Purple Heart Gives Hope to Atlanta’s Homeless Veterans – Join Us Oct. 17th 2011


Attention Golfers, Members, Donors, one and all! You are invited to the 16th annual “Cost of Freedom Classic” charity golf tournament at the Northwood Country Club, 3157 Club Dr., Lawrenceville, GA on Monday, Oct. 17, 2011.  A shotgun start will begin at 11:30 AM. 


Held in honor of Pete Wheeler, who for 57 years has been the Commissioner of Veterans Affairs for the State of Georgia, this annual tournament raises funds to assist the Atlanta VA Medical Center in the conduct of their support program for homeless Veterans in the Atlanta area.  According to Tournament Director Jim Randles, “There are over 8,000 homeless veterans in the Atlanta area.  The proceeds from this event will help many veterans, who might not otherwise be able to help themselves, re-start their lives through the resources and support of many businesses, corporations, and individuals in the Atlanta Metro region.”


The public is invited to support and participate in the tournament by entering a foursome, sponsoring a hole, or buying an ad in the program at a nominal cost.  The fee for the tournament is $125 per player to participate in a “Ft. Lauderdale Scramble” that includes all fees, prizes, lunch, a banquet dinner, and much, much more.  To make a donation, purchase an Ad for the program, or to register to play, go online to www.gapurpleheart.org or call: 770-695-5647 (day) or 678-615-3454 (evening) before October 5, 2011.
