On Wednesday the Coalition hosted the Joseph P. Caggiano Memorial Golf Tournament to benefit our wounded veterans. Again this year the tournament was held at Whiskey Creek Golf Course in Ijamsville, Maryland. Despite some intermittent rain through the early part of the round, it was a wonderful day! The Coalition was honored to have several veterans attend and play as our guests. We kicked off the day by presenting separate checks for $5,000 each to Hope for the Warriors and Operation Second Chance.

Over the last three years the Coalition has contributed over $30,000 to these two organizations. Thank you to our title sponsor PwC! Thank you to our Lunch & Reception sponsors, CohnReznick and Integrity Consulting! Thank you to our Beverage Cart sponsors, Baker Tilly and 3M! Thank you as well to all the hole sponsors and contest sponsors and each of the golfers who purchased “mulligans,” a great “strategic sourcing” buy! Without your collective commitment to supporting our veterans, the event would not have been possible.

A special thank you to Paul and Mike Caggiano for attending and playing in the tournament. Paul and Mike also presented the checks to Operation Second Chance and Hope for the Warriors. Joe Caggiano, Paul’s son and Mike’s brother, was the driving force behind the Coalition’s charity efforts in support of wounded veterans. The success of the tournament is largely due to all the great work Joe did in building up the event. The golf tournament was a labor of love for him. It is an honor and a privilege that the tournament is named in Joe Caggiano’s memory! God Bless the Caggiano Family and all our veterans!
Finally, thank you to the Coalition staff and the staff at Whiskey Creek for making the tournament such a smooth-running success. You made it look easy!
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
Roger Waldron, President
