Aston Gardens at Pelican Pointe Raises $14,000 for Veterans of US Armed Forces
Through the partnership with citizens organization Operation Second Chance, funds will be used to meet the needs of wounded, ill, or injured veterans and their families.
VENICE, Fla., June 12, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Aston Gardens At Pelican Pointe, a luxury senior living community located in Venice, FL presented a check for $14,000 to Operation Second Chance, a citizens organization committed to serving wounded, injured and ill veterans. The donated funds will be used to support ongoing humanitarian efforts, as well as to increase public awareness about the many sacrifices made by members of the US Armed Forces.
As part of coordinated efforts to raise money in support of US veterans, Aston Gardens At Pelican Pointe earmarked proceeds from its 10th Annual Dice & Diamonds charity event for the cause. The Dice & Diamonds event features various Las Vegas-style casino games, a gourmet, chef-prepared dinner, and exquisite ice sculptures. Having sold out in each of its ten years, Dice & Diamonds is one of the highlights of the Venice social calendar.
Cindy McGrew, Founder and CEO of Operation Second Chance, commented, “We are so proud, humbled and inspired by the generosity of the Venice community and Aston Gardens At Pelican Pointe, and we cannot thank them enough. It is truly an honor to have this local support for our nation’s veterans.”
Therese Williams, Executive Director of Aston Gardens At Pelican Pointe, pledged the community’s continuing support, saying, “We look forward to hosting the event again in 2020 at Aston Gardens At Pelican Pointe and hope to raise even more money next year.”
