The Healing Power of Golf

Men have been telling their wives for years about the amazing restorative powers of a round of golf with friends. Well, with the help of the Healing Heroes Network, they have quite a bit of support to back up their claim.

HHN is proud to announce the 2nd annual "Golfing For Heroes" charity golf tournament to benefit the wounded warriors of HHN. This year the tournament, sponsored by the 13 Ugly Men Foundation, will be held at Countryside Country Club's beautiful Bay and Lake courses on Sunday, April 22, 2012. Along with amazing prizes for the first, second, and third winning foursomes, participants will get to enjoy prizes for contests like 'Closest to the Pin', 'Longest Drive,' and a ‘Hole-In-1 Kia Optima’ provided by Friendly Kia!

All the proceeds from the tournament will go to HHN for their mission of assisting wounded warriors injured in Iraq or Afghanistan after 9/11/01.

"We are so excited for the tournament this year,” said Stacey Spiegel, Executive Director of Healing Heroes Network. “Some of the local veterans we have assisted will be at the event. We think it’s very important for people to see what their generous donations provide and the difference it makes for our injured military members and their families.”
