On Nov. 6, the American Red Cross Central Florida Region held the 2015 Salute to the Armed Forces Golf Tournament at the Hawk’s Landing Golf Course at World Center Marriott. More than 100 business leaders from Orlando participated to support programs benefitting military members and their families. Proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces program in the Central Florida region.
“It was incredible to see the way the local business community came together to support the Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces,” Katherine Boo Gonzalez, executive director for American Red Cross of Greater Orlando, says. “Their support will enable us to continue our mission and provide assistance and counseling to military members and their families in our region.”
During the event, local business leader and advocate for veteran support, Kyle Evans, was presented with the American Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces award. “While serving our nation, I experienced firsthand the amazing work that the American Red Cross performs on behalf of our servicemen and women and how they continue to support our veterans,” he says. “This award demonstrates our shared commitment to assist those who dedicated their lives to our nation.”
