Golf For Good: Local Tournament Raises Funds & Awareness

Golf For Good: Local Tournament Raises Funds & Awareness

According to The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, every 14 minutes someone in the United States commits suicide.

Help raise awareness to this growing issue, and reach out to those affected by suicide at The AFSP National Capital Chapter 's Second Annual Charity Golf Tournament on May 23rd.

Last year, the organization was able to raise $18,000, which benefitted the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and their dedication to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy programs.

The 18-hole golf tournament is located at one of the area’s nicest courses at Andrews Airforce Base in Md., and features a fully catered barbeque lunch and refreshments.

The tournament also incorporates contests and prizes including restaurant gift certificates, and paid vacations to Chicago, Florida, and San Francisco, as well as trophies for winning foursomes.

WHS Alumni Update: Swoosh!

By Terry and Leilani Ames

We recently received a letter from the Washington Humane Society (WHS) asking how Swoosh was doing. We adopted “Spain” in February 2011 and renamed the boy Swoosh (for the spot on his backside that resembles the Nike "swoosh" logo). When we got him our vet noted that he was overweight and needed to lose some pounds since it seemed his back legs were having a tough time supporting him. He suggested that we watch what he eats and get him exercising.
