Veterans Memorial Day Outing

Veterans Memorial Golf Outing
May 19, 2019
Dunes Golf Course, Sanibel
Benefitting Florida Veterans

Songs and Stories for Soldiers, Inc., a Sanibel veterans service foundation, and the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs (FDVA) have announced that the beneficiaries of the Veterans Memorial Golf outing on Sunday May 19 will be the 1,000 veterans in the seven veterans nursing homes throughout the state of Florida.

Veterans’ nursing homes provide healthcare services to veterans who are suffering from dementia, or Alzheimer disease. In 1988, Florida citizens endorsed a constitutional amendment to create the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs as a separate agency charged with providing advocacy and representation for Florida’s veterans and to intercede on their behalf with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.  Their advocacy increases federal benefits for Florida’s veterans, improves the quality of life for veterans with service-connected disabilities, and provides access to federally funded medical care for eligible veterans.

Last year the 501c3 Songs and Stories and for Soldiers foundation, which provides MP3 player systems, did a pilot study with the FDVA at the Port Charlotte center and the system was so well received that both parties agreed to expand the program. All of the proceeds from this year’s outing will go to provide an MP3 player system to every veteran in the nursing homes.

Please consider sponsoring a green or tee in the name of a veteran by going to the website: Songsandstoriesforsoldiers.us to sign up. Every sign we put in place accomplishes two things. It pays for ten MP3 player systems for the veterans in the nursing homes and second it remembers a veteran who was important to you.

Sanibel is rich with many veterans who have served our country. With Memorial Day just a week after the outing it is a great time to remember a local veteran by sponsoring a tee or green. We need to raise $10,000 in order to give an MP3 player to every veteran in the FDVA nursing homes.

If you have questions or you want someone to come to your service organization or church to talk about the national organization started here on Sanibel, please contact Dan Perkins, 973-687-4826.
