THANK YOU! UVS Donations
Julie Gonzalez received a donation for United Veterans Service in the amount of $250.00 from Mary Jo Lyons on behalf of the Bay Area Navy Nurses Assoc. The UVS - Swing Club, founded by PWGA founder Helen Lengfeld after WWII, is a golf rehabilitation program offering physical therapy and gives the veterans an incentive to overcome their disabilities.
THE PROGRAM TODAY:
The Golf Swing Club has its tournaments at Moffett Field GC in Mountain View. There we play 9 holes of golf and have a separate 9-Hole putting tournament. These events host an average of 80 – 90 participants (patients, volunteers and VA Staff).
Golf : We average around 30 patient golfers of varying abilities, many with no experience to playing on their own. Limit 4 patients from any one program (HVRP, PTSD, WBRC, 1st Step, WTRP, Vets Respite care) Patient paired with Volunteer—each Patient must have a volunteer driver—VA sanctioned.
