Events

Beyond our financial contributions, we help our veterans through a variety of annual events designed to create a sense of community and show our support for our veterans and their families.

Golf Tournament

Why Golf? Golf is one of the most social games there is. They say if you want to get to know a person’s character spend 5 hours on the golf course with them.

At WHOA, we understand the need to build bridges between our community and our veterans. We have found no better way than for them to spend an entire day together. It's one of the most challenging games. Our vets are young and love a challenge.

Most people have very little contact or even know anyone that has served or been in combat. Almost all our veterans have been wounded or injured as a result of their service.

 Spending a day on the golf course gives our friends in the civilian world an opportunity to get to know our vets and thank them for their service. It's a small gesture that means everything to our vets-- recognition of their sacrifice. It’s a terrific way to raise much needed funding too. It’s an entire day with the vets.

The sponsors and contributors will have the satisfaction of making this their event and participating in some amazing tournaments benefiting some amazing young people.

It’s a tradition that we've carried on since our first Golf tournament in Nov 29th 2001. We donated the proceeds to the surviving spouse of Michael Mac Donnell a young husband and father killed in action. In her letter to us, she said, “After what you and your group have done, it has made me realize that all humanity is not lost “

And at the end of the day, there's an award ceremony -- a sit-down dinner with a  foursome that may include a combat Wounded Veteran

Join us on the golf course for a special day with our Combat Wounded Veterans.

WHOA Annual Turkey Giveway

As the year comes to a close, we have much to be thankful for.

First Blessing is the friendship and partnership we have cultivated with Albertsons.

A very special thanks to the managers at the Carson store on Main and Sepulveda, Vance Bennett and Jody Carr, who have demonstrated year after year to be real friends to WHOA and strong supporters for our Wounded Veterans and their families.

Because of this collaboration, we have had the wonderful opportunity to distribute complete turkey dinners to our Vets to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families for the 3rd consecutive year.  In total this year, WHOA passed out 120 complete turkey dinners which included a delicious turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, stuffing and all the trimmings.

Christmas Program

Christmas time is a special time of the year at Wounded  Heroes of America.  It’s a time when many of our Vets and  their families gather at the office to volunteer for  fundraising, buying gifts, wrapping, and making Santa  deliveries. 

It’s a true joy to see so many of our wounded  Veterans come out to interact with other families and enjoy  the holiday spirit with their own loved ones.

For more information, please contact our office at (310)  355-0266 or send us an email through our contact form.  You may also make a direct donation.
