On Friday, October 28, 2013, Charity and Fun were the name of the game at the 7th Annual Fisher House Golf Classic, held at the Pebble Creek Golf Course in New Tampa, FL. TTS’ very own Tony Foskey, Mike Coats, Scott Lock, and Mike Wheeler played in the tournament. Other employees who didn’t play, were just happy to spend the day volunteering and lending a hand where needed.
The Fisher House is a ‘home away from home’ temporary lodging facility for families of wounded military members and veterans being treated at the James A. Haley Veteran’s Hospital. The Tampa Fisher House, which opened in 2007, is a 16,000 sq foot, 21-bedroom home located adjacent to the hospital where these service members returning from combat areas like Iraq and Afghanistan undergo long, often difficult recuperation and rehabilitation. All money raised during the golf tournament went directly to the Fisher House, which depends on volunteers and voluntary support to enhance its operations and programs.
