Carrington Charitable Foundation’s Inaugural Golf Classic to Benefit the Veterans Airlift Command

SANTA ANA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Carrington Charitable Foundation’s Inaugural Golf Classic is scheduled for Monday, October 17th, to benefit the Veterans Airlift Command (VAC) and the Carrington Charitable Foundation (CCF). Funds raised through this event will support the administrative functions required to coordinate the efforts of the VAC volunteer pilot network, which includes arranging free air transportation for veterans of Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) for medical and other compassionate purposes.

“We are very passionate about the Veterans Airlift Command and the work they do to unite troops with their families. We hope our golf tournament will raise awareness for their mission and provide funds to further the crucial work they are doing for injured Veterans.”

The VAC aids wounded warriors dealing with devastating injuries and long-term hospitalization in facilities that may be hundreds of miles away from their families, by arranging free air transportation for the families to the medical facilities where they are receiving treatment. The VAC sees this service as a step forward in paying back the enormous debt owed to these heroes.

CCF, through Carrington Holding Company subsidiary Peregrine Jet, has been donating flights on their aircraft to the VAC for the past four years. Witnessing firsthand the touching personal stories of the Veterans, CCF has been actively donating flight services, fuel, insurance and crew to the VAC. Eager to further support the mission to connect troops and their families, CCF was inspired to hold their Inaugural Golf Classic in honor of the VAC and help continue this critical transportation to injured Veterans. Over 97% of total in-kind donations and funds raised by the VAC throughout the year go directly to the cause – only 2.66% are used for administrative purposes.

“Each year we survey our Associates to identify their charitable areas of interest, and one of the main areas identified was assisting our servicemen and women,” comments Rosemary Rose, Chairman of the CCF Board of Directors and wife of Bruce Rose, CEO, Carrington Holding Company. “We are very passionate about the Veterans Airlift Command and the work they do to unite troops with their families. We hope our golf tournament will raise awareness for their mission and provide funds to further the crucial work they are doing for injured Veterans.”
