Moss Foundation held its third annual golf tournament, the Plumb Bob Classic, at the Grande Oaks Golf Club on Dec. 5. The tournament attracted 140 golfers and raised more than $100,000 for South Florida non-profits.
“We are thrilled to have raised this money for so many organizations that share similar values with us,” foundation president Chad Moss said in a statement.
Moss Foundation immediately donated $20,000 to Wounded Warrior Outdoors, and the remainder will be donated to several charities in the South Florida community throughout the year.
Wounded Warrior Outdoors is a non-profit organization that exclusively provides wounded servicemen and women with therapeutic outdoor experiences across North America. Participating warriors are selected by the medical staff at their treatment facility and paired to the event that provides the most therapeutic potential for their given injuries, motivating them to rediscover abilities they felt were lost on distant battlefields. The expedition is all-inclusive and includes several therapeutic activities.
“At Moss, we encourage all of our employees to strengthen the relationships they have in the areas where they work and live and find ways to enhance the community and environment around them,” said Moss. “In line with this mission, we are delighted to contribute to Wounded Warrior Outdoors and the fearless veterans who have sacrificed so greatly to preserve the freedom we all enjoy in this country.”
The event’s title partner was Lotspeich Company of Florida, in addition to more than 30 corporate event partners. The winning team, representing Lotspeich, included Bob Gordon, Ricky Rivera, Shane Embert and Tom Gonzalez.
