BCA Host Red, White, & Blue Golf Tournament to Help Support the Lone Survivor Foundation

Quick update on our 2nd annual Lone Survivor Foundation military veterans golf fundraiser held last Friday, October 2, 2015. This year, we had 40 teams participate and over 50 sponsors, donating over $100,000 in potential prizes. The event netted over $35,000, more than doubling last year and breaking our target of $25,000.

The Lone Survivor Foundation helps military veterans with physical or mental health issues adjust to civilian life. Their retreat was built at Crystal Beach last year and brings veterans and their families in for individual and group counseling. Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects many returning Veterans, who commit suicide at a rate of 22 per day, more than three times the national average. The Lone Survivor Foundation was established by local hero Marcus Luttrell, a Navy Seal caught in an ambush in Afghanistan which killed all of his team and all the members of a rescue helicopter. A movie by the same title starring Mark Wahlberg publicized the tragic incident. Read more about the event.
