JWB hosted our 2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament benefiting K9’s For Warriors on October 15, 2018. K9’s For Warriors is an organization that provides service canines for our wounded warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injuries and other ailments. They are the largest provider of service dogs for disabled American veterans in the country.
Last year JWB, our sponsors and our clients raised over $32,000 for K9’s For Warriors through our charity golf tournament and this year we wanted to do more! Raising a bunch of money was a great start in our first charity golf tournament last year but this year we wanted to give in a more personal and meaningful way.
As one of the largest home builders in Jacksonville, we thought it would be really cool if we could give use all of the money we’re raising to build a house and give it to a deserving wounded warrior. Rick Smith of Jacksonville was chosen as our warrior and we were able to present him with the keys to his brand new home! Rick, his family, and his service dog Berkley were overcome with emotion at the life-changing event. There were lots of hugs, handshakes and family stories shared as we all celebrated the wonderful occasion.
JWB would like to say a big thank you to our team, vendors, sponsors and our entire network who came together selflessly to make a positive impact in our community and change Rick’s life in a way that he never could have imagined.
Here’s a short video about Rick and the impact we were able to make on his life.
