Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) November 10, 2017
HealthChannels will hold the Fore the Brave Pro-Am Charity Golf Tournament at the picturesque Lake Nona Golf & Country Club in Orlando, Florida. The event previously known as the ScribeAmerica Charity Golf Tournament, will take place on February 5, 2018 with the continued mission to raise money for veterans and their families.
Dr. Michael Murphy, CEO of HealthChannels and founder of ScribeAmerica, the nation’s most used scribe company, has rebranded the charity event to better align with the mission to provide support for fellow veterans. Dr. Murphy entered the healthcare industry after serving as an Army Ranger in the 1st Ranger Battalion in Savannah, Georgia.
Under his leadership, ScribeAmerica has grown since 2004 to become HealthChannels, a group of three distinct, highly specialized companies. The Fore the Brave Pro-Am Charity Golf Tournament reflects Dr. Murphy’s dedication to honor the legacy of fallen service men and women, while championing veteran causes.
“HealthChannels has a unique opportunity to support military veterans. We make an effort to hire veterans within our company and support veteran causes. The charity golf tournament is another opportunity for us to give back to military families, and we look forward to increasing our contribution this year,” says Dr. Murphy.
Proceeds from the event will benefit three well-respected nonprofit organizations: Folds of Honor, The Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund, and Wounded Veterans Relief Fund. Last year the event raised over $185,000 and HealthChannels contributed all proceeds to highly regarded non-profits.
The following day will feature the second annual HealthChannels Innovation Summit for business leaders in the healthcare industry to discuss best practices. The Summit will include lively panel discussions along with Q & A sessions with thought leaders sharing insights and trends.
The three veteran-focused nonprofits were chosen on the basis of the well-respected work they do for injured veterans, and their relatively low operating costs that permit a high proportion of donations to go directly into support programs. A brief synopsis of each is provided below.
Folds of Honor
Since 2007, the Folds of Honor has carried forth a singular, noble mission: to provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members. Their logo, a folded American Flag, serves as a reminder of the heavy price of freedom as well as a symbol of hope. To learn more about Folds of Honor, visit http://www.foldsofhonor.com
The Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund
Ranger Assistance Programs support the ongoing needs of service members and families beyond what the government can offer. The Lead the Way Fund works directly with the U.S. Special Operations Care Coalition to assist U.S. Army Rangers. Visit http://www.leadthewayfund.org
Wounded Veterans Relief Fund
Wounded Veterans Relief Fund – formerly Wounded Warriors of South Florida – provides temporary, immediate, financial assistance to disabled veterans from Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation New Dawn (OND). Wounded Veterans Relief Fund assists wounded warriors returning from these combat areas, while maintaining a high respect for privacy of veterans and their families. To learn more about
