AllSouth Federal Credit Union hosted Soldiers and Vets Charity Golf Tournament to benefit Transitions Homeless CenterMay 25, 2023
AllSouth Federal Credit Union hosted its annual Soldiers and Vets Charity Golf Tournament on Thursday, May 18, 2023, at Golden Hills Golf and Country Club in Lexington, South Carolina. Thanks to the generosity of the participants, sponsors, and donors, this year’s tournament raised $25,000 for Transitions Homeless Center, the Midlands largest homeless center. Gavin Brown, Vice President of Advancement said, “Ten percent of all homeless individuals in South Carolina identify as a veteran. At Transitions, we have increased our ability to house homeless veterans and help them obtain permanent housing. Our work is only made possible by the support of community partners like AllSouth.”
Over 100 community supporters, veterans, and active military members played in this year’s golf tournament. The Soldiers and Vets Charity Golf Tournament offered a special “Sponsor a Soldier” sponsorship which allowed 29 veterans and active military members to play in the tournament at no cost to them.
Through the help of volunteers and AllSouth team members, the Soldiers and Vets Charity Golf Tournament is dedicated to bringing awareness to and supporting local military causes in the Midlands. Since 1996, AllSouth has helped raise over $350,000 in support of local charity organizations. “Giving back to the community we call home through our support of the military and local organizations is extremely important to us. We recognize the positive impact Transitions Homeless Center has on our community and were grateful for the opportunity to have them as the beneficiary of this year’s tournament,” said Connie Hernandez Vizitei, AllSouth Federal Credit Union Chief Marketing and Training Officer.
