The March 12th Wounded Warrior event brought out more than 220 club members and guests to play Broken Sound Club’s two courses. They were joined by notables including former Astronaut Dr. Ed Mitchell who walked on the moon during the Apollo 14 mission, Boca Raton Mayor Susan Whelchel, and a Marine Color Guard, which opened the day’s ceremonies.
Broken Sound Club General Manager John Crean said Broken Sound members , led by Sal Caragliano, embraced the opportunity to help make a difference for service members who give so much of themselves. Caragliano credited the tournament’s success to a host of supporters and participants who made the tournament possible, including Scott Feller and John Skaf, Broken Sound Golf Directors and their staffs, the ladies golf league, Col. Ed West (Ret.) who was instrumental in inviting
Dr. Mitchell, and club members of the Wounded Warrior Project Golf Tournament committee.
Broken Sound’s goal next year is to rally multiple area country clubs for a Wounded Warrior Tournament Day to raise as much money as possible for this worthwhile cause.
