Golf is one of the most social games.
Generally, civilians have little interactions with service members. Our Golf Tournament allows them to:
“If you want to get to know a person’s character, spend 5 hourson the golf course with them.”
- know our veterans, specially those wounded in combat.
- thank them personally for their service; a simple gesture that recognizes and gives meaning to their sacrifice overseas.
HISTORY In its 20th edition, Our Golf Tournament is a tradition since 2001. That year the organization, under the name of 9/11 Help America Foundation (9/11 HAF, 2004-2012), donated the proceedings to the widow of Michael Mc Donnell, a young businessman, husband, and father killed in the World Trade Center. In a thank-you-letter to us she said:
Her words encouraged us to continue our work and, in 2012, 9/11 HAF changed its name to WHOA to help the wounded heroes of the wars and combats that followed. Our mission continues to this day.
“After what you and your group have done it has made me realize that all humanity is not lost. “
