The US LBM Foundation, the nonprofit organization of US LBM, raised $1 million at the sixth edition of its charity golf tournament.
Held at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. on Sept. 7, funds raised at the event will go to multiple charities.
This includes a $300,000 contribution to the Gary Sinise Foundation, which will be used to support the R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment) program.
R.I.S.E. builds specially adapted smart homes for severely wounded veterans. Participating in this year's tournament was retired U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Nick Kimmel, who lost an arm and both his legs in Afghanistan, and received an adapted smart home from the Gary Sinise Foundation in 2016.
Additional beneficiaries of this year's event include Puppies & Golf, which advocates for dogs in need of companionship; the Langer Family Foundation, which works to support and strengthen families; and the U.S. Adaptive Golf Alliance, which is focused on inclusion and accessibility in golf for disabled players.
