Columbia, MD (PressExposure) June 17, 2009 -- Trusant Technologies, LLC, a veteran-owned firm, is hosting the Second Annual Eagle Classic Golf Tournament on Friday, August 28th, 2009 at The Links at Challedon Golf Course in Mt. Airy, MD. Registration is now open at http://eagleclassic.trusant.com.
Joe DiGangi, Trusant partner, invites players of all abilities to participate as he states, âWhile we are serious about raising funds for Fisher House, we are encouraging everyone who wants to play to come out and enjoy themselves. It is a âbest ballâ tournament, and as we saw last year, everyone had a great time playing golf, bidding on the silent auction items and enjoying great food.â
âLast yearâs tournament was a huge success. We raised over $38,000 for the Fisher House organization (www.fisherhouse.org). This year our goal is to beat that figure,â said Vince Marucci, Trusant partner. âWeâre going to have the usual suite of games â longest drive, closest to the pin, putting contest, as well as door prizes, a silent auction, and other fun activities. And new for this year â every registered player will also receive a free one-year subscription to Golf Digest magazine.â
All proceeds from this yearâs tournament will again go directly to the Fisher House, a program that builds "comfort homes" on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers to support military families. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.
Everyone is welcome to participate as either a golfer, sponsor, silent auction item donator, or simply by donating any amount to the Fisher House by mailing a check to Trusant made out to the âFisher House,â or donate using a major credit card at [http://www.trusant.com/charity.htm].
About Fisher House: The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports Americaâs military in their time of need and recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service.
Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House Foundation donates âcomfort homes,â built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times â during hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.
There is at least one Fisher House located at every major military medical center to assist families in need and ensure the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Annually, the Fisher House program serves more than 10,000 families, and has made available nearly 2.5 million days of lodging to family members since the program originated in 1990.
