf tournament and more attendees joining later for the reception and auction. The PRMI team from Hendersonville invited local business partners, customers and community members who share in their desire to give back to Veterans to be part of the fundraiser.
“We are very thankful to PRMI for hosting such a large event to bring awareness to the needs of our Veterans,” said Senior Vice Commander for Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9851, David Moomy. “It was a great day, and we look forward to next year.”
“What an honor to be part of an event dedicated to giving back to those individuals who have sacrificed so much for the freedoms we all enjoy,” said PRMI President of Retail Chris Jones. “We have a responsibility, as local business leaders, to not only express our gratitude through service and contribution, but to also inspire those around us to do the same. Our communities are strengthened when we lift together.”
