Local Trial Lawyers Raise Over $50,000 for Returning Heroes Home at First Annual Clays Over the Brazos
Allied Advocates Foundation (AAF) recently held its first annual Clays Over The Brazos Sporting Clays Tournament to benefit Wounded Warriors at Fort Sam Houston and Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio.
(HOUSTON, TX) — The Allied Advocates Foundation (AAF) recently hosted a sporting clays tournament at the Rio Brazos Hunting Reserve in Simonton, Texas to benefit Returning Heroes Home (RRH). The mission of RRH is to provide support to Wounded Warriors and their families as these heroes recover from injuries sustained while protecting this country. AAF is pleased to announce that over $50,000 was raised at the tournament.
“Fighting For Those Who Fought For Us”
The net proceeds of the first annual Clays on The Brazos will be donated to Returning Heroes Home to provide financial support for the continued expansion and improvement of the Warrior and Family Support Center near Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas.
The Warrior and Family Support Center supports Wounded Warriors returning from Iraq and Afghanistan who are being treated at the Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) at Fort Sam Houston and their family members. It is a safe place for injured military personnel to work through physical, mental, and emotional rehabilitation alongside their families.
Already, the Center has grown from a 1,200 square foot building to a brand new 12,000 square foot complex, equipped with a large area for social gatherings, kitchen and dining facilities, a game room, private counseling rooms, and large front and back porch areas. Phase II of the Center’s expansion plans includes a Theraputic Garden and Freedom Park, which will build on the environment for social and emotional healing.
“A Vision To Give Back”
AAF was started by five attorneys who wanted to give back to the community that has given them so much. It was formed as a philanthropic non-profit organization with the goal of raising funds annually for worthy causes throughout Texas.
With so many injured military personnel coming home to facilities without the proper resources to care for them, choosing an organization dedicated to these brave men and women was the clear choice for AAF’s 2013 efforts. After evaluating several charitable organizations, AAF is pleased to be able to donate the net proceeds from the event to Returning Heroes Home in support of its mission to provide needed services for Wounded Warriors at BAMC and Fort Sam Houston.
