9th Annual Golf Outing
11:00 Registration & Lunch
12:00 Shotgun Start
It is our small way to humbly say “thank you”, and to remind as many of our veterans as we are able that they will not be forgotten……not ever.
If you were at our events in 2018 & 2019, you heard from our friend, Army CPL Kevin McCloskey, who participated in our outing and spoke about his injuries from 2008 in Logar Province, Afghanistan. In fact, Kevin celebrates his “Alive Day”, every year on June 18th. It was a very moving story. He also told us of the specially designed home that was being donated to him and his Wife in Southampton from Homes for our Troops. You can read more about Kevin’s story here: https://www.hfotusa.org/building-homes/veterans/mccloskey/. We made a commitment that day to Kevin to dedicating our efforts to ensure he was able to move into his home as soon as possible. I am proud to tell you, that with the assistance of Friends for Heroes, Kevin and his wife Bridget took the keys to their new home on January 12th, 2019. What a great day that was to see an entire community welcome Kevin and Bridget home. I encourage you to click on the following links:
Last year, we were able to complete the fences at our friend, Army CPL Kevin McCloskey’s home. There were delays due to the pandemic, but we finally got it done! Kevin has participated in our Golf Outing and spoke at our banquet over the last three years about his injuries from 2008 in Logar Province, Afghanistan. He also shared with us about the specially designed home that was built and donated by Homes for our Troops. With the assistance of Friends for Heroes, Kevin and his wife Bridget took the keys to their new home in 2019. It was a great day that was to see an entire community welcome Kevin and Bridget home!

Friends for Heroes visit Shamrock Reins
It was an honor to have our foundation visit Shamrock Reins and it’s founder, Janet Brennan, to present her with a check for $5,000 from Friends for Heroes. Shamrock Reins is a charitable organization that provides equine assisted activities and therapies for veterans, active duty & reserve service members. Their work is inspiring and life saving. Thank you to the Bucks County Bar Foundation for introducing us to this wonderful place. We promise this will not be the last you see of us, Janet!
How Can We Help?
Friends for Heroes Foundation was founded six years ago with the stated mission of helping veterans and their families in the area through an annual Golf Outing. With the help of many of you, we have been able to raise a considerable amount of money to help those in our area. The Friends for Heroes Foundation has the financial resources to aid local veterans and their families pay mortgages, rent, buy food or even help provide their families with a happy holiday season. We are hopeful that this message will motivate all of you to share our organization with the hope of reaching a veteran or the family of a veteran in need. We cannot reach them on our own.
Our goal for Friends for Heroes Foundation is to “humbly say ‘thank you,’ and to remind as many of our veterans as we are able that they will not be forgotten…not ever.”
If you are a veteran in need of a helping hand, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your situation and your contact information and we will do our very best to help. All information is kept confidential.
