Reno Contracting hosted the 15th Annual Golf Tournament benefitting The Warrior Foundation at the Rancho Bernardo Inn and Golf Course on Tuesday, June 18th. The event was a great success, raising more than $32,500 for the Foundation. The event is a collaborative effort of San Diego subcontractors and local businesses who generously came together for a wonderful day in support of these men and woman. The golf course was filled with excitement as each of the teams lined up ready for the course. The morning clouds parted and the sun filled the sky for an exceptional day of golf.
“It was a resounding success and outpouring of appreciation for our wounded warriors, coupled with a beautiful setting at Rancho Bernardo Inn,” said Greg Carnegie, Reno Contracting’s Energy Program Manager.
The Warrior Foundation aims to be the leading force in assisting, honoring and supporting the military men and women who have so bravely served and sacrificed for our country. The Foundation is committed to supporting our Warriors by providing quality of life items and support services designed to assist veterans and their families during recovery. Contributions raised from past golf tournaments have provided special amenities including a new lounge area at the Naval Medical Center San Diego Medical Hold Building and has also paid for plane tickets to send the Warriors home for the holidays. The Warrior Foundation also has a housing arm, Freedom Station, which provides a temporary residence and supportive recovery environment for injured Marines, and Army and Navy veterans as they make the transition from military service to civilian life. Freedom Station is a 12-unit housing facility where warriors reside while they continue to receive medical treatment and prepare for new challenges in the civilian world.
“We had a great day and so appreciated all that the Reno Family did for our warriors. “One of our attendees, an amputee, told me that he was beyond excited to participate. Their quality of life is so much better because of all you have done and given,” said Sandra Lehmkuhler, Board Member and President of the Warrior Foundation.
