Neal Communities (www.nealcommunities.com), the area’s largest and most established, locally owned and operated private builder, recently donated $10,000 to benefit the Boca Royale Semper Fi Fund Charity Fundraiser, a local nonprofit organization established by Boca Royale Golf and Country Club residents dedicated to helping its parent organization, the Semper Fi Fund, and its subsidiary, the America’s Fund.
This year’s Boca Royale Semper Fi Charity Golf Tournament raised an impressive $204,000. Neal Communities has been supporting the event since 2012 and joined this year’s Charity Golf Tournament as a co-sponsor.
The Semper Fi Fund and its program America’s Fund provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post 9/11 wounded, critically ill and injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. This ensures that they have the resources they need during their recovery and transition back to their communities.
The 2015 tournament, which was held Saturday, March 28 at the Boca Royale Golf and Country Club, began at 11 a.m. with a shotgun start. Prior to the start of the golf game, attendees grabbed a pick-up lunch to go. At 4:30 p.m., participants returned to the country club for cocktails and dinner, a live auction, golf prizes and a 50/50 drawing.
“The residents of Boca Royale Golf and Country Club are honored to sponsor the sixth annual Charity Event to provide support to our injured heroes and their families,” said retired U.S. Navy Captain Frank Lugo, chairman of the Boca Royale Semper Fi Fund Charity Fundraiser. “We thank Neal Communities and all of our generous sponsors for supporting these heroes. They have given so much for us – now it is our turn.”
Established in 2010, the Boca Royale Semper Fi Fund Charity Fundraiser is an all-volunteer organization. The 501(c) 3 tax-exempt organization has raised and sent the parent organization over $500,000 since 2010.
Since establishing the Semper Fi Fund in 2004, the nonprofit has distributed over $102 million in grants and helped more than 13,500 heroes and their families. For more information, call 941-475-7025 or visit http://bocasemperfifund.org.
