GRANTING ONE WISH AT A TIME
Military service members in the Corpus Christi region now have a partner to navigate through hardships.
In 2009, Wish For Our Heroes (W4OH) president, Jeff Wells, noticed the need to assist average Active Duty service members and their families through hardships. "There are a lot of great military based
charities. Yet, there remains the need to assist the average Active Duty service member with basic needs like auto repairs, specialized medical equipment and even food for daily meals," states Wells.
Wish For Our Heroes accepts "Wish Requests" directly from the service member or a concerned confidant. After the request is received, W4OH develops a support plan to best meet the needs of the
service member. With a plan in place, W4OH leadership then "Grants the Wish," typically to the surprise of the service member. All "Wishes" are granted free of charge to the service member.
On October 21st, in conjunction with their inaugural golf tournament, W4OH will "Grant a Wish" to a service member residing in the Corpus Christi area. The Wish For Our Heroes Golf Tournament will be
hosted by the NorthShore Country Club in Portland, Texas. Golfers can register as a single for $125 or as a foursome for $450. Additional registration and tournament information can be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GolfForHeroes.
