First Annual ScribeAmerica Charity Golf Tournament Raises Funds for Veterans Causes
FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – January 6, 2016 – ScribeAmerica held its first annual golf tournament at Trump National Doral, Miami. The inaugural event was established to support wounded veterans by raising funds for three well respected veteran focused nonprofit organizations: The Wounded Warrior Project, The Independence Fund, and Wounded Warriors of South Florida.
The event was held on the famous Blue Monster course and was attended by members of the business and healthcare communities. After the day’s play, golfers enjoyed a dinner and awards reception including a keynote speech by LT. Gen Robert Chelberg, who spoke to the importance of support for veterans. Lt. General Chelberg is a 32-year army veteran and president of Wounded Warriors of South Florida.
The event chair, ScribeAmerica CEO Michael Murphy, M.D., himself a military veteran, summed up the day and purpose: “ScribeAmerica has been a longtime supporter of military veterans. We make an effort to hire veterans within the company and support veteran causes. The charity golf tournament is another opportunity for us to give back to wounded veterans. I would like to thank everyone who supported the event. We had a great day at Doral and we look forward to putting on a similar event next year.”
The three veteran-focused non-profits were chosen on the basis of the well-respected work they
do for injured veterans, and their relatively low operating costs that permit a high proportion of
donations to go directly into support programs. A brief synopsis of each is provided below.
The Wounded Warrior Project
The Wounded Warrior Project is guided by a vision to foster a generation of successful and well-adjusted service members. They raise public awareness of the needs of wounded service members and offer a variety of programs to assist those in need.
