A groundbreaking ceremony was held yesterday, October 19, at The Polo in Summer Hill to announce the charities chosen to receive the proceeds of Woodside’s Spring 2017 Southern Living Inspired Home Tour ticket sales. Thanks to Woodside’s own non-profit organization and volunteer base for the 2017 Home Tour, Women of Woodside, three deserving charities were selected to receive these funds. Take a look below for photos from yesterday’s ceremony, and for information on each of the three charities selected!
Operation FINALLY HOME
Operation FINALLY HOME is a national, non-profit organization with a unique network of experienced builders, suppliers, and supporters dedicated to building homes for wounded, ill or injured veterans, surviving spouses and their families. They bring together homebuilders, the military and communities to build custom mortgage-free homes for America’s military heroes and the widows of the fallen, those who have worn America’s uniform and sacrificed so much to defend our freedoms and values, providing a strong foundation to help them move forward with their lives.
Saratoga WarHorse creates a win-win situation for veterans and off-the-track Thoroughbreds by providing an effective alternative method for healing emotional wounds and offering the horses rewarding and meaningful work after their racing careers have ended. This program offers veterans a three-day experience that has proven to be effective and invaluable for those struggling to adjust to life after military service, at no cost to the veterans.
The ALS Association
The ALS Association is the only national non-profit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease on every front. By leading the way in global research, providing assistance for people with ALS through a nationwide network of chapters, coordinating multidisciplinary care through certified clinical care centers, and fostering government partnerships, The Association builds hope and enhances quality of life while aggressively searching for new treatments and a cure.
