As we reflect upon the significance of this day, we are also in the final push for our SEAL Legacy Foundation Greater Boston Patriot Dinner (September 23rd) and Warrior Golf Open (September 24th). We are looking to fill seats at the dinner as well as have some golf spots still open.
Seal Legacy Foundation is a non-profit that was founded in 2011, shortly after 17 SEALs and five Naval Special Warfare support personnel gave the ultimate sacrifice during a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. These 22 national heroes left behind 12 spouses and 26 children. The government-provided insurance and pensions only provided a small amount of support for these families, and others like them. There are huge, unfunded gaps left behind – which is where the SEAL Legacy Foundation helps. Since inception, the foundation has provided millions of dollars in direct support to help Navy SEALs and their families and continues to do so thanks the generosity of patriots around the country.
Ongoing, the Foundation provides vital support to SEALs and their families during loss, injury and other challenges. Proceeds from our Boston based events will benefit the SEAL Legacy Foundation (www.SEALLegacy.org) and a new program at Home Base (www.HomeBase.org – a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program) which will directly benefit the SEALs to heal the invisible wounds Veterans, Service Members and their Families through world-class clinical care, wellness, education and research.
· There will be an active or retired duty Navy Seal at every dinner table and in every golf foursome. We encourage participants to get to know them.
· We have gold star wives and gold star family members in attendance to honor our fallen heroes and the sacrifices all have made.
· There is a diverse silent auction available throughout the dinner and extensive live auction programmed
· We have a fantastic panel of speakers lined up that will truly help participants understand the struggles Seals go thru ongoing as well as educates them on the assistance that HomeBase provides
