No One Left Behind, No One Forgotten
WASHINGTON, DC, August 30, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — United States Navy SEALs have been at the tip of the spear in the fight against terrorism for years. Deployments, inherently dangerous training, and combat have taken their toll on operators and their families. The SEAL Legacy Foundation, (SLF) is a 501(C)(3), nonprofit organization, provides support to families of wounded and fallen United States Navy SEALs, educational assistance for SEALs and their families, and other charitable causes benefiting the SEAL community. For the first time ever, the SEAL Legacy Foundation is coming to DC to expand their support of our nation’s heroes by hosting the Nation’s Capital Night of Heroes Gala and Patriot Open Golf Event on October 2nd and 3rd.
Rear Admiral Thomas C. Lynch (USN Ret.) is the Honorary Chairman of the Night of Heroes which will commence at 5 PM with a reception and silent auction at the Trump National Golf Club. Numerous SEAL Legacy Foundation special guests will be flying in to participate in the evening fireside chat and bourbon tasting as well as join the Patriot Golf Open at Potomac at Avenal Farm the following day. The Patriot Golf Open kicks off with a 10 AM breakfast followed by a Navy SEAL Demonstration and an 11:00 AM Shotgun Start. The event will conclude at 4 PM with a luncheon and awards party.
Commander Mark McGinnis, SLF Managing Director, stated, “We invite the GovCon community to join us. You don’t have to play golf to support our mission, meet some heroes and have some fun. Visit our Night of Heroes & Patriot Golf Open page to explore sponsorship opportunities, today.”
